Spoiler alert: As you might suspect since you’re reading an article about the end of the game, this article contains spoilers about the end of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Like, right off the bat. So if you don’t want to know about endings, back away now.
Everything you need to know about Mass Effect: Andromeda endings
Ready? OK, good.
We’ll start off with the big spoiler: There’s only one ending to Mass Effect: Andromeda.
We’ve already written about how certain decisions have an effect on certain events during the ending of the game, but nothing you do effects the outcome. During the final priority ops mission, "Meridian: The Way Home," you’re always going to defeat the Archon, and you’re always going to activate Meridian.
There is, however, one decision you’ll make after the end of the priority ops missions that feels like it’ll have lasting consequences. When you get back to the Nexus, you’ll meet with Initiative leadership, and you’ll be asked to pick an interim ambassador to the Nexus representing the rest of the Andromeda galaxy.
Who you choose won’t change anything about Mass Effect: Andromeda, but it sure seems like it’ll figure in during the inevitable sequel. Your choices are:
- One of the other Pathfinders (who each Pathfinder is depends on certain decisions you’ve made)
- August Bradley, mayor of Prodromos
- Morda, the leader of clan Nakmor
- The Moshae
Since it doesn’t effect anything during Mass Effect: Andromeda, we can’t give you any guidance here. You’ll have follow your heart. Or just pick Morda to get under Director Tann’s skin.
