Joining the likes of other sci-fi titles (Prey, The Surge) BioWare is giving players the chance to play the first 10 hours of Mass Effect: Andromeda game absolutely free. Take note this trial will be available for a limited time only, but at least it’s available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Mass Effect Andromeda trial was previously free to anyone subscribed to Origin Access, a paid subscription service similar to PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold, but this time all that’s required is an Origin account.
BioWare released a trailer in celebration of the timed-trial, with many fans chiming in to request the inclusion of Quarian DLC and more story-focused DLC in general. Earlier this month, Mass Effect: Andromeda was updated with better stability, improved facial animations and a number of fixes for quest-related issues, as well as the addition of Platinum difficulty.
After a tumultuous development cycle, Mass Effect: Andromeda released to polarising reviews. Many players loved it, but just as many seemed to encounter an overabundance of glitches—many of which have been patched via updates. For now, we also know BioWare is working on its E3 announced title Anthem, a futuristic third-person action RPG. So despite the announcement of the free trial, it may still be a while before we see any DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
