Mass Effect: Andromeda is less than a month away and news continues to pour in for the upcoming RPG Action game. Earlier this week on twitter, producer Fernando Melo posted multiple pictures relevant to the game’s Multiplayer mode.
The images show off the character customization screen for the game’s multiplayer mode, including an array of different choices for race, class and armor appearance. The races, while mostly made up of different human variations, are comprised of almost every species in the game.
For the first time, players can also play as a female Krogan, as well as any other female versions of each available race. Customization for armor colors and patterns will be available, but faces for each multiplayer avatar are stock and cannot be changed.
It was also confirmed that Mass Effect: Andromeda will continue the item unlock system that was introduced in Mass Effect 3, unlockable through gameplay or by purchasing in-game currency. In regards to earning experience, matches grant XP based on each player’s contribution to the total experience granted, so the more you contribute, the more you earn.
Another feature being brought over from the previous installment is the multiplayer ability to contribute to the single player. While the effects in Mass Effect 3 felt nominal, the image below shows tangible details on how the missions will help players in the campaign.
This news comes just one week after the cancellation of the Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer Beta, so it seems the company is attempting to make up for the disappointment while fans wait for the game’s release.
Mass Effect Andromeda releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 21st in North America and on March 23rd in Europe. For more information, be sure to check out our coverage so far, and be sure to visit the site for our official review!
