If there’s one thing we can all agree upon is that 2016 was an eventful year. However, that doesn’t mean 2017 will be boring and dull — quite the contrary. The year to come is already chock full with scheduled releases that will raise the bar to a new high in terms of gaming. One of the games expected to hit the market sometime in 2017 is the title that caught everyone’s eye at this year’s E3 convention.
We are, of course, talking about Mass Effect Andromeda, the next installment in the long-running franchise. Anyone serious about gaming will remember roaming the galaxy in Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3, solving problems, and preparing for imminent destruction. Mass Effect Andromeda promises an equally exciting experience that will, at the very least, match the quality of previous iterations.
We’re sure that a lot of you were already hooked on Andromeda since the first trailer came out, and just want to know when you’ll be able to get your hands on it. In that regard, it seems that Xbox One owners will get to enjoy Andromeda before players on any other platform. This information was discovered thanks to a screenshot that showed Mass Effect 4 as part of the EA Access program. There was also a strip across the game thumbnail saying “soonm”. Needless to say, this made Xbox players go nuts while others weren’t too happy to hear the news.
That being said, that doesn’t mean Xbox One is the only platform that will offer the new Mass Effect. Good news comes from our PC scouts, as it seems that pre-orders for the game’s PC version have already started to roll out. A CD key retailer has put ME4 up for pre-order for around $41 while the game’s launch price will be around $60. Apparently, people that want to pre-order only have until the 31st of March to do so.
