Mass Effect: Andromeda Gets a Compelling Launch Trailer

Seriously, watch the trailer and tell me you don’t get goosebumps.

Mass Effect: Andromeda’s March 21 launch date is nearly upon us, making this the perfect time for BioWare to drop the game’s official launch trailer, and boy is it a doozy.

The nearly two-minute-long trailer is made up entirely of in-game footage pulled from Andromeda’s various cinematics, coming together into a cohesive preview which outlines the major beats of the game’s story.

The footage itself is exciting enough, but the trailer is also set to the score of Rag’n’Bone Man’s stirring song “Human,” ensuring that the trailer will speak to any and all fans of cinematic storytelling (something which BioWare knows a thing or two about).

Watching the trailer makes waiting for Mass Effect: Andromeda all the harder, but fortunately you can distract yourself by making sure your PC is good enough to run the game (if you’re planning on getting the PC version that is). In addition to PC, Mass Effect: Andromeda will also be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
