Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer

A new trailer from Mass Effect: Andromeda shows off combat from the upcoming continuation of the sci-fi action series. The clip takes a look at weapons and skills, managing to cover a lot of detail in five and a half minutes. Word is: "Welcome to the Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay series. In this video, learn all about combat. Battle with weaponry from an alien galaxy, outmaneuver enemies with your jump-jet, and unlock the power of Biotics. In Mass Effect: Andromeda, you are on a mission to find a new home for humanity. How far will you go?"

Looks really cool. This topped GR:Wildlands in terms of hype (not that the GR:W beta really helped its case lol).

I don't even care about the story (never do usually, especially not sci fi), just looks fun.

yeh i wouldnt necessarily mind DAI:sci-fi-edition when it has this kind of FPS combat.. much better than that MMOish crap

also - jump jets = good times... also pretty sure this is the first time you can jump at all in Mass Effect series (vaulting doesnt count).. not being able to jump in games is a huge pet peeve, im all about that freedom of movement, so gotta give em props there

It's like they keep getting better at making Mass Effect.

I'm just hoping the multiplayer is as good as mass effect 3 multiplayer.

WHEN WILL THE REMOVE THE FUCKING SMILE OFF FEM-SHEP'S FACE? It's like she went to the Joan River Botox treatment center.
Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

It looks really good. Very smooth combat, graphics look great, combat looks fun. Jetpacks seems awesome, it really kind of nullifies the whole "ten enemies sit behind cover and on insanity difficulty this makes the battle take ten minutes" problem of ME2 (and to a lesser extent, ME3.)

I know not everyone is a fan of the "pick whatever you want" (on the flipside, then just pick a single class and stick to it. Doesn't seem that hard to stick to), but I really enjoy the absurd amount of combos you can do with it.

Random observations:

- You can jetpack AND Vanguard Charge. That right there is just Win.
- Biotic Pull and then Biotic Throw. So awesome.
- Either they're playing on super-easy mode, or enemies don't take as much damage to kill, which is good. ME2 especially suffered quite a bit from bullet-sponge syndrome.

- Doesn't seem like there's a lot of enemy variety, though that may just be on that one planet. And that was always a problem with Mass Effect. I'd kind of hoped that after DA:I they'd have learned that lesson, but maybe not.

- Your companions' AI is still utterly, mind-numbingly braindead. "Hey, a mech! Let's go run in front of it!" Jesus, Bioware... In your video it doesn't matter since it's probably running in debug mode, but can you seriously not make an AI SIT IN FUCKING COVER when there's a mech on screen????
- It seems as if they brought back the weapons system from ME1? If so, ugh, because that system was just terrible.
- FemRyder's rictus grin is awful. She looks like the female Joker.

All in all, though, I'm excited. This combat video looked significantly better than the few snippets of combat they've shown so far.

The whole game is made by the team that actually did the ME3 multiplayer portion, and they've said they're keeping it very similar, so I think it should be good.

Lol, yeah that was my first thought as well, what is with that smile? I mean these are professional trained explorers, they are not some farm girls first exploration of space. (nevermind, been playing Stardew)

Aside that it's a must-buy for me, new Mass Effect universe, better combat, and a properly driving rover. Even if everything else sucks, just driving around in the Frostbite engine on a sci-fi planet would make me happy And jump-jets.. but that is a given with Frostbite. I wonder if we can also do terrain damage?

Also jump-jet + charge attack is a win, yeah And instantly back to jump-jet, finally fixes the problem that you could kill yourself easily if you rushed an enemy and overlooked the 5 guys ducking in cover on Insanity dif (me2..)

yeh thats the shit.. i also liked the fact they have multiple melee weapons which makes it seem like less of an afterthought to do close quarters stuff, which is always my preference if possible

My *only* complaint is the ragdolling I've seen in various videos (not just this one) seems way too "light". Like the bodies have no... sorry but it really is the right word to use here... no mass to them. Maybe it'll look better in the actual game.

Who knows how the game will turn out? Considering its Bioware it will probably be sort of fun, but ultimately meh. It will however be no flop. They are going to make a billion dollars with this game.

That's true but we all know how it goes. First it will collect a shitload of OMG 9/10 and 10/10 due to bribes and lotsa slobbering from the preordering mouth breathers who need to justify their purchase.
Then three months later we'll get the first admissions why it wasn't actually that great and towards the end of the year it will start showing up in the raspberry awards of the year.

That is guaranteed with the shitty quality of this casual crap. It doesn't even have great gfx. It has the same unreal shitty artificial glossy look as all Frostshite games.
If anyone is seriously claiming this garbage looks good then they are either paid by EA or they are millennials whose standards have hit rock bottom.

Looks fine. CJ just hates everything. Literally everything.

I don't think it'll be a bad game. I doubt it will be anything truly different from the previous ones, but it'll be perfectly functional. I'm not nearly as excited about this one as I was the original trilogy, but that's probably partially because Horizon Zero Dawn has taken all that space in my brain.

I'm usually very hard on Bioware for their (lately) mediocre RPGs. I will say this in their defense though:

If they ever got the rights to make a Star Trek themed RPG, they would fucking knock it out of the goddamn park and then some!

He's not Canadian. I'm Canadian and sound nothing like that. I'm surrounded by other Canadians and none of them sound like that. This is how we sound, buddy.
