Mass Effect: Andromeda is an upcoming action role-playing third person shooter video game being developed by BioWare and to be published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 consoles. BioWare said the upcoming game will be a sequel to Mass Effect 3, but it didn’t make it clear if it will be a direct one or not. The game was officially announced back in June during the Electronic Arts press conference at E3 2015, and was expected to be released this year.

Unfortunately, BioWare just announced that the game will be delayed until “early” 2017, with the developer wanting to make sure that it releases a “flawless” game. To do so, the company has decided to not rush its release until the team is happy with the result.

In Mass Effect: Andromeda, gamers are able to play as a human female or male character. In addition, Mako, the popular six-wheeled vehicle, is coming back to the game, as revealed in the trailer released during the E3 2015 event. You can see the short trailer below:

The Mako vehicle was introduced in the first version of Mass Effect and many players have asked Bioware to bring it back. The buggy-type vehicle will be customized according to players’ preferences to move over land with ease.

The company hasn’t mentioned an exact date when this release will happen. However, new rumors say that the Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC sometime in January or February 2017.
