On Monday, BioWare Edmonton's Cameron Lee--who is not on the game's development team--played through the game's first 60 minutes. As you'd expect, he doesn't give much away--but he nearly did, saying he almost accidentally tweeted a picture of the game's executable.
Here's how he summed up the first hour of Andromeda (via DualShockers):
Just finished playing the first hour of Mass Effect: Andromeda... #DevPerk— Cameron Lee (@Cameron__Lee) January 4, 2016
@SUNMattDykstra Was fun and I got to shoot things in the face :)— Cameron Lee (@Cameron__Lee) January 4, 2016
@BioFanOfficial I'm not familiar enough with the dev work to say, plus I was kind of distracted with our New IP work going on around me :)— Cameron Lee (@Cameron__Lee) January 4, 2016
@Strider_3029 lol and I almost tweeted a picture of the executable too, but that would have given away its old code name ;)— Cameron Lee (@Cameron__Lee) January 5, 2016
In other news about Andromeda, the game's senior development director, Chris Wynn, quit BioWare at the end of 2015. He has not yet announced what he's doing next. After his departure was made public, BioWare confirmed that development on Andromeda was continuing at full pace.
