Mass Effect: Andromeda's worldwide release is rapidly approaching, marking the first entry to the series after a five-year hiatus. Following a wide range of changes, Electronic Arts has debuted a new video series highlighting how the game has evolved to suit the modern day.

The first video of the series delves into Mass Effect: Andromeda's combat systems, providing a closer look and offensive options available in-game. Among the biggest additions are new dynamic movement options for greater flexibility, new firearms, and a new progression system via learnable skills.

In Mass Effect: Andromeda, you are the Pathfinder – the ultimate adventurer in a vast, unexplored galaxy on a mission to find a new home for humanity. You'll visit untamed worlds, make lasting relationships with new companions, and face some of the most dangerous challenges the Andromeda galaxy has to offer.

In our first deep-dive gameplay video, we're going to take you through the weapons and skills that you'll become familiar with when the game launches on March 21.

Being the first installation of a multi-part series, we can expect more videos over the coming weeks. In upcoming entries, we can expect to see a breakdown of squads, crafting, multiplayer and more, running up the game's March 21 launch in the United States.
