God, I hope this game can live up to its predecessors. However, that chance is small since the past series had created a story and an universe so epic that none could possibly be compared with (except for the ME3's ending lul). After the Reaper plot, I can't see anything else to be bigger. Let's hope I'm wrong and they hired some spectacular writers.

So will this have better actual gameplay than most mass effect titles? Because I find Mass Effect's gameplay to be provocativly weird. I found it odd the way they balanced the amount of talky bits with the "gameplay" or whatever you like to call it.

why would a game like this have multiplayer? gaming is widely practiced nowadays, no idiot value a game for its having a multiplayer feature anymore, and they know what they need to get for multiplayer action.

Because ME3 had multiplayer that was successful.

I want this game to be good but I gotta say two things here...

Firstly I'm hoping that its not gonna be essentially DA: inquisition but in space; which might be cool for other people but I didn't enjoy the idea of being the most important person in the game world with all eyes on me with the future of the world at stake yet I'm running around looking for random NPC's son who hasn't returned from fetching a pale of water... or burying someones bones on a hill because someone is too lazy/scared to do it themselves or they're dead...

Y'know what I'm getting at? It's absolutely fine to have quests like that, I mean you're in a big world with many people with different motivations, and you should be having the option take them or not... But ffs write a plot that allows the quests to exist within its context! If ya gonna make a whole bunch of content revolving around menial fetch quests just don't make me the President of the United Andromida alliance.

Secondly, I'm all for information on the next mass effect game but don't go on an interview months before the game is out and say that this game "won't have sequels, the stories arc is created and ends with you a hero." I mean come on! Atleast mass effects ending was a surprise!

@freddo88: "don't make me the President of the United Andromida alliance" LOL love it.

- I agree with you, imagine yourself as NPC and you are in real life someone had approached you and asked you to accompany him/her to save the world, and this person behave with you as your leader/boss with no reason , how would you act?!!

- and for Frostbite engine it isn't that cool as i mentioed in a commeny below.

@PCsama: the premise just really threw me in DA: Inq .. I always got this shitty feeling of breaking character every time I was given a side quest. Like I wanted the exp but it felt stupid completing it given your motives in the game.

Just realized I spelt andromeda wrong o.O

Looks very good I especially like the graphics I'm hoping the choice of creating a character looks as impressive as the male character they displayed on the trailer.

I think my only concern for this game is I hope they don't take the same path with ME2 and 3 I hope the weapon array is very wide and expansive like ME1 keep it like a RPG is meant to be

uahh the same engine of Dragon Age Inquisition it is NOT that cool like the engine CD project Red used to design Witcher 3 the Wild Hunt, even CDPR is a company smaller than EA from staff and money..no matter what can't wait for this game :)

@PCsama: Frostbite is the best looking engine we currently have. Battlefront and Battlefield 1 are prime examples. No other engines look that good.
