Mass Effect: Andromeda can’t be too far from an actual reveal, and its developers have been posting little but interesting snippets of information on Social Media.
Lead Designer Ian Frazier lined up a few posts on creature and AI development, also teasing a “very large” enemy.

This week was very hard. But it ended well, with sweet new character progression to see and a very, very large new foe to fight. 🙂

Highlight of my week was seeing a gameplay designer murdered by his own creation, shortly after he gave me crap for dying to it.

If you’re wondering whether the new Mass Effect will include romance like its predecessors, wonder no more. Looks like the team’s new Senior Cinematic Animator Tal Peleg has immediately been put at work on the juicy stuff.
Animating a romance culmination on Andromeda isn’t as easy as I’d imagine. pic.twitter.com/54ecAmUBiU

If I’m interpreting that video correctly, we’re in for some quite “steamy” stuff. Incidentally, you’ll see Peleg’s work in action much before the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda, as his talent was put to good use on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End before his recent move to BioWare.
Incidentally, I really hope that Peleg’s talent will do some good for the game’s more titillating scene, because if Mass Effect 1-3 and the Dragon Age series are any indication, BioWare really needs some help there.
