News Mass Effect: Andromeda Has Some Pretty Funny Scenes
But we don't think they're intentional
We jumped on Horizon: Zero Dawn for that cut-scene pretty quickly, so in the interests of keeping things fair, this Mass Effect: Andromeda clip that's doing the rounds probably deserves a post. If nothing else it had your humble host in stitches of laughter, so maybe it'll brighten up your day:
News Mass Effect: Andromeda Teams Up with a Multiplayer Gameplay Trailer
It's safe to assume that most people who play Mass Effect: Andromeda won't be in it for the multiplayer component - and that's totally fine - but we were fans of Mass Effect 3's co-op offering, so we're actually quite looking forward to seeing whether this new entry in the series can live up to the legacy. Fortunately, things do look...
News You Can Spend Up to £80 on One Mass Effect: Andromeda Multiplayer Microtransaction
Co-op point prices confirmed
Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer offering was always going to have microtransactions. EA's box-buying system seems to have spread to almost all of its properties over the last few years, and BioWare's latest is no different. Much like in Mass Effect 3, you'll be able to purchase packs of randomised items within the...
News Mass Effect: Andromeda's Jaal Means Business in New Gameplay
What does the scouter say?
Mass Effect: Andromeda introduces a new race to BioWare's series: the Angara. Naturally, your perception of these new aliens will be shaped by a member of your squad - namely the rather serious Jaal. And, if you'd like to know a bit about this relatively strange looking ally, you may want to give IGN's new video a watch,...
News Mass Effect: Andromeda Has a Crazy Amount of Dialogue
As you'd expect
Mass Effect: Andromeda will have "over 1,200" speaking characters, according to creative director Mac Walters. When you stop to think about it, that's a lot of chatty extraterrestrials. During a recent livestream, the BioWare boss said "when you look at the dialogue options, we're basically the equivalent of Mass Effect 2 and 3 put...
News Mass Effect: Andromeda's Marketing Machine Finally Kicks Into Gear with a Good Trailer

EA and BioWare have left it late, but we finally have a great trailer to get us hyped for the upcoming release. Why the heck has it taken this long? Head shaking...
News Take a Tour of Mass Effect: Andromeda's Version of the Citadel
Home sweet home
Those lucky sods over at IGN have got another video first for Mass Effect: Andromeda, this time taking us on a tour of the Nexus, which is essentially this game's version of the Citadel from the trilogy. It's got everything you'd expect: social areas, research labs, and a commercial district, but the twist here is that the Nexus...
News Mass Effect: Andromeda Will Get Free Multiplayer DLC
Just like Mass Effect 3
It seems as though BioWare has some steady plans in place for Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer component, as GM Aaryn Flynn has revealed that the co-op portion of the release will be "just like Mass Effect 3". That supposedly means free downloadable content in the form of new maps, equipment, and characters, as well as...
News Here's the First 13 Minutes of Mass Effect: Andromeda
If you're into that kind of thing
IGN have uploaded another first look video, this time sharing the initial 13 minutes of Mass Effect: Andromeda.

For everyone else, though, you should find...

The final frontier
Mass Effect: Andromeda has popped out another gameplay trailer, this time focusing on exploration and discovery - the "heart of the game", says the narrator. The video shows a load of new footage as Ryder and the team go about their business on an especially dusty planet. It looks like it'd be quite a nice place if it didn't bake...

Seeing as Star Wars...
News By the Way, Mass Effect: Andromeda's Mutliplayer Beta Is Never Happening
Just like some of you, we've been patiently waiting to hear about the long awaited Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer beta, but our hopes and dreams have just been shot to pieces by a BioWare blog post. In said post, the Canadian developer casually writes "while we will have live multiplayer at PAX East, there will no longer be a multiplayer tech...
News Here's 20 Minutes of Mass Effect: Andromeda Mission Gameplay
Fair warning: There are obviously some optional story spoilers in the video that we've embedded below. Watch at your own risk and all that.

News Combat in Mass Effect: Andromeda Looks Like a Huge Step Forward For the Series
New gameplay trailer reveals all
As far as we're concerned, Mass Effect's trademark blend of third person cover shooting and unique class-based abilities has gotten better and better with each instalment. Although Mass Effect 3's combat was still a little clunky, it had enough punch to it that it felt like a solid step in the right direction - and...
News Narrative Difficulty Returns to Mass Effect: Andromeda for Those Who Just Want Story
Insanity is back as well
Much like Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect: Andromeda will feature a very easy difficulty option named 'Narrative', lead designer Ian Frazier has revealed over on Twitter.

