New 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Screenshots Show Off New Characters and Environments
Mass Effect: Andromeda is barely more than a month away, and just in case that's not enough to excite you, we've now been given a look at some beautiful screenshots that are sure to whet any gamer's intergalactic wanderlust.

The new shots come courtesy of Twitter user and self-proclaimed Mass Effect junkie @shinobi602, who has revealed two new glimpses at some of the environments that players will get to explore in-game. These screenshots show off a desert world that has appeared in several trailers, as well as a rainforest which we've seen a little less of thus far.

In addition to this, @shinobi602 has also shared some nice close-up images of a variety of new characters set to appear in the game, including Sarah and Alec Ryder (the game's protagonist and her father, respectively), as well as a few classic alien races from the original Mass Effect trilogy.


The level of detail in these character models is phenomenal compared with what we've seen previously in the Mass Effect series, which is understandable considering that it's been five years since the release of Mass Effect 3.

Andromeda sees humanity, alongside various other races from the Milky Way, traveling to a neighboring galaxy in a colonization effort. Where the previous Mass Effect trilogy was built around intergalactic war, this time around the game focuses on exploration and adventure. The game promises a sandbox experience where players can explore alien worlds, set up bases, and build communities as they go.

While it remains to be seen how well this game lives up to the promise of a truly open adventure, BioWare's previous well-built, story-driven games have set a solid precedent, so there's every reason for fans of their work to get excited as we approach the release of a brand new chapter in Mass Effect history.
