Two separate Mass Effect developers talked about the scope of the dialogue with PC Gamer at PAX East 2017. Mac Walters, creative director, told the outlet, “When you look at the dialogue options, we’re...

We got our first peek at Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay when BioWare showed it off at Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro event back in September. It looked good, but it was really short. At last night’s Game Awards, we got a longer look that showed off something other than walking around. The nearly-five-minute trailer focuses on combat and exploration, with an emphasis on the latter. Combat in...
