Like other EA titles Mass Effect: Andromeda has joined the Early Access team with gamers getting 10 hours of content 1 week before the game launches if they're EA Access members. BioWare confirmed that EA Access and Origin Access members can enjoy the game on March 16 before anyone else.
Now before you think about beating the game before it goes public think again. BioWare has been in safeguards to prevent players from going pass specific story related missions.
"To bring you the complete Mass Effect: Andromeda combat experience, all aspects of multiplayer will be available for you to try. Customize your character's equipment and expand your arsenal with Multiplayer packs, which can be purchased with Credits or Andromeda Points from the in-game store."
Everything will carry over when the game goes public.
Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on March 21st for Xbox One, PS4, and PC Origin.
