The Mass Effect franchise was at the forefront of creating an immersive RPG campaign wherein every one of your decisions greatly affected your play through the campaign. From simply interacting with the various characters in the game, players could create both allies and enemies that ultimately shaped their playthrough.
It looks like the latest Mass Effect title, Mass Effect Andromeda is about to take things to another level. Mass Effect series producer Mike Gamble has revealed that the game’s multiplayer mode will affect the single player story campaign as well.
Shaping the campaign’s playthrough has always been locked away in player’s save files. The new revelation that the multiplayer mode will also impact the game’s campaign storyline is as surprising as it is innovative.
Gamble detailed some info on Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer mode when he spoke with Kotaku Australia. He explained that unlike previous titles, the multiplayer will actually be closely tied to the campaign. He also emphasized that the multiplayer experience of the game will indeed greatly impact a player’s campaign story line.
In addition, Gamble explains that the multiplayer mode will be seamlessly integrated into the campaign. So players should feel that the multiplayer is an extension of the campaign and not another different mode altogether like in most games.
The multiplayer missions was dubbed Strike Team and all takes place in a common setting. The missions take place around a planet called Helios. It’s important to note that Helios plays an important part in the overall story of the campaign. Although Gamble didn’t explain the specific details on how the multiplayer will affect the campaign. However, Helios may just give fans enough info to theorize something plausible.
Although there’s still not a lot of info out on the game yet, things are expected to change soon. Mass Effect: Andromeda is to be released on March 21, 2017. So we might just learn more about Helios and multiplayer mode just before the game’s launch. Stay tuned in with TheBitBag for more Mass Effect: Andromeda news and updates.
