Andromeda Lead Designer Says No Animation Fixes In Day One Patch

Nvidia has released a Mass Effect: Andromeda video showing off gameplay running in 4K resolution.

Taking all of this into consideration, it seems as if BioWare is doing all it can to make sure that Mass Effect: Andromeda launches as smoothly as possible on its first official day of availability. One Twitter user wanted to know if the obvious animation breakdowns seen in the game - as uploaded by those playing advanced copies - would be fixed with a day-one patch. "That ship has sailed". Here's hoping the developer fixes this before the game launches next week.

Unfortunately, we can't say too much about the game just yet, but it's clear that these are being way over-sensationalised and won't define the entire experience. The game already runs at 30 FPS so any further dips feel like you temporarily lose control of your character.

Mass Effect: Andromeda-in its current state-suffers from significant frame rate fluctuations on Xbox One.

He also added that the multiplayer sound issues are "under investigation".

Those lucky enough to secure an advance copy of Mass Effect Andromeda have all had the same thought cross their mind: "What the fuck is wrong with their faces?!"

Andromeda uses the same system employed for Mass Effect 3, with the games multiplayer mode offering gamers the chance to buy in-game items using real world money.

If you decide to buy the full game once it comes out, all of your progress (including achievements) will carry over.
