The up and coming game Mass Effect Andromeda is not an open-world. Many trailers of the game has led the gamers to believe that it is such. The game is an action, role-playing game, however, not an Open-World.
In a recent interview with Official Xbox Magazine, the game’s producer Michael Gamble explained that the game is actually an “exploration-based“ game and it only has huge sections to explore but is not an open-world.
“You still have the concept of tight story deliverance and all the great things you come to expect with Mass Effect…The layer on top of that is a layer of exploration. Sometimes that happens in open spaces, but not always. You can cruise around some of these planets in the homeland, but it is not the traditional sandbox-type game.” said Gamble.
The game will definitely give its players the freedom to explore the huge environments that the game offers however not in the typical sense that an open-world game has.
Mass Effect Andromeda is launching by March 21 (US) and March 23 (UK), available to be played on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Also, watch out for a multi-beta player test to be announced very soon!
