Mass Effect: Andromeda received a fair amount of criticism when it launched back in March this year. Most of the criticism was leveled at its lack of polish and poor writing, but this has been patched up quite a bit, and it really is not a bad game now. And Bioware wants to show people this, by giving the game a free trial on all available platforms.
The free trial will be similar to the Early Access that was available to EA Access and Origin Access users earlier this year, which was technically not free since it’s a paid-for service. You’ll be able to play the first 10 hours of the game, play multiplayer and have access to the first planet, Eos. All progress will also be carried over should you decide to go on and purchase the game. This is also the first time that PS4 players have access to such a trial of the game.
Andromeda is not a bad game, it’s not perfect, and it doesn’t come close to it’s predecessors, but considering all the controversy that went with it’s development, they ended up making a decent space shooter that has a bit of charm.
