Details of the game's plot and story were also unveiled to fans where it was learned that the title of "Andromeda" stemmed from the Andromeda Initiative, established around the timeline of the second "Mass Effect" game, IGN reported.
The source also stated further that the goal was to find a new settlement by exploring in four "arks," each transporting a different alien race. These arks were said to be headed to the Andromeda Galaxy, in an effort to study the Heleus cluster and the potential locations for them to inhabit on.
Speaking of alien races, it was discussed by Techno Buffalo that the Salarian race ought to be featured more in the upcoming "Mass Effect: Andromeda." It was mentioned that it wasn't until "Mass Effect 2" that fans were able to see the Salarian race being featured the game. Since then, characters like Mordin Solus became popular as fan favorites.
However, it was noted that the Salarian race was placed on a more supporting role for "Mass Effect 3," which seemed to be a bummer since they've already made a big impact in "Mass Effect 2."
As such, it was suggested that the upcoming "Mass Effect: Andromeda" should feature the Salarian race and the complexity that the race's characters could offer to BioWare's latest installment.
