Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch – Animations, Romance, and Character Creation Changes Inbound

Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch 1.05

Mass Effect: Andromeda has been out for a couple weeks and players have spent countless hours exploring the vast galaxy. However, there have been bugs along the way, which can be expected of any newly released title. There is no need to fear, though, as BioWare has just detailed a new patch that will go live on April 6. The update will be tackling some of the issues that have plagued players’ experiences, such as animations, character creation, and even romance options. Here is the list of what Andromeda Patch 1.05 will be fixing:

  • Improved tutorial placement
  • Single player balance changes: Ammo crates, armor, weapons, nomad, profiles, attacks, and progression
  • Multiplayer balance changes: Weapons, cover, and enemies (check back for detailed notes on balance changes)
  • Added option to skip autopilot sequences in the galaxy map
  • Improved logic, timing, and continuity for relationships and story arcs
  • Improved lip-sync and facial acting during conversations, including localized VO
  • Fixed various collision issues
  • Fixed bugs where music or VO wouldn’t play or wasn’t correct
  • Fixed issue where global squad mate banter sometimes wasn’t firing on UNCs
  • Fixed issue where player was unable to access the Remnant Console Interface after failing decryption multiple times
  • Fixed issue where fast travel is sometimes disabled after recruiting Drack until the player reloads a save
  • Fixed issue where Ryder can become stuck in the start of Biotic Charge Pose
  • Fixes issues related to some saves
  • Fixed issue where objective sometimes becomes un-interactable for players in multiplayer
  • Streaming and stability improvements

It really seems that BioWare has been paying attention to fans’ concerns, as is evident by the upcoming Andromeda patch. In fact, Aaryn Flynn even said, “Since launch, our team has been poring over your comments and feedback, looking to discover what you like about the game, as well as areas we can evolve or improve.” Flynn also mentioned that BioWare will be releasing an additional Andromeda patch(s) over the next two months that will cover other areas of concern. Here’s that list:

  • More options and variety in the character creator
  • Improvements to hair and general appearance for characters
  • Ongoing improvements to cinematic scenes and animations
  • Improvements to male romance options for Scott Ryder
  • Adjustments to conversations with Hainly Abrams

Much like the Andromeda patch that will be released on April 6, the upcoming updates will also improve performance and stability. Flynn also spoke about the multiplayer aspect of the title, and that the team will “continue to build on the APEX missions.” Aaryn also mentioned that Patch 1.05 won’t be the only thing being released on April 6:

We’ll be adding new maps, characters, and weapons. On Thursday, we kick off the first of three new chapters centered around The Remnant Investigation.”

Everything Aaryn detailed can be found right here. Will the upcoming Andromeda patch solve a bulk of the issues players have experienced in the first two weeks?
