We thought we’d just open this one up to speculation. As you’ve probably seen, Mass Effect Andromeda has set a date for “something” to happen on November the 7th (if you haven’t, why not check out our N7 Trailer article on it). But the thing on everyone’s mind is what actually is it that Mass Effect: Andromeda’s going to release on N7 ahead of their Spring 2017 release?

This is why we’re coming to you guys with this quandary, what do you think we’ll see and more importantly, what do you actually want to see?

We know the Game-Debate headquarters have been rife with theories, hopes and dreams. Our resident tech guru, is optimistic. He figures that there’s going to be a big reveal where everything that’s been elusive so far is answered in a grand sweeping gesture of goodwill and we’ll all be brought to tears of joy at the prospect of a whole new galaxy to explore. (May have used artistic license there a bit)

Jon the Joff man S, however, is a believer of doom and gloom. He figures that it could just be a load of nothing and hoo-has; and doubts that it’s really going to be anything other than more teaser-ing. Which isn't that far-fetched really, given their mystique so far.

I (Ed, hey how’s it going?) however kind of see the merit in both perspectives and honestly can’t make my mind up between them, both would work from a PR perspective for instance. I can kinda get Jon’s drift, there’s still a lot of time for more to be revealed and the hype to mount and mount but it’s Chris’s outcome that I’d really like to see.

But the question really is where do you guys stand, who’s perspective do you agree with most? Or even what’s your own perspective (we are highly intelligent primates after all)? Also, what do you think Mass Effect Andromeda’s going to be all about? We know it’s at least 400 years after the first trilogy so anythings possible. Let us know down in the comments!

"we are highly intelligent primates after all"


All my life I've searched for evidence which could support this.

I congratulate you for knowing that Russell won the Nobel Prize for literature in, I think, 1950. However, that's not what he's known for.
He was a philosopher, one of the founders of analytic philosophy and a mathematician. Also one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th Century.
Philosophy was the first science, in case you didn't know.
If people are so effing intelligent, why are there wars all over the world? Even in war, why are there additional war crimes? Why do the rich exploit the poor? Why is the Middle East the ground for a proxy war between the U.S. and Russia?
Did you know that Russell's quote was actually an answer to some of the teachings of Aristotle? Did you know that

Did you know that Aristotle was the world's first biologist? He said that man was a rational animal. As a biologist, Aristotle, who admittedly didn't have much to work with, was mostly wrong.
Did you know that philosophy was the first science? Science and philosophy was the same to the ancient Greeks and the sciences actually grew out of philosophy. Most of the early Greek mathematicians, like Pathagaras, was a philosopher?
Did you know that Russell's quote was also half tongue in cheek?
Judging by your comments, I would guess not.
And, I'll take Bertrand Russell's word over yours any day, son.

I would like to see the galaxy map and how space travel works.

I expect they'll release a longer trailer, maybe not a full trailer, but something showing off a combination of story and gameplay, so a longer teaser, maybe, with more of a sense of when the game takes place and what's going on.

I still haven't beaten Mass Effect 2. I almost finished ME 1 on the 360 once, but alike the 2nd game I got stuck in a mission. Great game nonetheless, love the character relation build-up, the era, RPG, story and lore. Can't wait for Andromeda!

VR has potential, but when have devs ever really utilized true potential? Look at the pc for instance, devs are still holding back in favor of consoles.

VR will also have more tech demos flooding the VR market due to devs not really knowing what they want to do with it. we won't see many real VR games.

I think it's a good thing that smart phones and consoles are taking on VR, it shows vitality. Not sure what you mean, Plenty of games and developers are coming out with VR support. Resident evil, Fallout 4, Minecraft, and even GTA V.

I don't think they'll show anything interesting, then again I am cynical thanks to AAA companies showing games that never turn out the same as what was at E3.

Replaying ME2 right now. Didn't like these games much first time around, specially the Mako sections, but this one's grown on me.
Andromeda looks like a totally diferent kettle of fish. Be interesting to see how Bioware bring it back.
