BioWare and Electronic Arts recently released the first in a series of gameplay videos for Mass Effect: Andromeda. You can check out the extended gameplay video showcasing the new game’s combat in the player below.

In the game, players will be able to utilize a jump-jet and unlock Biotic powers in combat. Biotics will enable players to manipulate energy and bend the rules of physics. Besides melee weapons, there will be four types of guns: pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, and sniper rifles. There are three classes of firearms: Milky Way guns are ballistic-type weapons; Remnant weapons use energy beams; Helios weapons are plasma-based and can have heat-seeking projectiles.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is due out on March 21 for PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Windows PC.
