Mass Effect: Andromeda is offering both gated access to the single player and unrestricted access to the multiplayer for the upcoming EA Access. The EA/Origin Access trial for Andromeda will become available on March 16 for Xbox One and PC. No version of EA Access is available on PlayStation 4. The game is set to come out on March 21.
@Xartain you can play it all in sp if you want, but it is gated (you can't cont story after a point, but can explore or restart for ex)— Fernando Melo (@DiscoBabaloo) March 5, 2017
This comes after news of the cancelled beta test for the multiplayer.
In addition to this bit of news, Fernado also revealed information about how some multiplayer missions can link with the singleplayer which can award loot boxes (RNG) in addition to sending AI in your place to complete these linked missions. The short of it is if you complete multiplayer it can aid singleplayer.

The final bit of news is how the multiplayer is set to be like Mass Effect 3 when it comes to content and maps, offering free maps to all, removing all fears of paywalls for the multiplayer.
