Bioware and EA released the first gameplay video for Mass Effect: Andromeda that details the new combat and skills upgrade system. It gives a look into how you augment your weapons, as well as detailing the three main types of skills in Combat, Tech and Biotics.
Combat skills are your main increased damage and accuracy while also allowing you to use things like grenades and mines. Tech skills add abilities like Cryo-Beam and a flame thrower to your weapons as well as an automated turret among others. Biotics allow you to pull and throw your enemies across the battlefield while also using them as a shield. You can switch into any build at any time during the game, so well rounded approaches are often helpful.
Just as in most games, yellow barred enemies are armored while blue have shields. Enemy shields can regenerate as well, so be sure to kill them before they do or else you’ll be in for a long battle. You can see the video below, and be sure to let us know what you think before it releases on March 21st on Xbox One.
