Speaking with PC Gamer, Mass Effect Andromeda Producer Fabrice Condominas said that BioWare has learned a bit from the recent Dragon Age title and is looking to make side-quests a more meaty part of their follow up to 2012's Mass Effect 3.
'We are approaching the completionist aspect very differently, because we've done and learned a lot from Inquisition," which was a BioWare developed game that suffered a bit for its less than stellar side-missions. "But we've also observed what other games have been doing, like The Witcher,' Condominas added.
Condominas continued, stating that side-quests need to be 'meaningful' in order to impact the player's experience in a worthwhile way.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was excellent at making the busy work feel important, eliminating any type of harsh grind, regularly seen in RPG side-quests.
Mass Effect Andromeda is out on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on March 21 in the US and March 23 in Europe.
