Mass Effect Andromeda Early Access Patch 1.05 Releases Today

by Al McCarthy


Mass Effect Andromeda released a short while ago as what many have described as a work in progress.  While many parts of the game can be praised, others simply aren’t up to the typical standards that Bioware has set for its games.

Today, April 6th will see the release of Patch 1.05.  The first of what could be many patches if they’re to go in and fix all of the complaints that players have about the game.  In today’s patch, there are numerous improvements which we’ll include in the full patch notes below.  The most notable, however, are improvements to some of the major complaints that players had about the initial release with fixes to facial animations and Ryder’s odd movements that are possible by running in a zig zag pattern.
