Now, journey to a new galaxy with Dark Horse’s The Art of Mass Effect Andromeda- featuring never-before-seen art of the hotly anticipated game’s characters, arsenal, locations, vehicles, and more!

“Dark Horse will release The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda simultaneously with the game!
“Exclusive never before seen concept art from the making of Mass Effect Andromeda!
“The comprehensive companion to the wildly anticipated Mass Effect Andromeda!”
Thus far EA has only really committed to a Q1 2017 release, with more info expected on Mass Effect Day (November 7).
Releasing towards the end of March 2017 would give the space RPG a bit of breathing room following the March 3 release of Horizon Zero Dawn, and the March 7 release of Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
The first gameplay from Andromeda was revealed last month during the announcement of the PS4 Pro.
