Mass Effect Andromeda, the newest installment of the series will be released in the U.S on March 21st, 2017. The game will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. According to BioWare, it is going to be a global debut.

The third-person RPG will be the successor to Mass Effect 3, and it will bring the series to an open world environment, as opposed to the previous versions of the game.

Mass Effect Andromeda takes place six centuries after Mass Effect 3. The adventures happen in the Andromeda galaxy, a place that players arrive in after 600 years of cryo-sleep. 

The game begins around Mass Effect 2, but it is rapidly taken into the future when players are sent to Andromeda to find planets to colonize.

Will M.E Andromeda be available for the Nintendo Switch?

In an interview with Dual Shockers, producer  Michael Gamble said they didn’t reject the idea of a possible future version of the game for the upcoming Nintendo console Switch that is going to launch in March as well. 

He said they didn’t originally expect to release that version of the game, but they do not like to close doors like that one.

So far they have not made any other announcements regarding this matter, so we can presume  PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to be the only consoles that will run the game. 

Furthermore, as opposed to the trilogy of Mass Effect, BioWare said they were not planning to release a full trilogy of Andromeda. 

However, BioWare creative director Mac Walters did say something about “future adventures.” So, although players probably won’t see a trilogy, they are likely to enjoy at least a sequel.

What will the possible requirements be to run the game on PC?

The actual system requirements for the game are still unknown. However, some people related to the subject are already making speculations about it. 

According to them, you will need at least a GTX 670 or R9 280 GPU, an Intel i5 or Phenom II AMD processor and 8GB of system memory.
