Mass Effect: Andromeda
The role-playing video game was released in March this year and is the forth entry in the legendary Mass Effect series.
The story of the game begins in the Milky Way Galaxy in the 22nd century. The storyline is centered on the fact that humanity is planning on populating the Andromeda Galaxy and the player assumes the role of Scott/Sara Ryder. The character is a military recruit who joins the Andromeda Initiative. He/She must deal with aliens and at the same time find humanity’s new home.
Previously, the Mass Effect trilogy was developed by BioWare (Edmonton Studio), while the fourth game was handled by a new team in Montreal. The game suffered many obstacles and changes of plans, especially in the creative vision department. Several patches were released after critical feedback resulted in low sale records.
