Xbox One players can dip into Bioware’s Mass Effect: Andromeda for free this weekend. The trial version of the game allows a prospective player to enjoy 10 hours of the game – and is not limited to single player or multiplayer. Instead, you’re free to play whatever you want or as much as you can. You’re just limited to ten hours. If you’ve downloaded the trial previously, you’ll be able to play up to the balance of ten hours.
Any progress made will be available to transfer over into the main game if you purchase it, and it’s on sale on the Xbox Live Store for less than £30 at the moment as an extra incentive.
Mass Effect: Andromeda was hotly anticipated when it released in March 2017, but a number of serious bugs caused players to nearly melt the internet shortly after launch. Since then, Bioware have released regular patches resolving issues (lots of them related to poor facial animation). However, internal support for the title appears to have vanished as they have recently confirmed that there will be no single-player DLC for the game. This gamer’s going to be downloading the trial anyway, to make his own mind up!
Bioware are now actively developing Anthem – you can read our coverage of the reveal here.
