You may remember that throughout the entire trilogy of Mass Effect players took control of Commander Shepard. No matter which gender you selected or the first name you chose to use, the character would always be referred to as Shepard. Now with Mass Effect: Andromeda moving away from the original trilogy many have wondered just what the next protagonist will be called. Well it seems that the producer of Mass Effect: Andromeda, Michael Gamble, decided to provide that news through a simple message revealing that the new protagonist will have the last name of Ryder.
At the moment very little is known about what Ryder’s journey will entail but EA is currently aiming to have Mass Effect: Andromeda released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2017.
