Bioware Examining Fan Complaints For Future Mass Effect Andromeda Patch

by Al McCarthy


Mass Effect Andromeda has arrived.  As such, the game has recieved praise and criticism alike and now Bioware is looking to patch many of the problems that players have with the game.  In the near future, there very well may be updates to Mass Effect Andromeda that remedy the animation bugs and limited character creator.

Ian Frazier was on Twitter recently discussing Bioware’s plans for a future Mass Effect Andromeda patch and while fielding fan questions about facial animations among other complaints.  Frazier’s reply: “We’re looking at patching lots of issues and want to strongly support the game moving forward.  I can’t say more just yet.”

But he did say more, the developer continued to respond to questions on the social network and some of them came down to very specific options for the game.  For example the character creator, Frazier said that while ‘he can’t promise anything,’ Bioware is examining “various options for making it better.”

The character creator for Mass Effect Andromeda has been lauded by many as there are very limited options (especially skin tones) when it comes to creating your space-faring Pathfinder.

While there has been a lot of outrage by fans and critics, Bioware’s latest has been a polarizing release.  The game currently sits at a 75 (PS4) on Metacritic (77 for XB1/78 for PC) , far below the scores achieved by the first trilogy of games.
