One week before they're set to appear at PAX East in Boston, BioWare cancelled Andromeda's multiplayer beta
The Multiplayer Technical Test for Mass Effect Andromeda was announced back in November, which is also when the sign-ups started.
Now, the Test was cancelled and a producer at BioWare, Fernando Melo apologised on Twitter offering up a screenshot of the multiplayer as a consolation prize.
Sorry we won't have MPTT. I know many were looking forward to it (as were we). Long story but right decision for how close we r to live 1/4— Fernando Melo (@DiscoBabaloo) March 2, 2017
Meanwhile, we'll get some more MP info out - let's get the ball rolling... see you all soon in Andromeda! 4/4 pic.twitter.com/FuhGpuat9f— Fernando Melo (@DiscoBabaloo) March 2, 2017
The multiplayer will still be available at PAX East next weekend, in its playable form.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set for release on 21 March for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Subscribers to EA Access on Xbox One or Origin Access on PC will get a 10 hour preview of the game, come 16 March.
