In another round of public awareness, BioWare took to social media this weekend to update everyone over the ongoing development of Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Producer Michael Gamble and lead designer Ian Frazier took turns posting screen-caps of Mass Effect: Andromeda as it shows on the home screens of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The accompanying captions teased that they would be playing the game on their respective consoles over the weekend.

I’m sorry @GambleMike is such a tease to you xbox gamers. At least we don’t taunt the PS folks like that.

While no similar image was shared for the PC version, Gamble assured that he plays the Windows version of Mass Effect: Andromeda on almost a daily basis. That’s certainly assuring for the PC fans and reiterates BioWare’s promise that there will be no further delays.
In other news, BioWare announced that Mass Effect: Andromeda will release without any Season Pass. It’s possible that BioWare is going with a microtransaction model for its multiplayer module. If that’s the case, majority of items will be available through in-game currency but players will have the option of paying real-world money beforehand to instantly unlock the items for use. As for single-player DLC, that will be released for free.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is scheduled to release on March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. EA and Origin Access members will be given exclusive early access to the game five days before the launch. Similar to previous titles, subscribers will be able to play a maximum of 10 hours before the trial expires.
