BioWare also said Andromeda is a brand new game set after the original trilogy, with its new characters, a new protagonist named Ryder, and an entirely different style. Well know sci-fi writer N. K. Jemisin will write this four-part Mass Effect: Andromeda novels, with the first one, Mass Effect: Andromeda – Initiative, releasing this August.
“Titan will publish four unmissable Mass Effect novels, sure to appeal to the game’s huge number of fans. The novels will act as prequel and sequels to the events in the games and will become part of the overarching Mass Effect saga. They will focus on key characters and answer the many questions fans have been asking,” reads the announcement from Titan Books.
“With a new game – Mass Effect: Andromeda – set for release in 2016, the launch of a new series of canonical novels is timely. While earlier Mass Effect games focused on the defense of the Milky Way galaxy, with humans pitted against a race of ruthless mechanical invaders known as the Reapers, the new story will take the game in a dramatic new direction and is set in a new region of space, with a new and deadly enemy.”
Mass Effect: Andromeda novel 1,2 and 3 will release in August 2016, March 2017, and September 2017 respectively. The final fourth edition will be written by Mass Effect: Andromeda’s creative director Mac Walters, which will release in 2018.
