The Far Edge of Fate coming January 17
That Zurvan fight looks rough, chopping away slices of the arena like a pizza... And the new 24 man having a boss knock people off an airship? Jimmys gonna be falling off all over Eorzea come January 17.
I hope they give us the orchestrion roll for that rockin' Sohm Al (Hard) remix... I may have an orchestrion addiction problem 100+ rolls.
What do you think about the golden gathering/crafting weapons? Just glamor like the "luminary" ones from 2.x? That's my guess.
Mark your calendars for 3/21
Looks like March 21, 2017 is the big day (23 March in Europe). I was super looking forward to this game for the holiday season and was disappointed it got pushed back to 2017, but March 21 isn't too bad. I hope it can live up to the "massive" amount of hype!
"On behalf of our teams across Montreal, Edmonton and Austin, I’m excited to announce that Mass EffectTM: Andromeda will be launching in North America on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 and beginning Thursday, March 23, 2017 in Europe. We appreciate your patience (and in fact, even your lack of patience in some instances) as we’ve been focused on completing the game. "
Bonus, CES 2017 footage!

What changes are coming to Symmetra?
Ultimate: The teleporter works as before, but now you have the option to change it from a teleporter to a shield generator that has a "huge range" and ignores line of sight. This is a big deal for those 2nd points where your spawn is close enough to the objective on defense that a teleporter is worthless. Teleporter health is now partly shield health that can regen and has slightly more overall health.
Shields: Gone. Replaced with a Rienhardt-esque shield that travels along the ground in front of you.
Turrets: Stock up to 6 now, all 6 available at match start, no more waiting until 2 seconds before the offense comes out before you can place your last turret.
Primary fire: slightly longer range.
Secondary fire: No change
