Andromeda 5 is a sci fi browser based MMO developed and published by XS Software. There is also a downloadable client for PC and Mac that provides the same experience as the browser version. Players get to explore Andromeda, Orion, Ursa Major and many more other galaxies in this exciting strategy game with RPG elements and real time combat. A good selection of various space vessels are available, from fast destroyers to bulky ships with great defense, there are plenty space crafts to satisfy each play style. Andromeda 5 ships have 7 attributes: shield, corpus, targeting, avoidance, speed, damage and cargo. Charismatic NPCs like Caribbean Joe or Admiral Golgotha make Andromeda 5 a game with a story that’s worth the read.
At the beginning of the game players are required to pick one of the two available game factions, Vindexis or Regia Ales. This choice won’t have a big gameplay impact so players shouldn’t waste too much time on this. Just remember that the 2 factions are at war and members from the other faction are automatically your enemies so if you have friends that play Andromeda 5 and you want to join them make sure to ask before making the faction choice. Andromeda 5 ships are the most important feature as they influence combat role and play style. The good news is that a player is not restricted to certain ships, all of them can be collected provided the necessary requirements (resources, level) are met. Ship customization is another major feature that allows players to upgrade, personalize and boost ships performance. Players need to worry about their own piloting skills as well because a ship is practically worthless without a skilled pilot. There are 5 types of skills and more than 30 individual abilities. Just like in MMORPG games, players have active skills and passive talents. Active skills are placed on the action bar and used during combat. Fusion is an Andromeda 5 crafting feature used to obtain superior resources and ammo.
Andromeda 5 gameplay can be divided into PvE and PvP content. There are loads of story missions, side quests and dailies to be completed. Some galaxies have an open PvP policy where players can attack or get attacked at any moment. The best way to enjoy the game is to mix PvE with PvP because resources needed for ship upgrades are obtained by completing PvE content and PvP fights are exciting. Remember that a fully upgraded ship will not always bring you PvP victory, player skills are just as important. Andromeda 5 is one of the free browser games with a microtransactions system. Premium currency can be obtained by real money acquisition from the Andromeda 5 game store or by taking offers from partner websites.
