Mass Effect: Andromeda has been in the works for awhile now and the release date is fast approaching after much waiting, but there are still many details about the game that we really have no idea about. The previous entries in the series had DLC, with some being pretty major story related content, though what will be included in Andromeda is mostly a mystery for now. With season passes being so prevalent these days, you would have thought Mass Effect: Andromeda might be doing just that, but that is not the case.
The release date for Mass Effect: Andromeda was just revealed recently as March 21 in the US, which means we should be getting a blowout of information in the coming weeks and months ahead of that release. Hopefully there won’t be major story DLC as pre-order content again, but the good news is that the game is skipping having a season pass.
This news came courtesy of Bioware GM Aaryn Flynn on Twitter after he was asked if there would be a season pass for Mass Effect: Andromeda. In response, Flynn simply replied with “No.”
After that, the person that asked the original question asked for a little more information, including if they were planning any story DLC and if it would be free, or if they were just going to do free multiplayer DLC instead? Flynn then responded with the playful response that said:
“We’ll talk more about that later :)”
It definitely would be pretty nice for Mass Effect: Andromeda to follow up on the Titanfall 2 model, which happens to also be from EA, in that the future DLC will all be free. This makes the original package all the more valuable, but it still wouldn’t surprise me if we had story DLC release after the fact for a price.
Look for Mass Effect: Andromeda to arrive for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on March 21.
