In the age of smartphones and wifi its clear that technology has come a long way from dial up internet and motorola razors. Mass Effect: Andromeda has a solid plan for utilizing one of the most widely used devices in the world. By creating a companion app for their game, they have opened the door for players to have access to their multiplayer characters while on the go.
Dubbed Apex HQ, the app will allow players to track their progression within the game. The app will also display information about what players have unlocked, such as what characters and rewards you have been given. Everything on the home screen can be adjusted to whatever widgets you wish to see first.
What stands out in the app is the ability for players to adjust their character load out while they’re away from their console. What’s cool about this is that the next time you log into the game, the character changes you made in the app will have been enacted within the game itself. You can change your load out when sitting in class bored and then go home and try it out.
To be able to do this however, you will need to take a few steps. First of which, you will need to log into your EA account that will be linked to your console or PC that you will be playing Mass Effect: Andromeda on. If at the point you download the app and log in, but haven’t played multiplayer yet, you’ll still be able to track your progression.
Below you can find a list of features offered on the app as they appear on the Apex HQ web page. Mass Effect: Andromeda will release soon, so stay strong, the release date will come eventually.
