Currently, fans and reviewers have noted many issues in Mass Effect Andromeda trailers and its 10-hour early access trial. Mass Effect Andromeda lead designer Ian Frazier has answered many questions on his official Twitter account to help fans with the issues they encounter in-game. Frazier also confirmed some fixes and features that’ll be included in the upcoming game patches.
Frazier has been answering some questions about Mass Effect Andromeda on his Twitter account. Players have also been reporting some problems, which could be patched shortly after the full game launches on March 21. Here are some issues that Frazier has acknowledged which may get patched soon:
- Positional Audio issue on PC and Xbox One
- Multiplayer Lag
- Missing Premium Edition Loot on Xbox One
- Map Screen Exit Issue
- Color Preset on Outfits Issue
Additionally, Frazier has also confirmed some changes that they’re already considering to include in a future patch. Most of these changes are visual settings concerning character creation and graphics settings. Here are some of the changes they’re considering to include in a future patch:
- Mid-game appearance customization
- Mid-game face customization
- Pale skin tone in character customization
- More visible hair highlights in character customization
- Motion blur configuration through in-game options
Day 1 Patch Already Included In Trial
Frazier also said that a Day 1 patch has already been included in the early access version Mass Effect Andromeda. The Day 1 patch is around 2GB, according to fans. However, Mass Effect Andromeda may need more than a Day 1 patch to fix the issues that the fans are facing.
Other Fan Gripes
Mass Effect Andromeda is also being ridiculed for its off-putting animations and weird facial expressions. Some characters’ movement animations look uncanny and silly, while some expressions rarely convey any emotion. Such problems could discourage players from buying the game on its release. At best, fans could wait at least a few weeks or months before buying or for EA to announce a large Mass Effect Andromeda update to improve the animations, since Frazier said there will be no patch to fix the animations on launch day.
Mass Effect Andromeda So Far
The upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda is a follow-up to the series after almost half a decade. The story is standalone and fresh as the characters are on the Andromeda Galaxy instead of the Milky Way. Many of the usual characters and enemies may not appear in this entry. However, some fans have noted that there’s throwback content in the major areas of the game. For now, we’ll have to see what happens on March 21 — if these bugs will continue to plague this new release or not. Stay updated with more Mass Effect Andromeda news here on TheBitBag.
