Now Playing: GS News Update: Free Mass Effect: Andromeda Trial Now Available On All Platforms

You can download the Andromeda free trial right now using the links below.

According to DualShockers, the Andromeda free trial is similar to the one that EA/Origin Access members have had access to for months now. It reportedly lets you try the first planet, Eos, with support for both single-player and multiplayer. All progress will carry forward to the full game, should you decide to pick it up after the trial ends.

In other news, a recently released patch for Andromeda added a new difficulty mode for multiplayer and made improvements to facial animations and cinematics. You can see the full patch notes here.

Andromeda launched in March. Though it did not resonate all that strongly with critics, EA CEO Andrew Wilson later said the franchise still has a bright future. A report from Kotaku claimed that EA put the Mass Effect series on hiatus and re-assigned developers to other projects instead of launching into a sequel right away.
