Bioware Details Upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda Fixes

Mass Effect Andromeda Could Have Increased Text Size In The Future

Preview pages from the first issue revealed our main character to be Tiran Kandros, who appears in Mass Effect: Andromeda as the leader of the Nexus' civilian militia (the Andromeda Initiative has no formal armed forces). That being said, the developer has promised to discuss its plans to implement patch fixes on April 4, so fans won't have long to wait to see what new updates will be coming the the game.

In a post on the game's official website, BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn confirmed that "over the next two months we'll be rolling out additional patches which will go even deeper and look to improve several areas of the game". These include more options and variety in the character creator (sorely needed), "ongoing improvements" to animations and character appearance, and more sexy time options for Scott Ryder. Perhaps Mass Effect: Discovery will show us exactly how he made that decision. They'll be running more APEX missions, and adding new characters, weapons, and maps.

There are a few other things in the announcement (like more free cosmetic items in single player), but perhaps the most significant thing is what's not listed: there's no hint of DLC or future plans for the game.

If you've been paying attention to our recent coverage, then you'll know Mass Effect: Andromeda is a mess.

The facial animations of Mass Effect Andromeda have been the subject of controversy since release. If these patches work out the way they sound, we might have an nearly entirely new game on our hands.

They normally have a great reputation for responding to fans, but I was beginning to think that perhaps these problems were just too big. On Thursday, we kick off the first of three new chapters centered around The Remnant Investigation.

We talk about X5 Ghost, the rifle you can see in the image below and that during the game is only seen in cinematic scenes, being impossible to get it to use it in combat. We're listening, and we're committed to partnering with you as we continue to explore the Andromeda galaxy together.
