Batarians are coming to Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer mode.
Multiplayer in Andromeda is closely tied in with the game's campaign which doesn't feature batarians at all, so it will be interesting to see how BioWare explains their presence.
The simplest reason is that a few travelled to Andromeda in the Nexus and have just now been awoken from cryo-sleep.
The update will reveal all, but Batarians will not appear in the game's single-player mode, Mass Effect producer Fernando Melo tweeted.
