Mass Effect Andromeda was announced more than a year ago, but the first major Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay showcase doesn?t come out until The Game Awards 2016. The event will take place on December 1 in Los Angeles.
Mass Effect Andromeda Gameplay Takes Center Stage At TGA 2016
Little snippets of the game have been shown in other trailers and teasers such as the PS4 Pro launch video. However, Bioware has confirmed that for the first time, live gameplay footage will be shown. Hype for Mass Effect Andromeda is high following the franchise?s annual N7 day celebration, which revealed a lot of new details about the lore and backstory of the titular new galaxy players will be exploring.
Despite the high expectations, both the game?s developers and the organizers of the awards show are playing it smart by downplaying the showcase. In a recent interview with Polygon, TGA host and producer Geoff Keighley said they want to move away from the flash of previous stage presentations and let the gameplay do the talking. He cited the hype-filled debut of No Man?s Sky on the TGA stage back in 2013 as a major eye opener.
“I have thought about the story of No Man’s Sky a lot,? said Keighley. “Did we create this black hole of hype that the developers couldn’t pull themselves out of? Some of that was authored by me.
“There is a good moral of that story and it’s part of what I’m trying to address this year; to have developers be more transparent about the state of their game.”
