Mass Effect has always been about exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilisations, and then shooting them with exciting sci fi guns and blue sci fi magic. But Mass Effect Andromeda is a new game, with a whole new combat system. Take a look at the biggest changes to combat in this new Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay.

Unlike Commander Shepard, who couldn’t even jump outside of context prompts, Pathfinder Ryder is much more mobile, thanks to their handy jet pack. It’s not unlimited – but you can use it to do quick boost jumps to pop out of cover or to fall back into a better position, as well as darting left or right to avoid enemy attacks.
In addition to that, taking cover is no longer a case of pressing the appropriate button and snapping into position like someone just turned on a powerful electromagnet.
Now, cover is a lot more fluid, allowing you to take cover behind whatever you can find, move around behind it freely, and still vault over cover to move up the battlefield. Or, if you’re feeling particularly flash, a cool forward rolls. We are always feeling flash.
Other combat novelties in the gameplay above include changes to how cover and classes work, plus new melee weapons beyond the standard-issue Omnitool, such as the mighty Krogan Hammer and deadly Asari Sword.
Mass Effect Andromeda comes out on release date 21 March 2017 (North America) and 23 March 2017 (Europe) on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
