You’ll additionally acquire a brand new squadmate, Vetra, in for the discount. Vetra has highly effective armor that permits her to tank enemies successfully and mainly fills the identical kind of soldier with tech experience ability set that outlined much-loved Turian Garrus again within the Mass Effect trilogy. Those two most likely would’ve received alongside like a home on hearth…
Before you fly: Explore the Tempest and your crew
You’ve clearly met Liam and Cora earlier than in the midst of your Nexus and Habitat 7 exploring, however there’s extra to the Tempest than that. One factor you need to do as quickly as you get it’s discover – go and chat to all the crew. There’s Gil, the engineer, science officer Suvi, Salarian pilot Kallo and Asari Lexi.

Throughout the ship you’ll discover some key locations. Most necessary are the next:
- Email Terminals: There’s one in every of these on the bridge and one in your quarters. Some quests or quest penalties will probably be delivered through electronic mail, so test typically.
- Repsec station: If you wish to respec your character, the means to take action is discovered down within the medbay. Spend credit to reset your ability factors and spend over once more.
- Shop Terminal: Marked as ‘Buy/Sell’, this allows you to entry a fundamental store proper from the Tempest. The inventory gained’t be the identical because the retailers on the bottom in hubs, so remember to nonetheless store round when on the bottom.
- Research & Development: This terminal permits you to spend analysis factors (that are obtained by scanning, so maintain scanning) for brand spanking new weapon, armor and increase blueprints – then develop these blueprints into gear you should utilize.

If you need you may also take your ship to different methods and planets apart from your goal, Eos. You gained’t be capable to land wherever however by scanning planets you’ll uncover sources you should utilize for crafting and world-explaining flavour textual content.
When you’re finished exploring, take your self to Eos.
Arrival at Eos: Site 1
After some extra cutscenes and story you’ll end up in management in the midst of ‘site 1’ in Eos. Things didn’t go too effectively at Site 1 – that a lot is obvious. Follow the navpoint to discover a locked constructing, then observe the navpoint once more to acquire the entry code to unlock the door.
Along the best way you could discover human our bodies – for those who scan one, you’ll kick off a sidequest – Task: Naming the Dead.
The story steps listed here are fairly easy. Enter the locked constructing and head by means of studying logs on computer systems and customarily investigating the scenario. Soon sufficient you’ll want to go to the facility relay indicated in your map with a purpose to restore energy to Site 1. When you attain there you’ll study one human but lives – and by turning the facility on you’ll entice the eye of the Kett, the alien race you met again on Habitat 7. Activate the facility anyway by telling the survivor you’ll care for the kett.
Activate the 2 energy turbines. You’ll have to scan one after which hack it with a purpose to get it working. Once each are lively, the Kett will arrive. Take them down with the identical abilities you practised again on Habitat 7. If you haven’t but spent your ability factors, now’s the time to get to it.
Meet the Nomad
Before you’ll be able to actually proceed you’re going to want a automobile. In the north-east of web site 1 you’ll discover a huge cargo container. Scan it to seek out there’s a Nomad automobile inside. This state-of-the-art unhealthy boy is your transport. You want a code to unlock it – these colonists certain love their password safety.
To get the code head to the waypoint indicated to decrease a ahead station. This is mostly a tutorial in disguise: ahead stations are dropped into the world and act as locations you’ll be able to replenish well being and consumables, plus they act as quick journey factors. Note what they appear like and their image on the map – for those who see a holographic define of one in every of these or a white icon of 1 on the map you need to head there to deploy that station so it may be used as a quick journey level.
The ahead station provides you the code you want. Now go get the Nomad. The nomad provides you freedom! Time to make use of it.
Investigate the Strange Signal
There’s a sign on Eos that’s of curiosity – and now it’s time to go discover it. From the ahead station, hop into the Nomad and head east. Remember that the Nomad has two-wheel and six-wheel drive – you’ll wish to swap to six-wheel drive to climb steep slopes then change again to two-wheel drive if you wish to get your pace up.
It’s not advisable to get out of the Nomad between locations proper now – Eos is soaked in radiation, and also you don’t wish to eat that up. Anyway, you’ll be able to’t actually miss your goal – it’s an enormous, black alien monolith that dominates the skyline close to Site 1. It additionally has a beautiful shiny waypoint.
When you get there, hop out. Shields put up across the monolith imply it’s protected so that you can exit the Nomad with out it draining your life help right here. Use your scanner liberally to choose up a lot of analysis factors. Interact with the alien console after which head – as Liam suggests – up the scaffolding to get excessive on the monolith. Up there you’ll discover a unusual image. Scan it. You may also discover in scanner view that a cable goes from this glyph right down to the alien console. Get used to this: you’re going to trace glyphs by means of these cables typically within the coming hours.
Once the glyph has been scanned, drop down and use the alien interface. A cutscene ensues, and also you meet a brand new ally.
After this you’ll face some fight in opposition to some new robotic enemies. If you will have entry to any tech abilities, do not forget that they’re extra helpful in opposition to enemies of the artificial selection. When these foes are killed it’s effectively value you taking the time to scan them – whilst you can solely scan every sort of enemy as soon as, the primary time you encounter and scan them nets you numerous analysis information.
We now have a brand new goal – to activate extra of those unusual monoliths to see what they do. Here’s hoping they don’t blow up the planet…
