The Andromeda Galaxy is Mass Effect's Most Beautiful Element
Since the 1990s, the Hubble Space Telescope has been beaming images of stars, nebulas and galaxies back to Earth, giving us the best look anyone alive had ever seen at the worlds beyond our own Milky Way home. Our nearest neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, is but a mere 2.5 million light years from Earth, and though you can view it on a clear night without the aid of NASA's orbiting photography satellite, consumer-grade optics just don't have the same panache. But thanks to Bioware and Mass Effect Andromeda, we don't really need it either. The latest entry in the spacefaring RPG series from EA's Bioware studio transports players to the Andromeda galaxy, presenting them not only with a whole new galaxy to explore, but some of the most awe-inspiring space imagery I've ever seen.
