Mass Effect Andromeda Gets Free Demo on PS4, Xbox One and PC with New Trailer

Mass Effect Andromeda had a bit of a rocky launch, but now Bioware invites gamers to try it for free.

July 13, 2017

The launch of Mass Effect Andromeda has been a bit underwhelming for many, but BioWare has gone right to work to improve the game, and quite a lot has been done to address some of the initial issues. Today, the developer and Electronic Arts are inviting gamers to give it a try for free.

A ten hour-long demo has been launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC, basically equivalent to what was available as an early access for EA Access and Origin Access subscribers. The trial allows you to play the first planet of the game (the desert planet Eos) in single player, multiplayer up to a total of ten hours.

Whatever progression you achieve during the demo will then carry over to the full game should you decide to make the purchase.


The demo is available here for PC, here for PS4, and here for Xbox One . Of course, you have to select the free trial option, because the page is the same as the purchase for the full demo.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
