Mass Effect Andromeda has a new cinematic trailer, and this one focuses on some new faces. The Pathfinder team will be supporting and saving Ryder as they explore the galaxy for a suitable planet to colonize. Coming with Ryder from the Ark Hyperion, Liam is a security specialist, and Cora has trained with Asari matriarchs.
The rest of the crew were already at the Nexus. The Krogan in the trailer is named Drack, and, like all Krogans, he knows which end of the blaster to point at the enemy. He can probably just beat someone to death with the blaster if it comes to it. You will have a new Salarian pilot named Kallo Jath, and he helped build the Tempest. Rounding out the last two, Vetra may not want to go any further in the galaxy, and Peebee loves alien civilizations.
For new aliens, the trailer also briefly shows us the Archon, Andromeda’s new neighborhood bully. We look forward to showing him what can happen when our group of alien super friends works together.
If a cross between a squid’s head and a hairless cat’s face with an electrical version of Mr. Peanut’s monocle makes you a little hot under the collar, there is also a quick view of the Angara race, and they might be available for a little interstellar romance. If nothing else, you can add them to your erotic fan fiction.
We are less than two months away from the release of one of the most anticipated games of the year. After the last Mass Effect trilogy, many gamers are hoping this will be the game that sets the franchise back on track. Why not? We have seen at least one recent game make a huge leap back to its roots with amazing results.
Prepare to blast off with Mass Effect Andromeda on March 21st in North America and March 23rd in Europe.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
