Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay video shows how ‘forward stations’ work in the game


Mass Effect Andromeda is now only a couple of weeks away, and Canadian developer Bioware has been showing gamers what to expect from this latest Mass Effect game with a series of gameplay videos covering topics such as weapons and skills, for instance.

The latest gameplay video in the series focuses on exploration and discovery, revealing that players will be able to discover more than 100 planets in the game, although only a handful can actually be landed on and explored, though.

But once players land on one of the game’s worlds the fun begins, as each planet features a big area to explore, quests to take on and characters to meet. Also interesting is how “forward stations” work in the game. These can be called down on suitable spots and act as fast travel points, allowing players to change their weapon loadout and also call the Nomad if it is destroyed or you manage to lose it on your adventures…

The Nomad itself also features in this video, the all-terrain vehicle that can be used to explore alien worlds throughout the game (which is surely safer than doing so on foot taking into account the harsh weather conditions that exist on some of these planets, something that’s pointed out in the video).

Judging by this preview video, it looks like planets will be a ton of fun to explore in this latest Mass Effect game, and that this will be an epic RPG worthy of players’ time, although we’ll know for sure whether this will be another great Bioware game when Andromeda hits shelves later this month.

Note: Mass Effect Andromeda will be released on March 21, 2017 in North America, and March 23 in the rest of the world. Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
