Mark Darrah Calls Mass Effect: Andromeda a 'Deeply Flawed' Game

Mark Darrah Calls Mass Effect: Andromeda a 'Deeply Flawed' Game - Mass Effect: Andromeda News

BioWare has had little to nothing to say about the critical "failure" of Mass Effect Andromeda (though it sits at a respectable 72 rating at Metacritic). However, in a new series of Twitter posts, Anthem & Dragon Age Executive Producer Mark Darrah entertained questions about whether or not Mass Effect Andromeda "got a fair shake".

Ten Years of Mass Effect

Ten Years of Mass Effect - Mass Effect: Andromeda News

Today is N7 Day, the annual celebration of the Mass Effect series. In honor of the 10th anniversary, BioWare has released a moving tribute to the game with interviews with key members of the development team and more. It's an emotional roller coaster, however, given the fact that the series is on an indefinite hiatus after a less-than-stellar reception of Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Next Tie-In Novel Won't Arrive Before Summer 2018, Covers Quarian Ark

Next Tie-In Novel Won't Arrive Before Summer 2018, Covers Quarian Ark - Mass Effect: Andromeda News

The next Mass Effect: Andromeda tie-in novel won't arrive until a year after the game's release and subsequent "placing on ice". The book is called "Annihilation" and deals with the events on the Quarian ark, one of four that left the Milky Way heading for a new life in the Andromeda galaxy. However, as we know from the game, the Quarian ark (also carrying Hanar, Drell, Elcor and Batarian pioneers) never makes it the rendezvous.

'AAA Games at EA Are Dead for the Time-Being' & Microtransactions Are Why

'AAA Games at EA Are Dead for the Time-Being' & Microtransactions Are Why - Mass Effect: Andromeda News

In a new interview at Waypoint (via Eurogamer), former BioWare developer Manveer Heir spills the beans on EA's direction with regard to triple A single-player games. "[T]he linear single-player triple-A game at EA is dead for the time being" according to Heir and the main culprit for that is the microtransaction system. In fact, Heir said that it was not uncommon to see players spend $15,000 on Mass Effect multiplayer packs that could yield gear and other in-game items.

Ian Frazier Moves to Unannounced Project - DLC Death Knell?

Ian Frazier Moves to Unannounced Project - DLC Death Knell? - Mass Effect: Andromeda News

Now former Mass Effect Andromeda Lead Designer Ian Frazier has announced via Twitter that he is now working on an unannounced project at EA Motive. You may recall that EA announced the merger of BioWare Montreal, the studio that developed MEA, with EA Motive. With Frazier's announcement that he is "now on an unannounced project", it becomes even less likely that any DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released. The most recent patch, for example, was multiplayer-specific only.
