While responding to a fan on Twitter, Mass Effect: Andromeda producer Michael Gamble confirms that the game’s Asari squadmate, Peebee, can be romanced.
A key feature in many BioWare games is the ability of the player to “romance” other characters in the game. Romancing is returning in BioWare’s upcoming sci-fi epic Mass Effect: Andromeda, but the studio has decided to keep the romance options in the game a secret. However, one possible romance option has slipped through the cracks in the form of the Asari squadmate Peebee.
BioWare recently released a video featuring Peebee voice actress Christine Lakin as she introduces her character to fans. In the video, Lakin enthusiastically describes Peebee’s quirky personality and how the characters grows over the course of the adventure. She also mentions that Peebee can “fall in love” during the events of Mass Effect: Andromeda, which led to speculation that she was either a romance option or would become involved with another character in the game.
Curious fans that couldn’t wait until Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s release in March to learn whether Commander Ryder or someone else aboard the Tempest spaceship would be romancing Peebee took to Twitter to ask for clarification. One fan managed to get an answer out of Mass Effect: Andromeda producer Michael Gamble, who simply confirmed that Peebee can indeed be romanced in the game.
