Mass Effect: Andromeda Achievement List Revealed

By Marc Hollinshead,
It feels like aeons have passed since we heard about the conception of Mass Effect: Andromeda. We also had to wait an excruciatingly long time to actually get any solid information after being subjected to video after video of somewhat disappointing teasers. However, those aeons have now turned into mere days as the game's release is imminent and a new adventure in the Mass Effect universe is ready to be experienced.


Mass Effect Andromeda is a first for the franchise as it deviates away from everything we know about the series. Shepard is long gone and Ryder is now front and centre. As a pathfinder, you will be venturing into the distant Andromeda galaxy to find a new home for humanity, which is probably in no small part due to the Reapers eradicating the Milky Way. What dangers will be found there? That is still anyone's guess but it is probably safe to say that there will be many.

As achievement hunters, fans of the series are surely intrigued as to what the game's list entails. Bioware are known to have a few staples in their achievement lists (namely enticing us to romance someone) but there have still been a few surprises in the past. Are there any interesting surprises to be found in their latest title? Let's find out.

There are 55 achievements worth a total of 1,000 Gamerscore, none of which are secret:
