Mass Effect Andromeda's first gameplay footage explores a vast alien vault

Developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts have released the first gameplay footage for Mass Effect Andromeda, the next game in the long-running sci-fi RPG series. While the footage was recorded using the PlayStation 4 Pro, the game is also coming to the Xbox One and Xbox One S as well.

The brief gameplay clip, as posted on the Mass Effect YouTube channel, shows the game's main character Ryder exploring a vast alien-made vault, tackling some jumping puzzle elements with his jet pack along the way. The gameplay footage then turns into an in-engine cut scene where we see that the vault is going to be a very dangerous place.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will support HDR lighting, which is available for owners of the recent Xbox One S console. We would assume that the 4K resolution features in the trailer will be made available on Microsoft's next Xbox console, code-named Scorpio, when it is released sometime in 2017. More info on the game is scheduled to be revealed on November 7, and the game itself will be released sometime in early 2017.
