Just saw the Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer trailer. Looks promising. As I'm sure you all know, I played the shit out of Mass Effect 3's multiplayer (over 2000 hours), and while it was simple, in comparison to say Battlefield or CoD, it had a certain amount of variety in weapons and characters that made it very replayable. It looks like they've applied the same formula to Andromeda. 4 player co-op, shared XP, 10 waves of increasingly difficult battles against enemies, extra objectives on certain waves. Also 25 characters, 5 maps and all the base weapons on launch (which appear to be the majority of weapons in Mass Effect 3...so possibly 40+ guns).
Once I get my hands on the demo tomorrow, I'll play the shit out of the MP and give further impressions.
I was at PAX East on Saturday and my friends wanted to check out the Mass Effect stuff.
I just told them no. Are any of us really going to not buy Mass Effect? We're all buying Mass Effect. It doesn't matter if we look at it or play it beforehand or get a Mass Effect pin: we're all going to buy Mass Effect. Let's spend some time on these indies that we won't hear about otherwise.
Anyway we checked out Mass Effect.
Also ICEY looks pretty cool.
