It's N7 day - Mass Effect's November 7 "holiday" - and that means the arrival of the newest cinematic trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Obviously, there's not a lot of gameplay to be seen in this trailer, though there are what appear to be a few in-game shots.

New Battlefield 1 trailer previews single-player campaign

It's hard to avoid talk of Battlefield 1 ever since the game's multiplayer beta wrapped up, but one topic that's been notably missing from discussion is the game's single-player campaign.
