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):

Lee is a lead producer at BioWare Edmonton. He worked on 2014's acclaimed RPG Dragon Age Inquisition and is now part of the team that's making a brand new IP.

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.

Andromeda launches in fall 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A new teaser trailer was released in November.
