It's next month. This is not a drill. Next month, Mass Effect: Andromeda will finally grace us with its presence—and boy, is it an imposing presence.
If you're going to be playing on a PS4 or an Xbox one, you'll need somewhere between 45 GB to 60 GB of free space (though it shouldn't extend past either of those extremes). If you're a PC player, the file size is looking to be about 55 GB. It's hefty either way, but we can't really be surprised what with all the bragging about 4k BioWare has been doing lately.
BiOWare also confirmed that while a good part of the team is still working hard on the Day One patch, the game very recently went gold—which, if you're unfamiliar, means that the initial development of the game has completed.
I'm going to say that again. Completed.
Of course, nothing is set in stone yet, but we're getting closer and closer to the game's March 21 release date. (That's for all platforms.) And if you hear muffled screaming in the distance, it may or may not be me.
