Mass Effect: Andromeda Free Trial Available Because Even Pirates Don’t Want It
Mass Effect Andromeda Free Trial
(Last Updated On: July 15, 2017)

After BioWare volunteered to remove the Denuvo DRM from Mass Effect: Andromeda, it paved the way for pirates and crackers to get their hands on the game without any sort of inhibitory factors preventing them from playing it without paying a dime for it. Well, apparently that wasn’t enough to convince gamers to give the game a try, and so now BioWare and EA are giving away a free trial of the game.

Blues is reporting that over on the Mass Effect website, there’s a free trial offering 10 free hours of play. You can grab the trial right now and it will be available all the way through the fall up until November 1st, 2017.

The 10-hour trial is freely available and there are no strings attached. Not only that, but it gives you full access to the first planet in the game, so there are no restrictions on what you can do and how you can do it. Wiser minds might even complete the trial, save their game, download the full version and then use the cracked version to continue where they left off from the trial.

Not only is the game available to play through single-player, but you can also play through the multiplayer modes as well.

Originally the 10-hour trial was only limited to those who had Origin Access on home consoles or PC. However, now the free trial is available even if you don’t have Origin Access.

This is a good way for EA to pad the numbers for Mass Effect: Andromeda, because even people who don’t buy the game could still be used toward their aggregate of total hours played or total users engaged. Weasel numbers.

The game came out earlier this year during the middle of March, but it was riddled with bugs and glitches at launch, and a lot of people were off-put by the low quality animations throughout the game’s dialogue sequences. Various patches later and some of the animations were fixed along with the glitches. However, a lot of people became frustrated with the game’s SJWism, and felt it was too much propaganda for them to handle.

EA has yet to say what the sales are for the game and have repeatedly denied commenting on any future single-player DLC releases, but reports have gone around claiming that the Mass Effect series is shelved and that EA will be watching over the shoulders of BioWare for the upcoming Anthem. Presumably EA may be taking a more strict approach to prevent Social Justice Warrior material from appearing in the AAA game? They didn’t quite say, but it seems apparent that EA wants to make sure that strict quality control measures are enacted for Anthem leading up to its release.

In the meantime, you can download the free trial of Mass Effect: Andromeda right now.

    This only shows how frantically EA wants to sell this game. I hope they choke on it.

  • Audrius Kliukas

    The game is not worth those 45 gigs it takes up on the HDD. Only played a couple of hours of the free trial, but already I don’t want to play it any more. Animations are horrendous and they break the immersion real quick. There’s barely any shooting at the beginning, but that too is nothing to write home about.

  • John27

    If they want to shove this SJW BS down our throats it’s going to cost them big time. I didn’t even waste the disk space for CPY’s release.

  • John27

    >EA ruins game with forced SJW crap.
    >Game unsurprisingly tanks.

    The big question is will EA learn from their mistake?

    • Feli Aslan

      Did we germans learned our lessons after WWI?

  • SevTheBear

    Let’s hope EA and Bioware don’t repeat this again. They are sitting on some damn good IPs and I would really hate to seen them all go down because of feminist and SJW BS.

    “This is a good way for EA to pad the numbers for Mass Effect: Andromeda, because even people who don’t buy the game could still be used toward their aggregate of total hours played or total users engaged. Weasel numbers.” And that my friends is the real reason why EA did this, not to make you want to buy it, but to have “good” numbers to show to the investors “1 MILLION Hours played!”, EA truly deserves nothing but death.

  • GuyverOne

    Really is depressing what happened to Bioware, they used to be my favourite dev but you couldn’t pay me to play their shit now.

    • Keystone

      And, as this sad desperate 10 hour demo shows, they couldn’t give it to people for *free* to play their shit now.

  • Alistair

    Look at that thumbnail isn’t she ugly as fuck.

    A SJWs vision of beauty lol 😂

    • Pratim Gupta
      • rotekz

        The early pre-uglification character model isn’t too bad. They then distorted the face to remove any possible attraction for men.

        Some anon dude spent 15 minutes and got infinitely better results.

        Any kind of involvement with this game is rewarding the haters of beauty.

        • Audrius Kliukas

          Was that the goal? To make her as unattractive as possible?

          • rotekz

            Unattractive to normal men but still attractive to ugly lesbo women.

      • Bitterbear

        M. Night Shyamalan Plot twist: That’s how Jayde Rossi actually looks like when you get rid of the makeup and the Photoshop retouching.

        • Pratim Gupta

          Lol, but no, i saw her without makeup pic in twitter and she looks nothing like that, Bioware made it intentionally

      • Alistair

        that notthing like her the woman on the left got long hair and not ugly as fuck.

        the woman on the right even though she fiction still ugly as fuck. very bad coding.

        if i were jayde i would sue EA.

        • Pratim Gupta

          EA not to blame, Bioware and their gender politics are

      • Disqusted

        Did they actually scan her face or just made a model based on her?

        • Pratim Gupta

          Scanned her face along with another model to make both Male and female Ryder

          • Disqusted

            Weird. If I look up images of that model, she doesn’t seem to have that assymmetrical nose and her lip dragged over to one side. They must have done that on purpose.

            It stands out so much. Most normal people don’t have THAT assymmetrical faces. Also doesn’t help they gave her sparse eyelashes, the eye shader looks bad, and the camera FOV makes her face look creepy as shit.

          • Pratim Gupta

            Did it on purpose to please the sjw and feminazi

          • Audrius Kliukas

            I don’t get how this would please those people. Was the face model too beautiful or something? I don’t get it.

          • SJWs feel conventionally attractive women in games appeals to the “male gaze”, thus reducing women to nothing but sexual objects. By defying the “male gaze” women are able to take ownership of their own appearance and have the merit of their stature judged by their character, not their sex appeal.

          • Audrius Kliukas

            I see. It makes sense now.

          • As Pratim Gupta pointed out, BioWare did this on purpose. Scott came out fine. The Frostbite’s 4D capture cannot screw up a model like that based on the way the software and and performance capture hardware is designed. It’s 1:1 with a 360 degree capture with the capability to stabilize object depth, making it easier for the artists to clean up the meshes afterward. This is what they’ve used for Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst and Battlefield 1.

            BioWare went back in and fuglied up Jayde’s face mesh on purpose, since the 4D capture would have captured her identical to the way it captured Scott.

          • Disqusted

            Yeah, I haven’t seen many good comparison pics, so I wasn’t sure if they just picked pictures that emphasize the difference or not.

            A lot of the game shots also have issues like awful eyes, awful lighting, awful camera, etc, etc. Makes them look even worse.

            To be honest, I also felt like it’s more difficult to have an attractive female face look good, than it is for a guy. So I thought that was also a factor.

    • Disqusted

      Needs to be an extra 400 pounds.

    • If I had a face that looked like that, I’d shave my dog’s ass and make it walk backwards.

  • Disqusted

    Meh.

  • ThyPancakeConsumed

    Music to my ears. I hope that men hating barbie doll gets fired.

    • Bitterbear

      Men don’t hate barbie dolls, fat women on the other hand..

      • ThyPancakeConsumed

        Yeah, there’s bit of irony involved as it comes to this particular situation.
