Mass Effect Latest News
Mass Effect 4, now officially Mass Effect: Andromeda
was finally announced over the E3 convention last month, recently followed by additional news recaps for fans at the San Diego Comic Con this past weekend. BioWare fans, we can expect a holiday 2016 release!
It was confirmed in 2014 that the story WILL NOT feature the iconic Commander Shepard of the first three games, but the demo trailer
DOES feature an N7 operative exploring new planets and terrains. (Plus return of the Mako.) Representations of the character can be seen online complete with questionably plausible female proportions and all.
A signed, sneakpeek concept art litho
of Andromeda was also given away to fans who dropped by the Dark Horse booth at Comic Con. So here's a look at what the new game setting will look like:

In addition to the news releases, Dark Horse and BioWare have also collaborated to release this gorgeous Dragon Age: Inquisition playing card set:
