These 6 recruits get to find out what it means to be Pathfinders. The Mass Effect Andromeda website posted the announcement video and we are super jealous! According to the website, “Before embarking on this mission to explore a new galaxy, the recruits will have to show their abilities in a series of space training sessions within the European Astronaut Centre, home base for all European astronauts in Cologne. They will discover the meaning of courage as they prepare for humanity’s journey first-hand.”

We are so pumped for this game and very jealous of these recruits! Are you ready for Mass Effect Andromeda? Let us know in the comment section below and follow DFTG on Twitter for all your gaming news!
