According to PC Gamer, BioWare is releasing more details about its upcoming space adventure game, which include the status of cross-play on the multiplayer side.
Multiplayer is a gaming option that is definitely becoming more common these days. The ability for players to take a game with another gaming console or platform has proved to be incredibly valuable for those players who like a better gaming experience across the platform.
Unfortunately, this kind of gaming flexibility is not going to happen on the latest "Mass Effect" game. On Twitter, BioWare lead designer Ian Frazier and producer Fernando Melo take the front seat to reveal that the latest Mass Effect game will not feature cross-play in any form. The news has caused some frustrations among players.

But before the big release date, BioWare has released first a new Youtube trailer alongside a new briefing video that introduces gamers to the Pathfinder Team. In addition to the Pathfinder, the trailer also revealed the true story behind Alec Ryder, the father to the Mass Effect's two protagonists.
