We still have a vague Spring 2017 release date but we also learned that the gameplay reveal will take place next month at the Game Awards. Maybe then we will learn the actual date.
We also learned about the Ryder family who you will be playing as in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Thanks to Game Informer we know who will be voicing them.
