All progress made during the demo will be carried forwards to the full game if you chose to purchase the game. This ten hour trial allows players to explore the world of Andromeda for a few hours without needing to commit to purchasing the game.
Originally, only those with EA Access or Origin Access accounts could try out the game first before its release with a similar 10-hour trial. If you haven't had a chance to check out the life and times of the Ryder family, then you're in luck - a 10 hour trial for the game is now available for all.
Mass Effect Andromeda has a weak start but sure, come try the worst bit at no cost. However, the Mass Effect: Andromeda campaign is only limited to the first planet, which players can complete in about an hour, while the multiplayer mode has no limitations.
The developer and publisher have now announced that a free demo is now available. You can grab the trial right now and it will be available all the way through the fall up until November 1st, 2017. The hours that they spent in the original trial will be deducted from the 10 hours that the new trial will offer.
The game was pretty divisive, some of the Mass Effect fanbase enjoyed it, while others didn't. Those who already participated in the Origin free trial can still join this trial and just play the time they have remaining.
