E3 2016: Mass Effect Andromeda’s Main Character Is Named Ryder; Releasing Spring 2017

Recommended Videos

EA has revealed a few more bits of information about Mass Effect Andromeda during the E3 livestream event. We now know the name of the main character and approximately when the game will be out.

The main character’s name will be Ryder. They didn’t say if they have a second name, so it’s possible the main character is called Commander Ryder.

As for the default option, the female character model that we saw at yesterday’s EA Play event will be who you can choose if you are too lazy to alter their look. You can play as a male character too and character customization is obviously back.

An interesting tidbit is that it hints that Ryder will have family members of some kind. We’re not sure how that will factor in the full game, but it might be similar to Fallout 4 where the family played an important role in the story.

Not to mention, Mass Effect Andromeda will be out in Spring 2017. This means it could land between the months of March 2017 until May 2017.
