Mass Effect: Andromeda

One might also wonder why this game is not called Mass Effect 4. It is due to the fact that the story of commander shepherd – the face & gender swapping hero, is over. The Mass Effect trilogy ended with the last part and is not going to be continued with a fourth installment rather it is becoming the basis for star wars sort of a game. The developer BioWare has ensure that while Andromeda continues to be played over and over it is not going to a story-sense sequel of Mass Effect 3.

Story Line

In real life Andromeda is a galaxy – just like many others that is made up of approximately a trillion stars – set only a 2.5 million light year away from our own galaxy – the Milky Way. Rumors suggests that we will be crossing the helium cluster – a cluster of star systems almost a three times’ the Mass Effect 3’s galaxy map. But one might question – why are we here? It is because of the BioWeb clothing that helps us sustain the hostile conditions prevalent there. The developer recently posted on twitter photo with the words “A.R.K.C.O.N – PATHFINDER INITIATIVE”. This very conveniently fits in the rumor that was leaked about the game being a pathfinder mission in which the players would be given the responsibility of searching for a new homeland for humanity and subsequently colonizing it. But this colonizing might not be easy for we will have to compete with other races – probably alien, who equally want to establish colonies in the continuously expanding galaxies. There it would a hot clash of “us versus them” in the aspect of fighting an ardent enemy that is hell bent in causing the human civilization to cease while letting theirs expand eternally.

“This is the story of humanity’s next chapter, and player choices throughout the game will ultimately determine our survival in the Andromeda Galaxy.”


The new hero still doesn’t has an official name but a dog tag was spotted in one of the trailers that had a name – Rider printed on it. Commander Shepherd as we all know as the main hero of Mass Effect was named after the first American man in the outer space.. It has been told that the first trailer didn’t feature the lead character but a “N7” logo was featured on one the character’s suit. Which means that the pathfinder team in the game will be accompanied by at least one member of N7 – an elite human military force. Commander Shepherd was also part of this military elite force.

And as far as the enemy in this game is concerned – not much has been revealed about that . Rumors suggest that we would stumbling against remains of Andromeda – the protheans, the remnants and a malicious race i.e. the KAT.
