Mass Effect Novels From Titan Books Will Lead-up To Andromeda

Titan Books wrote a Fiction Rights Guide which states the book series would add to the already thick and intertwined story of the "Mass Effect" saga. Mass Effect Andromeda, which is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC by next March, seems to represent just that. "They will focus on key characters and answer the many questions fans have been asking".

There is no word yet on who is writing installments No. 2 and 3, but release dates of March 2017 and September 2017 are listed for them.

While the Mass Effect series has been known for allowing players to choose the gender of their main protagonist, during E3 2016, BioWare chose to give us a look at a female protagonist in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Mass Effect: Andromeda's female hero is likely going to be the "canon" (at least in the trailers) version of Ryder, but however it turns out Andromeda will likely be a very good game, the same as almost all of Bioware's games. Flynn explained, as quoted by EuroGamer: "When we debuted male Shepard back in 2006, 10 years ago, it was a time when we drew inspiration from traditional entertainment marketing So: "We need a iconic main character".

"I think what we're saying right now is that she's the female protagonist but we're not giving her a name yet", Flynn told GR+ writer Dave Roberts in an interview last week. "We need an iconic everything else". Our games let you choose your main character.

"We thought, 'Actually, with the first trilogy we had male as default, we should balance that out as best we can, '" said Flynn. "People want to create their own characters, customize them, and we're embracing that".
