Powered by Frostbite Engine BioWare debuted an extended look at Mass Effect: Andromeda today during the Electronic Arts' E3 press conference in a short video featuring new gameplay and input from members of the team. BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn talked briefly about Andromeda, which he called a new adventure taking place in "a galaxy where you are the alien. " Players will be part of an "ambitious expedition" to the Andromeda galaxy. "At the heart of Mass Effect: Andromeda is a question: How far will we go? " Flynn said. "…Everything is new. " In the video, which you can watch above, the narrator explains that the team is "going further than ever before to" to build a new home for humanity.

BioWare has said previously that Andromeda will take place "far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. " The game will introduce an online component, as well as new species and alien races. Halo 4 writer Chris Schlerf was attached to the project as lead writer, but left the company earlier this year to join Destiny developer Bungie. Mass Effect: Andromeda was unveiled at E3 2015 and originally slated for launch this holiday. The game has since been pushed back to an early 2017 release. You can watch Flynn's full speech on Andromeda below.
