Story progress will be blocked in Mass Effect Andromeda’s 10 hour trial

 
Story progress will be blocked in Mass Effect Andromeda’s 10 hour trial, though players will still be allowed to explore freely and access multiplayer. This free trial will be accessible on EA/Origin Access subscribers on March 16th, allowing gamers to play Mass Effect Andromeda for a total of 10 hours before release. 
 
EA has also offered similar free trial for Battlefield 1, which also came with blocks to prevent progression in the game’s single player mode. Even with these blocks Mass Effect players can still enjoy exploring the Galaxy in singleplayer, which should still provide players with plenty of content to enjoy.
