BioWare’s action third-person shooter game “Mass Effect: Andromeda” is adding new features to the game series, which include weapon naming and crafting. BioWare designer Ian S. Frazier confirmed the amazing news on Twitter, along with a few number of key details.

Mass Effect Weapon Crafting Feature
According to PC Gamer, Frazier on twitter suggested weapon crafting feature that will allow players to build their own melee weapons, like the krogan-style hammers. These melee weapons can also be named “GRABTHAR’S HAMMER,” the website added.

The BioWare’s third-person shooter previously had melee weapons in multiplayer, but never in the main campaign and outside of the Omni Blade. In the latest Andromeda game, things are about to change, the Omni Blade will make a return.

“Mass Effect: Andromeda” is not the only BioWare’s title that had weapon crafting feature, BioWare’s other RPG series, “Dragon Age,” also had weapon crafting system onboard. But Mass Effect’s crafting system is going to be different from the Dragon Age: Inquisition.”

Mass Effect: Andromeda Faces Some Serious Issues In Australia
According to Just Push Start, BioWare’s latest RPG “Mass Effect Andromeda” has just received an MA 15+ rating in the Aussie country. The rating was given to media that contains strong contents, which include sex scenes, and is legally restricted to individuals aged 15 years and above.

In the board’s findings, the Australian Board explained that “Mass Effect Andromeda” was restricted in Australia due to the ‘strong contents’. The action-packed RPG contained online interactivity, strong sex scenes, and even violence, the Australian Classification Board claimed.

The Australian Board’s rating on “Mass Effect: Andromeda” goes even further, claiming the game has a moderate impact on themes, violence, language, drug use, and even nudity. In addition, the sex scenes are also noted down in having a strong impact.

BioWare’s “Mass Effect: Andromeda” is scheduled for release on March 21 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
