Bioware Releases New Exploration and Discovery Gameplay Trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda

Despite the series' sci-fi space theme, players never went far beyond the limits of their galaxy map display.

BioWare has released the third video in its new Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay series. From planets, to moons, to anomalies and starships, where ever you are in Helius you will now be able to see everything that exists outside the ship's main windows in real time.

The video spoke on Mass Effect: Andromeda's inclusion of "over 100 planets", but it looks like the majority of those will be limited to scanning from the exterior, unsurprisingly. Each of the planets you land on will offer unique characters, sidequests and challenges, however. The video shows off just how open these worlds are, and how you'll use the Nomad all-terrain vehicle to traverse them. You can also enhance the Nomad with a series of functional upgrades, created to give you better boosts, better jumps, better handling, and more. There will also be new locations called forward stations, which will act as fast travel points, and allow you to change loadouts or call the Nomad if it gets lost or destroyed. In addition, forward stations also provide resupply and protection from environmental hazards. Exploring, completing objectives, and undertaking story missions will help raise a planet's viability level.

Additionally, your exploration and discoveries nets you Andromeda Viability Points (AVP).

Depending on your actions on Elaaden, you can lead to "increased viability" for the planet as a whole. Attaining certain AVP thresholds makes upgrading the Nexus possible and wakes up more colonists from cryo-sleep.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to release on March 21 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
