As such, we’ve collected all possible romance options in Mass Effect: Andromeda, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these characters!

There are ten romance options in Mass Effect: Andromeda, with four characters that can be romanced by both twins, and six characters that have a single preference of either male of female Ryder.

How to Romance Characters

Second, if the character you want to romance in Mass Effect: Andromeda is a squadmate, you will need to complete their Loyalty Mission if they have one.

Third, ensure you read all the emails that are sent to you by the character you are romancing. This will help you secure further romance options. Finally, you are able to flirt and romance as many other characters as you please, but once you commit to exclusivity, you will not be able to flirt with anyone else. Well, except Keri, because she doesn’t care.
