No Season Pass, Pre-Load Date Revealed, Framerate Hints

No Season Pass, Pre-Load Date Revealed, Framerate Hints -

It seems that the Mass Effect: Andromeda team was busy over the weekend with a trio of interesting tidbits that include first information about framerates, when pre-loading of the game will take place and information about whether or not a season pass will be available.

According to the official Mass Effect Twitter revealed that Andromeda will support Nvidia Ansel, HDR and Facebook Live broadcasting. Aaryn Flynn told NeoGAAF that MEA will run at 1080p on PlayStation 4 and 900p on XBox One. With PlayStation 4 Pro support, it will run around 1800p.

Last I checked, we were like other Frostbite games on PS4 and XBox One - 1080p and 900p respectively. All are at 30 fps. PC has uncapped framerate. I think we've even gotten over the 30 fps cap in cutscenes, but I'll double-check in the next couple of weeks.

The North American and European preload will be available on March 17, 2017, with the game to be released in NA on March 21st, though Origin users will be able to play beginning on March 20th. EU release is scheduled for March 23rd.

Lastly, Aaryn Flynn confirmed that Mass Effect: Andromeda will not have a Season Pass option and that Bioware is not ready to speak about paid DLC coming to the game at a later date.
