Mass Effect Andromeda, the long-awaited fourth installment in Bioware and EA’s space-faring, alien-smoothing series of role-playing games, finally has a release date. Coming for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, it’ll be out March 21, 2017 in the United States and March 23 in Europe.
Andromeda will feature the protagonist, a new character in the series named Ryder, exploring the eponymous galaxy on behalf of the human race, seeking planets to colonize 600 years after the tumultuous ending of Mass Effect 3. Beyond that and a few brief snippets of gameplay, not a lot has been revealed about the game since its official announcement in 2013; it’s certainly been more muted than most major game rollouts. EA promised in their announcement that we’d see more of the game at the Consumer Electronics Show later this week, and then we’ll see if the Andromeda Galaxy holds any promise come March.
