NeoGAF user Taker34 says they obtained the footage--see it here--from a "certain developer who is currently working on Andromeda."

One of the more interesting elements of the footage is a jetpack ability, which lets players jump into the air for a short period of time. You can see this in the animated GIF below.

Gaming super sleuth shinobi602 adds that the footage is from 2014. "It doesn't look like this now," they said.

According to the leaked marketing survey, Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, with the series formula flipped on its head somewhat in terms of story.

"Players will lead the fight for a new home in history territory--where WE are the aliens--opposed by a deadly indigenous race bent on stopping us," reads a line from the reported description.

It goes on:

"Experience the freedom to traverse and explore a planet-dense but seamless open-world galaxy, rich with discovery. Play as the leader of a squad of military-trained explorers in an intense third-person shooter, with deep progression and customization systems. This is the story of humanity's next chapter, and player choices throughout the game will ultimately determine our survival in the Andromeda galaxy."

Just recently, BioWare's Alistair McNally said Andromeda--as well as the company's mysterious new IP--are "looking stunning." Andromeda was originally scheduled to come out this holiday, but has now reportedly been pushed to 2017. It is the fourth installment in the mainline series, leaving Commander Shepard behind.
