By the way, all the content you see in the trailer was captured in-engine. I know, it's hard to believe, but it's true! #MEAndromeda

Aaryn Flynn, BioWare Canada General Manager, wrote about the game on the BioWare Blog stating, "We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game."
Flynn confirmed that the game has been created on the Frostbite 3 engine.
Mass Effect Andromeda will be released in holiday 2016.
