You may or may not know that Mass Effect 3 had a mobile companion app. It was called Datapad, and included a minigame where you could increase your galactic readiness, besides a codex and a news feed.
For more on how all this will work, check out our Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer guide.
And now, Mass Effect: Andromeda is getting its equivalent. The app is called Apex HQ, and anyone who’s been following news of the game’s Multiplayer might guess from its name that’s all about that particular game mode.
Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer matches appear as a list of missions. You can tackle them personally as multiplayer games, or you can send a strike team to try and get it done over a variable chunk of real time, much like War Table operations in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
