Aaron Flynn of Bioware, creators of the acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy, took EA Play's stage today for a look at the latest entry to the Mass Effect series, Andromeda.

Mass Effect is already a well-beloved series, but this fourth instalment, built on the Frostbite engine, is promised to deliver the best audio and visual quality seen in Mass Effect yet. Featuring an entirely new cast, planets, species and technologies, Mass Effect Andromeda is set in unknown lands, where human-kind has left the Milky Way in search of a new home. Having built upon what made Mass Effect so unique, Bioware ramped up the imagination and gameplay, giving players 'more freedom than they've ever had'.

What this means in real terms remains to be seen, but personally, I'm just about ready to welcome a new commander to the fold.
