The 10-hour Mass Effect: Andromeda free trial mode is now available for everyone. You no longer need to be an Origin Access subscriber to try the game out.
Back when Mass Effect: Andromeda was all the hype and people couldn’t wait to try it out, EA made it possible for Origin Access subscribers to be able to play the game roughly a week before the game released. The “Play First” trial as they called it gave subscribers an opportunity to play 10 hours worth of the games’ content before the game released officially. Well, good news: the 10-hour Andromeda free trial mode is now available for everyone.

As we all know, Andromeda had a rather shaky launch. The free 10-hour pre-release trial did the game no favours and on the contrary, may have actually deterred some from making the purchase. We did a first impressions of the free trial which you can read here.
Before the Andromeda free trial
In case you’re wondering what the game was like pre-patches and fixes, the people all looked dead inside and limbs had minds of their own often deciding to go on trips of their own. We’ve done a full review of the game as well, which you can read here.
We guess the idea of making the game available to everyone now is to show them that the game isn’t as broken now as it was then. We’re sure EA didn’t expect to see themselves in this position before the game out earlier this year but you gotta do what you gotta do. The good news is that a lot of the patches that have been implemented to the game have fixed a majority of the issues players had with the game. But there are still quite a few around. Which really shouldn’t have been the case in the first place, to begin with.
BioWare recently added more content for Andromeda’s multiplayer Apex missions, including the Batarians and a new difficulty level: Platinum. Other than that we’ve no word on whether they have any DLCs or expansions planned for single player.
