EA shows off Mass Effect: Andromeda teaser

Published

While revealing little in the way of concrete details, EA showed off a beautiful behind the scenes teaser for Bioware’s next immersive video game series: Mass Effect: Andromeda, which promises to give players “more freedom than we’ve ever given players in a Bioware Game.”

You can check out the trailer below. The reveal came at the EA Play press conference today ahead of E3.

Bioware stated that the impetus behind the new series in the popular Mass Effect series – created from the ground up with the powerful Frostbite engine – is the ongoing “drive to seek out the undiscovered, push beyond our limits, and expand the boundaries of our known world.”

“With Mass Effect, we are going further than ever before: to Andromeda, to build a new home for humanity.”

For those of you who aren’t well-versed in astronomy, Andromeda is a whole different galaxy (like the Milky Way), which means it’s a whole lot of new territory for the characters in the Mass Effect universe to explore and should provide a lot of new and exciting alien content for the next Mass Effect title with new alien species and landscapes.

“We’ve created a universe for our to lose yourself in – a whole new galaxy for you to explore.”

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
