We have a title and a cinematic trailer.


Looks like the rumours were accurate.

Edit: a screencap from the trailer appears to show a human female and krogan companion [2]

edit: little late on this one due to travelling to work, but a blog with details from Bioware [3]

Edit: Some screenshots from the trailer and concept art - most has been seen previously but we have confirmation now its for ME:A [4]

Edit: Looks like we will have to wait until towards the end of the year for further details. [5]

EDIT: I should point out that this is a leaked image, and not direct from Bioware, but based on how accurate the previous reddit leak appears to have been I am linking it here as a matter of interest. If accurate it tells us how Andromeda and the ARKCON fit into the established timeline: [6]

EDIT: Beautiful new trailer for N7 Day [7]

EDIT: a blog with more artwork and the link to sign up for more details. [8]

EDIT: As of 22nd Dec Development Director Chris Wynn, who also worked with Microsoft and Epic as a producer on the Gears of War franchise, has left Bioware for undisclosed reasons and returned to the United States. No successor has currently been announced.

EDIT: Cameron Lee tweeted after playing the first hour of the game. Details here [9]

EDIT: Lead writer Chris Schlerf left the game in February to join Bungie, after only being with Bioware for five months. [10] Also Senior editor Cameron Harris has left not only Bioware but the game industry as a whole as of March. She was editing Storyline and Dialogue for Andromeda before her departure. [11] Finally renders unearthed from a forum post have shown the N7 character from the trailer, originally stated not to be the new protagonist, however labelled in the release as the "Pathfinder". [12]

EDIT: ALLEGEDLY this is our first footage of Andromeda gameplay. [13]
