BioWare has released a free trial for Mass Effect: Andromeda that all PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players can download and enjoy.
Mass Effect: Andromeda, which launched on March 21, was available several days earlier for EA Access and Origin Access subscribers through a 10-hour trial. This is the same trial that is now available to all players to give them a glimpse of what the latest installment in the Mass Effect franchise offers.
'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Free Trial: Here Are The Details
Similar to the original trial, players will be able to carry over all the progress that they make if they go ahead and purchase the full game.
Players can spend the 10 hours offered by the Mass Effect: Andromeda free trial any way they want between the single-player and multiplayer modes. However, the Mass Effect: Andromeda campaign is only limited to the first planet, which players can complete in about an hour, while the multiplayer mode has no limitations.
The re-launch of the Mass Effect: Andromeda free trial will not allow EA Access and Origin Access subscribers to reset their time though, if they already previously downloaded the trial. The hours that they spent in the original trial will be deducted from the 10 hours that the new trial will offer.
Is The 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Free Trial Worth Downloading?
Most gamers who have not yet purchased or tried Mass Effect: Andromeda will have heard the many points of criticism made against the space RPG.
There were many Mass Effect: Andromeda glitches and bugs upon launch, forcing BioWare to rush the release of updates to fix the game. Despite the fixes, the general consensus is that the game failed to live up to its lofty expectations, as there remain a long list of issues mostly related to its story.
The new Mass Effect: Andromeda free trial, however, offers a fresh take on the game without most of the problems that were present during its launch. This means that new players will not be met with the same frustration that besieged those who picked up Mass Effect: Andromeda right as it launched, offering an experience that might actually be enjoyable for some.
Aside from the downloading time, there really is nothing to lose if new players would like to give Mass Effect: Andromeda a try. You might even get to enjoy what is likely the last Mass Effect game for a while.
