Mass Effect Andromeda Main Characters Are Siblings

Last week we got word of the latest details for the upcoming Mass Effect title, Mass Effect Andromeda. The update from last week’s Playstation Access shows gameplay videos and this time you are shown a male character on screen.

This is different compared to what was shown last E3 where the demo shows that you are in control of a female character.

In the IGN post last week, it was revealed by BioWare creative director Mac Walters that the characters, are siblings. And in-game you will be playing either of the two Ryders.

They both exist in the game world at the same time. If you’re playing as the female Ryder, your brother is out there somewhere in the universe.

And it seems Andromeda is something of a family affair, given another tidbit Walters had for the fans:

The character we saw two E3s ago, the N7, is actually your father. So we have got the full Ryder family revealed. We’ll do names and things in the future.

Here’s the official gameplay video:

More details about the game will be revealed on N7 Day or November 7.
