Mass Effect without Shepard? Be “open minded,” says Andromeda director

Mass Effect: Andromeda might not include Commander Shepard, but players should be prepared to give it a fair crack.


The development director of Mass Effect: Andromeda has asked fans to be open minded about the fourth game in the series, which won’t feature Commander Shepard as the lead character.

Andromeda was confirmed at E3 this year. It takes place long after Shepard’s time – in fact, it’s not likely to feature any of the original trilogy’s cast.

Andromeda takes place some time after the first three Mass Effect games, although the dev team hasn’t been clear on details, and isn’t likely to be just yet..

Let’s remind ourselves why we got excited for Mass Effect: Andromeda back in June:
