We'll be the first to admit that this isn't a huge slice of news - especially when it originates from a series of BioWare employee tweets - but it would appear that Mass Effect: Andromeda is now playable, at least to some degree. In other words, the game's development cycle is supposedly going smoothly.

"Just finished playing the first hour of Mass Effect: Andromeda," lead producer Cameron Lee stated on Twitter. When asked about what he experienced, Lee confirmed that it "was fun" and that he "got to shoot things in the face". We're glad that's cleared up, then.

In any case, this cheeky little social media tease probably means that it won't be too long until we finally get to see the sci-fi sequel in action. Are you hyped to see some gameplay for the first time? Strap on your N7 armour and take some cover in the comments section below.
