Though players could customize Commander Shepard in dozens of different ways, EA and BioWare definitely treated the main character as the face of the original Mass Effect trilogy. Even “FemShep” got her own special edition for Mass Effect 3. But Ryder, the star of Mass Effect: Andromeda, is still something of a blank slate to most gamers. The game’s latest trailer doesn’t do much to dispel this mystery, but it does introduce fans to “Sara Ryder,” the official female version of the game’s main character:
Put on the uniform of the Pathfinder as Sara Ryder and fight for humanity’s new home. Explore dangerous worlds, keep your crew alive, and unravel the mysteries of Andromeda. The journey begins now. How far will you go?
Mass Effect: Andromeda is now available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
