Mass Effect: Andromeda Update 1.06 is rolling out now across PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The game has improved a lot since launch, with stability and quality of life improvements making their way in via previous patches. So what does update 1.06 do? Check out the patch notes for the details.
According to Bioware’s official Mass Effect: Andromeda Update 1.06 patch notes, the update will do ta whole lot of things, especially surrounding performance.

Various improvements to cinematic scenes. Conversation options will no longer appear “greyed out” if new content is available. Improved legibility of subtitles. Maximum Nexus Level increased to 29. And single player balance improvements at higher difficulties.”
