Mass Effect fans have been patiently waiting for a release date for Bioware. Last week we finally got more information and confirmation that March 21 is the day of all days for Andromeda followers. Hold on tight as more good news is coming for EA Access members with news of early access.
Early Access for EA Access Members
For those of you who do not know what EA Access is, you pay a monthly subscription of $4.99 a month or for a year access of $29.99. You can also cancel your subscription at anytime. This allows you access to many other EA titles. If you are a member of this you can now play Mass Effect Andromeda early. Nothing has been officially announced on how much earlier access member will have it, but we did get this response from the official EA Access Twitter account.
Members get to Play First but we don't have any details just yet. Stay tuned, we'll let you know here when that changes!

Reports are already surfacing that PC gamers will get access to the game four days early. If you preorder the game via the Origins website you will get a pop up notification that says: available for pre-load starting at 1:00 PM ET on March 17. This may mean we can just prime the game and have it ready to go, but EA would still have to allow it be to playable at that time as well. It hasn’t been made clear yet. However, Flynn was said this:
General Manager Aaron Flynn recently revealed that they should be announced “sometime in February.” Following the unveiling of the PC requirements for the game, the developer has promised that multiplayer details will be revealed thereafter.
Maybe this means in February we will start getting information about the multiplayer tech test and early access? Either way, if you are a Mass Effect fan, make sure you have EA Access to get in some early Andromeda action!
