Mass Effect fans and players probably know about the book titled The Art Of Mass Effect: Andromeda that is supposed to come out at the same time as the next installment of Mass Effect named pretty much the same Mass Effect Andromeda. Now thanks to Amazon who unintentionally gave one piece of info, we managed to deduce the other which will be appealing to a lot of gamers and ME franchise fans.
BioWare, if you may or may not know, has prepared a comic book that is supposed to accompany the RPG game Mass Effect Andromeda whose release date was unknown until now. Since the books, or in this case, comic books are Amazon’s thing, they have announced that the “The Art Of Mass Effect: Andromeda” is going on sale starting March 21st, 2017, which unintentionally gave out the release date of the game itself. BioWare, on the other hand, is keeping its mouth shut and aren’t commenting on anything at all. If you ask yourself how come, well let me explain?!
The Art Of Mass Effect: Andromeda comic book is supposed to host a lot of stories that game developers have created, but couldn’t find a place in the actual game for them. Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Creative Director Mac Walters explained that the comic book is supposed to aid gamers in better understanding the reasons behind why some characters are the way they are. It is, I guess, going to be something like an “add-on pack” that is going to fill up some gaps in the story or characters, but this time you will have to read it instead of playing it.
What is another novelty from BioWare is customizable characters, something that all of us expected and waited for a long time. This is going to allow some gamer creative freedom when it comes to in-game characters and paired with the comic book – the sky is the limit. Another piece of good news is that according to Gaming Bolt, game is in its QA stage which is backed by one of the BioWare’s developers Tweet –
Another bug bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another twenty-one bite the dust

If this is really true than March 21st, 2017 as a release date seems very certain and makes Amazon pretty right. Hopefully, BioWare won’t rush or postpone the game due to Amazons accident reveal. Fingers crossed everything goes as planned.
