After a curiously quiet marketing campaign, the next in BioWare’s spacebound RPG series is at last in near-Earth orbit. One potential explanation for the relative silence around Andromeda is that this is a very difficult game: where do you go after Mass
Effect 3, whose ending seemed so final, and which sparked such furore from its so-called fans? The answer is a new galaxy (the titular Andromeda), a new pair of protagonists (siblings Scott and Sara Ryder), and a more analogue style of dialogue response. That aside, it’s largely business as usual, though we don’t blame BioWare for seeing avoiding more death threats as its priority.
