Mass Effect: Andromeda, the next entry in BioWare's sci-fi RPG series, was revealed at E3 2015. It has been pitched as "very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy."
BioWare previously offered a few vague details on the game: "You will play a human, male or female. You'll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako.
"And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with."
