Mass Effect's YouTube channel has released part 2 video of it's official gameplay featuring skills, profiles and squads

This gameplay video focuses on character customisation and skill allocation options, as well as squad command. The skills in Andromeda will not be limited to a single class, rather they will be divided into types with dozens of skills and over 300 skill upgrades. Types of skills available will include Combat, Tech and Biotics.

Players will be able to choose between seven profiles: Soldier, Engineer, Adept, Sentinel, Vanguard, Infiltrator and Explorer. The profiles will become available during the game and cater to different play styles. Higher level profiles can be unlocked by using skills and the profiles can be swapped out at any time during the game.

There's a "favourites" option which allows rotation of four profiles in total, along with three skills for each of them. This option will be available during combat.

The player's squad has six members and each of them has three active and two passive skills. The squad can be set to "defend", "attack" or "heel" during combat. A "team up" option is available as well, allowing for some power combos to be unleashed onto an enemy. The combos are activated when the enemy is "primed", and skills for priming or detonating can be levelled up for each member.