News Watch Some Ace Kills in Titanfall 2's Live Fire Trailer
Titanfall 2's new high-octane Live Fire mode is coming soon, and here you can get a little glimpse at the Pilots vs Pilots playlist. In the 12-player mode, two teams fight over a flag, with respawns disabled in order to maximise intensity. Rounds will last just 60 seconds, so this is all about who's willing to blink first. Bet you...
News Star Wars Battlefront 2 Will Have a Single Player Campaign
Will span multiple Star Wars eras

News Sadly, EA's Not Making Skate 4 Right Now
But it's coming, right?
Despite a tweet from a community specialist which hinted the contrary, EA's not working on Skate 4 right now. Chief executive Andrew Wilson confirmed the tidbit during an earnings call, joking that it's disappointing news for EA CFO Blake Jorgensen who's apparently a big fan of the franchise. Him and the rest of the Internet...
News EA Engagement Employee Tweets About Skate 4
And the Internet goes insane
A calculated demonstration of the power of social media or a subtle hint? Only the senior manager of community engagement at EA knows the answer to that. All it took was a single hashtag for Daniel Lingen to send the Internet into a frothing frenzy: Skate 4. You may not know this, but

News Mass Effect: Andromeda Cinematic Trailer Shows Off a Promising Story
Home away from home
Finding a new home planet for humanity in the depths of an alien galaxy can't be an easy task.

The title's latest trailer gives us our best glimpse...
News We're Blasting Off with a New Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer Tomorrow
Into the void
This industry just loves to build things up, doesn't it? Announcements of announcements, teaser trailers teasing actual trailers... The hype peddling just never stops, and BioWare's as guilty as anyone. The Canadian developer's been puffing its chest regarding Mass Effect: Andromeda for years now - long before we actually saw the game...
News Don't Worry About Mass Effect Andromeda's Most Important Asset
The banging will be good, apparently
Let's be brutally honest here: the main appeal of the Mass Effect franchise are the bedroom scenes. BioWare's one of the few developers to actually recognise sex as a regular activity – even if the whole interspecies stuff at play is a bit, y'know, weird. And the animations are awkward. And it's all a bit...

News BioWare: 'Absolutely No Reason' To Be Worried About Mass Effect: Andromeda's Release Date
Give it some space
Mass Effect: Andromeda is supposedly launching in spring next year. In other words, the sci-fi sequel is apparently only a few months away from being ready.

Video PS4's Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission Is Ace
It's a mouthful. There are way too many syllables in Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission, but fortunately this collaboration between Criterion (remember them?) and DICE is well worth downloading if you have a copy of the base game and a PlayStation VR headset lying around. It only lasts about 20 minutes, but it's comfortably...

So according to a lot of folks, Titanfall 2 is actually one of the best shooters to be released in years.

Fortunately,...
News Mass Effect: Andromeda Multiplayer Ties into Campaign, but Won't Make You 'Feel Cheated'
Co-op missions will be optional
Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer offering will expand upon the concept that BioWare introduced in Mass Effect 3 - we've known that for a while now.

News EA Says It's Committed to the Titanfall Franchise
But Respawn gaffer doesn't know what that means
Titanfall 2 is something of a critical darling, but it's been a commercial catastrophe.

This has prompted publisher EA to come out and say that it's committed to the...
News Battlefield 1, FIFA 17 Both Shine Brightly on PS4 Pro
Marketing deals appear to have prevented EA Games from shouting too loudly about the PlayStation 4 Pro patches for its two flagship games, but Digital Foundry has determined that both FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 are at their gob-stopping best on Sony's new system. The former soccer sim runs at an uncompromised native 4K resolution, while...

News Mass Effect: Andromeda Finally Gets a Proper Trailer
Now we're talking
Good lord, it's about time isn't it? BioWare has finally released a proper trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Not a video full of concept art, not a CG teaser, not a vertical slice of alpha footage, but an actual trailer. And what do you know, it's actually pretty good - aside from the horribly cliched blackouts. Can we stop with...

And here's the game's PS4 box art
It's N7 Day, which means that we're just hours away from getting our next look at Mass Effect: Andromeda.
