In fact gamers who do decide to upgrade to the full copy of the game will have their saves transferred over, so you won't have to start all over again.
The timed demo lets players muck about on the planet of Eos in single-player, as well as try out the multiplayer, too. If you're a subscriber to either service and played the Andromeda trial before, so long as you didn't complete the 10 hours you'll be able to pick up where you left off.
Both BioWare and EA will be hoping that this trial manages to give Mass Effect: Andromeda a second lease of life, and perhaps weaken the criticisms that have been levelled against the game.
In an effort to squeeze just a few more sales out of the under-performing Mass Effect: Andromeda, EA have sanctioned a free 10 hour trial for the game.
It's nearly certainly a last ditch effort to build interest in the Mass Effect series' weakest installment, which was panned for weak side quests and glitches. Anyone who took part in the previous trial can join the current offer and use up any free time they have remaining. On PC and Xbox One at the moment is also a discount of about 50%. The trial won't cost you anything and 10 hours is a decent amount of time to get a grip of the game and its mechanics, and how it performs on your system, for example.
