NVIDIA Showcase: maximize your experience with Mass Effect: Andromeda on PC

Nvidia Mass Effect Andromeda

PCGamesN Nvidia Showcase posts are created in partnership with Nvidia.

The original Mass Effect trilogy was a revelation, offering gamers an epic role-playing experience unlike any other. The Mass Effect series transports gamers to a galaxy filled with memorable characters and visually stunning worlds that come to life with rich dialogue, intense action, and a story that puts the fate of every sentient being in the palm of your hands.

Mass Effect: Andromeda changes things up by taking players to a brand new galaxy. The new setting gave the development team the freedom to build something that truly sets itself apart from the series.

Gamers can explore new worlds filled with new races, which means discovering everything Mass Effect: Andromeda has to offer will delight both longtime fans and newcomers alike. A refined combat system featuring new abilities and weapons along with an improved user interface also promises to kick the action up a notch.

Mass Effect: Andromeda also features visuals built on EA DICE’s next-gen Frostbite 3 engine, which allowed BioWare to push the game’s graphics to new heights. The previous Mass Effect titles set a high visual bar, but Mass Effect: Andromeda is well equipped to exceed our expectations. High levels of detail, lush colors, and fluid animations make every world and character come to life.

Gamers who own a powerful GPU like NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX series can get the best experience possible as they can enable higher settings without having to sacrifice fast framerates. If your system is equipped with a higher-end GPU like the GTX 1070, GTX 1080, and the newly released GTX 1080 Ti, you can crank the details all the way up and still reach 60 frames-per-second or higher. You can also take advantage of high-dynamic range (HDR), and 4K resolutions for an even better visual experience. Check out the official system requirements below to make sure your gaming rig is ready for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
