The upcoming Mass Effect could feature heavy colonialism themes.
Although we still know next to nothing about the story and general themes of Mass Effect: Andromeda, the prospect of it being set in an entirely new galaxy with a new hero is incredibly exciting.
Today, screenshots of a survey EA is sending out to users made their online. The survey, uncovered by NeoGAF, explains what it calls “a possible future” for the series.
The first question gives a brief synopsis of the game, before asking the respondent whether or not they’d be interested in playing that game. This synopsis contains a decent bit of info that sheds more light on the game’s story.
According to the survey, the human race is fighting to establish a new home in the galaxy, but they’re being opposed by an indigenous race, bent on stopping them. It describes Andromeda as having a “planet-dense, seamless open-world”, where your character will lead a group of military-trained explores and have “deep” progression and customisation systems.
Publisher surveys usually end up referencing actual information, as a way of finding out how to best target audiences in marketing. With that said, it’s best to take the content with a grain of salt until BioWare officially reveals more details.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is expected to release in early 2017. An E3 reveal is more than likely.
