BioWare and EA today dropped the second official cinematic trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda, which shows even more of the galactic battle players will face during their jaunt across the universe. And we also get to see a bunch of new aliens and characters to boot.

The footage is a cinematic bit so don't expect in-depth looks at anything; it's mainly a story teaser that showcases characters, locales, and highlights the main struggle we'll face throughout the game. In actuality it looks like players are put in a rather dire situation, as their Ark is marooned in deep space and running out of power. Ryder and his crew set off on the new Tempest ship in search of New Earth--and aid to help the ailing Ark and its 20,000 inhabitants. Instead of finding help, however, they find the fearsome Kett.

"We're explorers, not an army. Sure we've been outplayed. The Archon is a master of his game. But we're about to change the rules."
