Mass Effect: Andromeda producer Michael Gamble has confirmed that the game’s Asari squadmate, Peebee, can be romanced. The announcement came via a Twitter response.
The Mass Effect series is renown for its strong story, with players being able to react to events and make decisions that impact the course of the game. One key feature in Mass Effect, and many Bioware games, is the ability to “romance” select other characters in the game.
As was expected, romancing is returning on Mass Effect: Andromeda, but until now the studio has kept the romance options in the game a secret. Peebee is the first time anyone from Bioware has commented on a romance option.
One fan decided to message Michael Gamble to ask whether Commander Ryder or someone else aboard the Tempest spaceship would be able to romance Peebee. In an unorthodox move, Gamble confirmed that Peebee can indeed be romanced in the game.
While Peebee has been confirmed as a romanceable option, it is still unclear whether Peebee can be romanced by both male and female versions of Commander Ryder. In the original Mass Effect Trilogy, depending on sexual orientation, some characters were open to romancing by either gender.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is due for release on March 21, 2017.
