New Mass Effect: Andromeda cinematic trailer shows humanity's many struggles

Humanity is going to have it tough in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

EA and BioWare have released the official cinematic reveal trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda.

The cinematic reveal trailer shows humanity’s attempt to journey to Andromeda doesn’t go according to plan. “We slept for hundreds of years,” the voiceover in the trailer tells us. “...dreaming of a new home. But when we finally awoke, our dreams of peace were shattered.”

The trailer then shows us a number of visuals from Mass Effect: Andromeda, including unique locations, combat, new characters, and some vague story elements that give us a taste at what kind of conflicts we should expect in the game.

Today's trailer comes just a few hours after retailers revealed new information for Mass Effect: Andromeda, which includes its story elements and new features such as a new weapon and Biotics skill tree.

      Calling it now: this is going to be like Star Ocean, where you spend 90% of the game on a single planet. There's little/no roaming around space; you're exploring one planet.

      That's not like the old games, sure, but that's the sense I'm getting here.

        the trailer certainly felt very localized

        it's not like each planet was a wholly realized and full world anyway

          no but exploring many diverse worlds in an open ended fashion was a pretty foundational piece of the series from the initial pitch

            how are a desert planet + forest planet + urban planet + ice planet +ocean planet any different from one big planet, with deserts, forests, cities, and glaciers/ice caps?

              if they're similar I'd say they did a pretty poor job designing or executing on a diverse galaxy. I think the early entries did a decent job in places of creating different worlds that were diverse enough to feel odd if this was just another part of the same planet. Things like Krogans as a result of their planet's gravity and what happened to their planet for example.
