Tonight, we'll be giving away an Xbox One copy of Mass Effect Andromeda to a lucky follower of our Beam channel LIVE during the stream.

  • We'll use a raffle system to make sure we're giving keys to people who aren't AFK.
  • You must be following the channel to be eligible. The raffle will ignore users who aren't following!
  • We might give out other game keys throughout the event for other Xbox games too!

Mass Effect Andromeda is a sci-fi shooter RPG set in a whole new galaxy. As the Pathfinder, it's your job to locate new habitable planets for tens of thousands of colonists, as you set up a forward base to connect Andromeda with the Milky Way. Taking on a new open world format, Mass Effect Andromeda should prove to be the most expansive of the series, which features more dialogue than Mass Effect 2 and 3 combined. Stay tuned for Monday for our full review ahead of the game's launch on March 21st.

For now, all you need to do is head to our Beam channel at and follow! When the stream begins, jump in on the live chat.

We'll give away a key for Mass Effect Andromeda on the show later today.

We'll also field some questions from the audience, so, even if you already own the game, sign up for Beam and come pester Dan about the Surface Phone!

For those curious, we're aiming for a 90-minute air time, but honestly, we have no idea how long it will go. So grab a drink and join in on the fun to find out!
