Hot out of last night’s Game Awards in Los Angeles, a new Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer debuts almost five minutes of actual proper gameplay, featuring new protagonist Ryder and her squad visiting new worlds and shooting everybody on them. Interstellar colonisation, one violently subjugated species at a time.

We get a close look at the planet Kadara, including some sort of space port that you know must be a hive of scum and villainy because the commander has an English accent. There’s also Nomad off-roading, firefights with Biotic tech magic, and some, uh, exceedingly hostile wildlife. No matter, we can violently subjugate that too.

Game’s out on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 next March, which can’t get here soon enough.
