Mass Effect Andromeda is out in only a few short days and it brings with it a lot of excitement and trepidation about how the next iteration of the popular franchise will continue the legacy. There are a few ways, however to truly prepare your mind-brains and your bodies for the journey that will be Mass Effect Andromeda.
Finish Your Initiative Training
A fair few months ago (Earth Time) a specialised set of training was established on the Mass Effect website, known simply as the Andromeda Initiative. These periodically released briefings covered everything from weapons training, information on our new home in the Nexus, the golden planets they have already discovered and much more. The briefings are mere minutes long and if you complete every single one of the six mission briefs, you will be awarded exclusive Pathfinder gear that you ca equip in-game.
All you have to do is sign into Mass Effect Andromeda with the same email address used when you sign up for the Andromeda Initiative. If this does not really interest you however, I have summaries of each of the mission briefs available on my website.
APEX Missions Aren’t Going To Complete Themselves
You think you can just walk away from a game such as Mass Effect Andromeda and have a social life? No. That is why the APEX app has come into existence. Actually the APEX Companion App is a one-stop shop where you can manage your multiplayer characters in terms of abilities, loadouts and skills, as well as send your Strike Teams on missions remotely.
You can follow every single on of your active missions, as well as your Prestige Rank and even recently unlocked rewards. It is a fantastic tool for managing your teams on the go and keeping track of your squads in Andromeda. Plus you can use it as a mobile bragging tool.
