Mystery Of Mass Effect: Andromeda As The Open-World Game Resolved
Last year it wasn’t sure if Mass Effect: Andromeda will be an open-world game or not but the answer to that question is answered today by the producer of the game. The answer is no, it is not an open-world game, producer Michael Gamble said in a new interview with Official Xbox Magazine.
“I definitely wouldn’t call Andromeda an open-world game,” Gamble said, as relayed by GamesRadar. “We like to use the term ‘exploration-based game.’ You still have the concept of tight story deliverance and all the great things you come to expect with Mass Effect.”
Andromeda will follow in the footsteps of the past Mass Effect games as it relates to structure.
“The layer on top of that is a layer of exploration,” Gamble said. “Sometimes that happens in open spaces, but not always. You can cruise around some of these planets in the Nomad, but it’s not the traditional sandbox-type game.”
The Nomad is the vehicle you’ll drive in Andromeda, replacing the Mako from the original trilogy.
Andromeda launches on March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
