New Mass Effect: Andromeda Gameplay Shows Off The Tempest And Crew

Not only did Mass Effect: Andromeda’s launch trailer arrive today, but a second video has come online that shows off the RPG’s new ship, the Tempest, and introduces players to its crew.

You’ll see in the IGN video that the Tempest has a loadout station where you can customize your character’s weapons and armor, and also tweak your Nomad to your liking. You can also visit the character Peebe to buy and sell items, research items, and access the Strike team missions. Every interaction with characters on the ship changes throughout the game as you make decisions in the campaign.

Additionally, BioWare is livestreaming Andromeda gameplay right now from PAX East. You can watch the broadcast and hear directly from the developers right here on Twitch.

Another gameplay video released this week showed off Andromeda’s Nomad vehicle and upgrades.

Andromeda launches on March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A free trial for the game will be available through the EA/Origin Access programs on Xbox One and PC starting on March 16. This 10-hour trial lets players test multiplayer and single-player, though the campaign component is locked to a set number of missions.

In other news, BioWare has announced that Andromeda’s multiplayer DLC maps will be free, just like they were in Mass Effect 3. Additionally, the game’s trophies/achievements have leaked and can be seen here.
