Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer beta testing starting soon

BioWare has decided that Mass Effect: Andromeda should, like the rest of the series, stay an experience primarily focused on singleplayer with multiplayer there to enrich, rather than burden the experience.

"There's a system that we use called the Strike Team system, and fundamentally it allows you to go between singleplayer and multiplayer within the game, and it's packaged around a meta-story of what's going on in Helios", BioWare producer Mike Gamble told Kotaku about a week ago.

Andromeda's multiplayer beta testing is right around the corner, as lead designer Ian Frazier confirmed in a Tweet yesterday.
