Gone Gold - Mass Effect: Andromeda

BioWare tweets the news that they've completed development on the new installment in their space opera series. They say, "Mass Effect: Andromeda has gone gold," and offer an image to celebrate. Mass Effect: Andromeda is expected on March 21st, so it sounds like everything is on track for the release.

I better be the damn Messiah. If I wanted to be a random nobody, I'd put the controller down and spend time with my family, go to work, watch TV.

What I understand is that you are actually the child of the Messiah in Andromeda, so that is a bit of a change of pace.

I want to be surprised by the game and have therefore not read anything dealing with its story, so I am most interested in finding out if this is a prequel, sequel, or alternate reality story.

I hope they won't sell parts of the story as dlcs like EA usually does.

Just finished replaying the original last night, got ~3 weeks to do the other 2.

If Andromeda is anywhere near as good as 2 I'll be over the moon. That said I hope, if this is a new trilogy, it's not as clunky as the original - that hasn't aged that well (and yes I modded the graphics up).

To be fair, Bioware did seem to withhold a large portion of the plot resolution behind DLC in Dragon Age: Inquisition, their last game.

Whatever, I pre-ordered, I miss this series. Bioware is equal to bethesda in the RPG story-weaving department, possibly superior to them, where every quest isn't generic and derivative. And even if it is a dumb fetch quest, there's a high probability that it will turn into something much more interesting, hidden twists etc. Plus bioware has great writing.

Dude... way to miss the whole point. I would absolutely be willing to pay more and buy closer to release IF:

Based upon your previous posts, I highly doubt this would be the case...but I'll bite..

- They would NOT develop half a dozen DLCs in the first place but actually ship a complete game on release.
Really none of the DLC was required for a complete story with any level of satisfaction (sans the free DLC they released to 'explain' the stupid ME3 ending). Even the Promethean DLC wasn't required to enjoy ME3, it enhanced it greatly and fleshed out that race. Truly though, it wasn't required to enjoy ME3 as a whole.

- They would only release expansion-type DLC (like classic retail expansions). See Witcher 3 Blood&Wine and Hearts of Stone.
They kinda did with the ones they released that were major story additions. Whenever they added a new character, they gave an hour or so set of missions to integrate them into the story...which is pretty par for the course for games well before Bioware started doing them.

- They actually made a decent game. This shit doesn't look like it. Way too casual and really shitty Frostshite artificial graphics with an amazingly low level of detail in the scenes shown so far. There also seems to be zero RPG left. It's obviously all about very simplistic (i.e. even more simple than before) pew-pew now so yawn.

So what you're saying is that you'd pay for a game that you would want to play, but since you have such a massive chip on your shoulder you're just going to disparage others for buying a game they feel they'd enjoy and want to play...

Of course, you can continue to sit there and spout of subjective complaints while trying to state them as alternative facts while the bulk of people here will continue to ridicule you for the delusional whacko you portray.

To me it was the "finest example" of how to totally fuck over your customers and that is why those shitheads will not get a penny from me unless there is a GOTY this time (which I will buy only when it goes on a deep discount).

Oh no. Imagine the dismay at Bioware's offices right now when they realize YOU are not going to buy their game!

You heard the man Bioware. Develop half a dozen DLC's, package it up in the main game, ship it as a stand alone product and sell it for less than $10. Or you've lost yourself a customer!

Hoping this will be as epic as the original trilogy.

Still not going to preorder though.

Probably disappeared around the same time that "going gold" was relevant to the industry? Even on consoles, who buys physical media these days? What kind of cave-people are getting up off their couch to change an optical disc every time they want to play a new game? The ADD does not abide.

And BTW, Tesla. I want to see your Roadster fitted with a battery pack double the size. And price it under $1000, or I will never buy another car from you again!

Anyone else want to go?

Can't wait for this! Ian Frazier, lead game designer, said that Mass Effect 3 averaged about 24 hours of game play. He was asked on Twitter how long the campaign was for Andromeda and he said it's even longer yet.

What he didn't tell you is that the additional content will be scanning planets a la ME2...
