Introducing Ryder: Mass Effect Andromeda's Player Character is Female by Default

The Mass Effect development team answered a few questions at E3 2016, in particular the following details from that Q&A were shared on NeoGAF:

  • Suggests a Ryder family and "more than one Ryder".
  • Female is the official default.
  • Confirmed they are in the last leg of development and expect a  2017 spring launch.
Is she Commander Ryder or does she have another title? We need to know more! In any case, feel free to begin worshiping your newest queen, FemRy or Lady!Ryder— or maybe just, Ryder.
