Gear up for Mass Effect: Andromeda with its epic launch trailer

After what has no doubt been an agonizing wait for fans of the franchise, Mass Effect: Andromeda is almost here. If you're eager to start planet hopping for yourself, you can now stoke that hype even further by checking out the game's newly released launch trailer. Give it a watch below:

If you haven't been following the story so far, Andromeda follows on the heels of the original trilogy as you wake up from a 600-year trip to find a habitable planet to settle. Of course, things don't look to be going as smoothly as anticipated, and that's where your story as Ryder, the Pathfinder, begins.

In any case, Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to launch on March 21, and we'll learn much more about the game's mysteries then. For now, you can go ahead and pre-order the game if you want to dive in right away at launch.
