Bioware's much-awaited reboot of the acclaimed space action series, Mass Effect: Andromeda has finally hit stores and is available to buy for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
For the uninitiated, Mass Effect is a space drama adventure game revolving around the exploits of Commander Shepard as he saves the galaxy from literal other-worldly forces. While a spiritual successor to the third game of the series, Andromeda is a separate storyline, lying between the timeline of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. It follows either Scott or Sara Ryder, an inexperienced military recruit who joins the Andromeda Initiative. This goal of it is to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy, following a 600-year journey to get there.
Watch the launch trailer for the game below:
The game published by Electronic Arts (EA) was delayed by several months. In January, the title's release date was revealed, along with the promise of the "most ambitious Mass Effect game to date". It even got a 10-hour trial for subscribers of EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC, ahead of its release. However, the trial was wrought with issues, as gamers complained of animation issues and "game breaking" bugs even though its narrative received praise.
Europeans will have to wait a couple more days to get their hands on the game, as it releases on March 23 in the region. Others, however, can enjoy Mass Effect: Andromeda on the platform of their choosing.
