Here's When Mass Effect: Andromeda PC Pre-Loading Apparently Begins

Pre-loading reportedly starts on St. Patrick's Day.


Mass Effect: Andromeda will be available to preload on PC via EA's Origin service beginning on March 17, apparently. TheOuterHaven reports that when you preorder Andromeda on Origin, a page pops up that shows the game will become available to preoload starting at 1 PM ET that day.

This is not yet officially confirmed by EA/BioWare, but we'll report back with more information as it becomes available.

In other news about the PC version of Andromeda, BioWare GM Aaryn Flynn recently said the company may announce the spacefaring RPG's system requirements sometime in February.

Pre-loading details for Andromeda's PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have not yet been announced.

In other news, EA Access members on Xbox One will be able to play Andromeda a few days ahead of Andromeda's launch on March 21. It's also been confirmed that Andromeda will support HDR on all platforms and won't have a Season Pass.
