Mass Effect 4 has an official name and release window. Mass Effect: Andromeda, announced during EA’s E3 press conference, has been announced for a Holiday 2016. It will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Here's the official announcement trailer, revealed during EA's E3



The reveal trailer showcases an N7-armored soldier navigating a galaxy map, readying their weapon, and heading to a planet’s surface to fight and drive the series’ notorious Mako vehicle. Much of this reveal aligns with the recent survey leaks, which suggested the next Mass Effect would take place in the Andromeda galaxy.

Here's the official press release post from BioWare about this new Mass Effect:

When we wrapped up the original Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect 3: Citadel in early 2013, planning and design on Mass Effect: Andromeda was already well underway. We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game.

While we aren’t ready to go into too many details just yet, as you saw in the trailer and can tell by the name, this game is very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. You will play a human, male or female, though that’s actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). You’ll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako you saw. And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with.

We built this trailer in Frostbite™, our game engine, and it represents our visual target for the final game. We are thrilled by what we’ve already been able to achieve in bringing Mass Effect to Frostbite and by putting our entire focus on PC and current gen consoles. With the time remaining in development, we’re excited about the possibility to push things even more.

Said Yanick Roy, Studio Director at BioWare Montréal.

The main character’s race remains unknown, so whether this is another human-centric story or not remains to be seen. Mass Effect: Andromeda is in development at BioWare Montreal, which has been revealing details for Andromeda for years.

"I definitely wouldn't call Andromeda an open-world game," Gamble said. "We like to use the term 'exploration-based game'. You still have the concept of tight story deliverance and all the great things you come to expect with Mass Effect. The layer on top of that is a layer of exploration. Sometimes that happens in open spaces, but not always. You can cruise around some of these planets in the Nomad, but it's not the traditional sandbox-type game."

The random news letters slander everyone. So it seems it's gonna be the usual. That's good. Some lad made me think it was gonna be all action and no exploration:(

The scope is high , the new galaxy was a must but in real life we barely see the shape of Andromeda the galaxy
I hope the game won't be washed out stereotypical science fiction concepts , with little originality on a bias to cinematic capture type of gameplay

If this Mass Effect would go on the way of KOTOR it would be better imo
Will wait for it anyhow

We've got some big releases due in the coming months of 2015 which makes this feel a long way off but it's definitely high on my 2016 hit list. Number 1 at the moment
