Two weeks ago Mass Effect Andromeda released. The opinion on the game has been less than favorable. This is mainly because the game lacks the polish we the community have come to expect from a Bioware title. Bioware has heard your complaints and has been working around the clock to address these issues. The result would be Andromeda’s first major patch.

According to our Bioware’s official Mass Effect website, this patch is the first of many. This update will address many technical issues such as facial animations, optimization, and crashing. Expect this patch to be available for download April 6th, 2017. The only question remains; is it too late? Has the damage already been done? Let us know in the comments below. Full patch notes below as well.
