Mass Effect: Andromeda will have free DLC expansions
Worried about getting bored with Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer component? If it’s anything like the previous game in the series, it should be robust, but eventually the maps and abilities will get a bit stale… but much like its predecessor, you can count on getting free DLC periodically to keep the multiplayer feeling fresh. There will be no multiplayer season pass or anything of the sort, either, so you can just jump in and enjoy each new multiplayer update as it happens.
There’s no firm announcements on how many multiplayer DLC releases will happen, although Mass Effect 3 had a total of five large multiplayer updates. Players will be able to pick up lockboxes through play or by dropping a couple of dollars, but it won’t be mandatory to progress through the game. The game launches on March 21st, with an early trial version available on March 16th including both multiplayer and single-player gameplay.
