Welcome to Player Attack for 2017! We’re starting the year off with an interstellar bang – an entire episode dedicated to Mass Effect Andromeda.
It’s been five years since BioWare has taken us into space, and that time has been well-spent crafting an amazing, immersive galaxy just waiting to be explored. Jessica had the chance to go hands-on with the game, stepping into the shoes of both Scott and Sara Ryder and interacting with a whole bunch of alien beings.
We also chatted to Fabrice Condominas from BioWare about what’s in store for the Pathfinder when the game launches for Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC from March 21. He tells us what he’s most proud of, explains why it’s taken so long for the game to get here, and gives an insight into a few ideas that were tried and discarded along the way (Mass Effect flight simulator, anyone?)
And we can hardly even remember what life was like before we met Commander Shepard and visited our favourite store on the Citadel, but Jonny and Angelo take a stroll down Memory Lane, reminiscing about what made the first three games so great, nearly 10 years ago.
…plus, of course, we have all the latest in gaming news – this is Player Attack!
Each week, we take the biggest and most interesting news to hit the pages of Player Attack and wrap it all up into a half-hour show. Player Attack is screened Friday nights on Australian subscription TV channel Aurora and in New Zealand on FaceTV. The following Monday, the video is released online as a handy-dandy Player Attack vidcast.
Each episode is available via YouTube and iTunes – and we hear rumours we may be dotted around the place in other online locations. Hit play, subscribe, and let Jessica and the team bring you up to date.
