Mass Effect Andromeda's character creator lets you deeply customize your Ryder siblings, but that's not all.

While it includes some pretty prominent third person shooter elements. Mass Effect Andromeda is primarily an RPG, which means that it comes with a deep character creation suite.

In the video below, you can check out how the character creation works, as we create our Ryder and his sister.

In the screenshots at the bottom of the post, you can also see how the Ryder we created appears in game, both in cutscenes and in gameplay.

We also get to enjoy one of the more interesting features of the game. Alec Ryder, our character’s father, will reverse-inherit traits from the Ryder siblings, actually looking like they are related.

I gotta say, while the resemblance is definitely strong, dad Ryder definitely looks a lot cooler than his son in my case.

Mass Effect Andromeda releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 21st in North America and on March 23rd in Europe.

If you want to see more, and don’t mind mild spoilers (of course there are no spoilers here) you can also check out over thirty minutes of PS4 Pro gameplay.
