"With Mass Effect: Andromeda, our team at BioWare is exploring how far they can take this beloved franchise. Yes, we're building the best of what we all love about Mass Effect - amazing stories, characters and fun third-person shooter combat - and bringing them along with us on the expedition to Andromeda. But we're also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game."

More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience -where you'll go, how you'll get there, and how you'll play.

New Uncharted World's: We're leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we'll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new world's.

The Next Great Mass Effect Experience: Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today's consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We're pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.

"As we've been playing the game at the studio recently, it's showing us that we're taking the game in the right direction. But we also know we need the right amount of time to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be - that's our commitment from all of us to all of you. Because of that, Mass Effect: Andromeda will now ship in early 2017. We can't wait to show you how far we're all going to go. We'll see you at the EA PLAY press conference on June 12, with an update."
