Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer microtransactions will let players buy points with real money in order to unlock new items. UK retailer ShopTo revealed that Andromeda’s in-game currency is called Multiplayer Andromeda Points. Reportedly, players will have the possibility to buy points ranging from 500 points for £3.95 (approximately 5$) and up to 12,000 points for £79.96 (around $100).

Players can then use the points to exchange them for multiplayer packs. Each pack awarding you a set of gear, none of which you’ll know the identity of until you open the pack. For the time being, there is no information available as to what items players can expect to get through multiplayer packs not is it clear how many packs you can get for $100. If you don’t want to spend real-life money, you can always unlock them through normal gameplay, of course.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will also feature a prestige XP system that will offer players the possibility to unlock various benefits. The game’s devs have already revealed that benefits are different for each character.

We’re sure more details about microtransactions will emerge on March 16 when Mass Effect: Andromeda fans will be able to enjoy up to 10 hours of gameplay through the Early Access Trial system.
