Mass Effect Andromeda Discussion
We will need to find out if this game can play offline full time and find out if your character gets saved on their servers at any point.
I am starting to see a nasty trend in games lately with this. It all started with that Simcity remake a while back turning our beloved offline single play franchise into an online only disaster. Now a days more recently with Forza Horizon 3 and now Ghost Recon Wildlands and perhaps this new Mass Effect? It's a sad trend. I love online play, but only as an option that I can chose to go into when I wish. Not something thats pushed 24/7 while I play solo. Worse yet, syncing my (trained) character saves on their servers before I have a chance to turn off online mode in settings while starting up the game. Thus exposing yourself to catching a flag on your account.
Certainly we can do a full firewall block of the game or yank the modem before starting up. Which is starting to look like the only way we can play our modern solo games how we like. At least, without them being taken away from us for cheating while doing solo play (in spite of the fact we bought these games)
I am hoping we can use trainers for this game without issue. What are all of your thoughts? Do you think we are going to have any possible issues with this game or will it be smooth sailing?
The was a command line that forced offline mode by disabling eac, -eac_laucher i believe, but will have to check that, which removes EAC from running & thus forcing offline mode.
Other games that have this single player part have been supported & I expect CH will continue to support them
edit for mroe info;
as per WD2 (similar concept, thus expect similar treatment); Link

Bioware's Ian Frazier has confirmed that Mass Effect: Andromeda will be playable offline in single-player mode. It remains to be seen if, like Dragon Age: Inquisition, an Origin "check in" will be required for MEA but it's good news indeed for those who do not wish to be "always online" when playing through the single player campaign.
Offline Single Player Confirmed

I'm a little apprehensive with the multiplayer in andromeda, I liked it in 3 with friends but the whole unlocking thing was awful so I edited the credits to spam unlock packs to get races, I'm sure they made that impossible this time around but I hope it won't be the case that It'd be needed. I'd love to open packs and play for upgrades, but I just don't want RNG involved in race unlocks... I want my damn asari >.>
