Briefing Video Introduces Mass Effect: Andromeda's Arks And Nexus

Ian Boudreau

EA and BioWare released a briefing video today that provides a few details about Mass Effect: Andromeda's intergalactic colony ships and the game's new version of The Citadel, known as the Nexus. Arks, including Ark Hyperion, are the ships that each carry 20,000 citizens across the 2. 5 million light years between the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies over the course of several centuries. Once they've arrived, they'll assemble the Nexus, which the video describes as a streamlined version of the Milky Way's Citadel station. The Nexus will function as a center of government and diplomacy, a living area, as well as a base of operations for the Pathfinders, who act as pioneers for new homeworlds.
