Mass Effect: Andromeda will have “meaningful sidequests,” according to BioWare. It seems BioWare has been learning from other games as well as listening to the feedback on their own titles and is looking to learn from it.
Producer Fabrice Condominas told PC Gamer (via DualShockers) that BioWare heard the feedback from Dragon Age: Inquisition regarding its sidequests and wants to improve them for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Players mentioned that side quests in Dragon Age: Inquisition felt insignificant. While it is still unclear exactly how the side missions in Mass Effect: Andromeda will handle, Condominas stressed that BioWare has learned from Inquisition.
“We are approaching the completionist aspect very differently, because we’ve done and learned a lot from Inquisition,” he said. “But we’ve also observed what other games have been doing, like The Witcher. And it was very important for us that the quantity of scope doesn’t downgrade the quality of whatever you’re are doing there.”
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to launch March 21st for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
