YouTuber Dude18594 has gotten his hands on a copy of Mass Effect: Andromeda early. Even better, it's the PC version. Given that most impressions and videos this week have been based off the PS4 version, he decided to put his copy to the test.
Seen above, he recorded the first 30 minutes of Mass Effect: Andromeda's PC version running on a GTX 1080, a $550 graphics card that is currently the fourth most powerful GPU solution in the world.
The results aren't so hot. While Mass Effect: Andromeda shows moments of brilliance, particularly in its outdoor environments, it's inconsistent in its delivery. Face models and some lightning effects appear off, to a point where it's difficult to keep your eyes off them. And of course, the dreadful facial animation is visible in its full capacity.
The good news is that performance appears to be relatively stable. The original Mass Effect didn't enjoy such a luxury.
Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on March 21st. Our review will be published Monday morning.
