The first hour of Mass Effect Andromeda goes by at a blinding pace. We had a few crashes, but by and large it’s setting the stage for an epic new adventure as the Pathfinder. When we picked up the game over the weekend, we we knew we’d be playing a series we knew and loved – we just expect a brand new story to be what Mass Effect needed to feel fresh and exciting all over gain.

The story in MEA is altogether uncharted territory for the series. Brand new characters, hundreds of years after the events of Mass Effect 3, in a whole new galaxy. In short, this ain’t your grandpappy’s Mass Effect. While we know that Andromeda will pay homage to the original trilogy, we don’t know exactly how it will do so. When creating your Ryder, whether you choose the male or the female twin, you do get to import your save or choose whether Shepard was male or female in your story as well.
There’s a real sense of “Star Trek”-like exploration in this first mission, and we really hope the whole game carries through on that feeling. There’s something inherently cool about being on a bold voyage to find a new home for Humanity. Anyway – watch, beware some early game spoilers, and enjoy the first hour of Mass Effect Andromeda as Scott Ryder. Mass Effect Andromeda First Hour
