The fourth part of the Mass Effect Andomeda official gameplay series is all about the multiplayer.

Mass Effect Andromeda‘s multiplayer mode for four-player co-op gets the light shone on it in Bioware’s latest video.

If you’re wondering what’s in store at launch, we’re looking at 25 character kits, the major alien races, and over 40 unique weapons using the different alien technologies from the single-player campaign.

With no class restrictions, and the ability to mod weapons and use boosters, you can go bonkers and have yourself a whale of a time.

The five maps include Firebase Zero, an outpost built into an asteroid; Firebase Icebreaker, a fuelling station on an icy planet; Firebase Magma, a foundry on a river of lava; Firebase Derelict, in an abandoned kett ship; and Firebase Sandstorm, in the middle of a desert.

The video is only five minutes long and is brimming with juicy tidbits on the multiplayer, and you can get a good look at the gameplay too.

Mass Effect Andromeda is out March 21 in North America and March 23 in Europe on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
