Bioware gives us just a taste of combat and a new class system

Tonight gamers tuned in eagerly to Nvidia's CES presentation for a new glimpse of Bioware's space RPG Mass Effect: Andromeda. A release date was revealed this morning - March 21 - and this new footage was just a glimpse of what's to come.  

The video shown on stage featured a loyalty mission for your squad mate Peebee, an asari that creative director Mac Walters has previously described as "very bubbly." We also got a taste of the new character profile system that allows you to swap class, say from solider to engineer, right in the heat of battle. It's not much considering the game is just months away, but it sure is pretty.
