New Mass Effect: Andromeda Multiplayer screenshots revealed on social media
Take a look at character selection and customization.
While we've had several helpings of Mass Effect: Andromeda reveals over the course of the last year, not much of it (if any) has focused on the game's multiplayer mode. It looked like that was going to change with the previously announced Multiplayer Beta, but now that it has been canned, BioWare is going to have to find alternative means of informing the public on the mode's inner workings.
Enter Twitter, where BioWare producer Fernando Melo posted a series of screenshots showing off the game's character selection and customization screens.
Here are those tweets:
Meanwhile, we'll get some more MP info out - let's get the ball rolling... see you all soon in Andromeda! 4/4 pic.twitter.com/FuhGpuat9f— Fernando Melo (@DiscoBabaloo) March 2, 2017

DualShockers confirmed with Melo that female characters will be playable with every race and that you will not be able to customize the faces of any of the characters; only their armor. Andromeda will also borrow elements from its predecessor, Mass Effect 3 in that the multiplayer mode will include packs that unlock items which will be granted as you level up. These packs can either be earned through playing the game or purchased with real-world money.
It was also revealed that XP is earned through a single pool of points that each player contributes to, which is then given in full to every player in the match.
Mass Effect: Andromeda's Multiplayer Mode will still be shown off at PAX East 2017 later this month in Boston, so if you're going to be at the show, stop by the Mass Effect or Microsoft booth and give them game a whirl. BioWare also released the latest entry in their video series, this time showing off planet exploration, outposts, crafting and more.
