Shepard is long gone. In his/ her place? Meet Pathfinder, the leader of a new group of explorers wholly removed from the old cast. Late last year, senior BioWare Montreal character artist Furio Tedeschi shared high-res images of the male Pathfinder model’s standard N7 armour set online, and while the helmet looks distinctly Quarian-like, the studio’s emphasis on Andromeda being about humanity’s next chapter destroys all hope of alien protagonist options. This is slightly disappointing given the series’ rich diversity of species – alas, for now our Krogan adventures must remain limited to our cosplay. Expect biotics and Omni-Tool enhanced tech talents to return, plus get ready to fulfil Boba Fett fantasies: Pathfinder owns a jetpack, seemingly used for traversal and boost-jumping into ranged melee strikes.
It’s set in a new galaxy
