Mass Effect: Andromeda teams up with European Space Agency for real world astronaut training

Six volunteers will get a first-hand experience at what it’s like to prep for deep space exploration

The Andromeda Initiative has registered six new human recruits to board the Ark Hyperion, and we’re collaborating with the European Space Agency to let six content creators participate in an authentic astronaut training experience before launch.

Before embarking on this mission to explore a new galaxy, the recruits will have to show their abilities in a series of space training sessions within the European Astronaut Centre, home base for all European astronauts, in Cologne. They will discover the meaning of courage as they prepare for humanity’s journey first-hand.

The six recruits include:

  • Squeezie from France
  • TheGrefG from Spain
  • Pietsmiet from Germany
  • Jane from the UK
  • SciFun from Poland
  • Steffan from the UK


Just like the Andromeda Initiative, the European Space Agency inspires human civilisation to reach for the stars into the Milky Way’s neighboring galaxies. How far will you go?

Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on 23rd March, 2017 in Europe. Sign up for the Andromeda Initiative now to receive pre-departure training information and exclusive in-game rewards.

You should send them to space as well

What does this have to do with the game?

This game can´t get here fast enough :)

For the first year of the multiplayer, EA should give the highest scorer chance to go to space.


I guess it was unrealistic to hope Mass Effect would go back to being single-player only. Or that it would go back to being an RPG, not a third-person shooter with light RPG elements.
