If you were hoping to play Mass Effect Andromeda with a localization in Arabic Language, it won’t happen, at least at launch. BioWare General Manager Aaryn Flynn clarified this today on Twitter.

Yet, not all hope is lost for fans in the Middle East, as Flynn also hinted that BioWare might look into the addition of the language with a future patch.

Flynn also mentioned that it was “eye-opening” to receive many requests from the fans, realizing that so many would like an Arabic localization.

In less localized news, Flynn also confirmed that the game will support HDR on both Xbox One S and both PS4 models. On the other hand, he didn’t have a firm answer on which version of HDR will be supported on PC.

If you want to enjoy some spiffy Mass Effect Andromeda footage, you can watch the latest gameplay trailer from CES, showing combat against the new Remnant enemies and the dynamic profile feature that lets you switch “class” on the fly. BioWare also recently released a hilarious video introducing the voice actors of protagonists Scott and Sarah Ryder.

Mass Effect Andromeda‘s release dates were also recently announced days ago. The game will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 21st in North America, while European gamers will have to wait until March 23rd.
