BioWare Confirms That Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Animations Won’t be Fixed in the Day One Patch

Well, that’s a bummer….

BioWare has announced yesterday that a day one patch is incoming for Mass Effect: Andromeda, however, those weird animations you’ve seen popping up on the internet won’t be fixed until down the road.

Detailed on Twitter, lead designer for Mass effect: Andromeda Ian Frazier, stated that the boat for animation fixes have long gone sailed off. The day one patch will improve on bugs and glitches the game faces, however, if you happen to be playing via EA Access or Origin, the patch has already been implemented.

Animations are a slight distraction from the latest entry in the Mass Effect series. Andromeda seems to be expanding a new story, characters, and gameplay mechanics, but it seems the gaming community are really discouraged by the overwhelming memes from the games thus far.

YouTuber xLetalis posted a video a couple of days prior to the screenshots, comparing Mass Effect: Andromeda’s animations to the first game which launched just under a decade ago – and let’s just say, the results are gonna amp those critical machines into overdrive. Watch the weird animations here.

Members of EA’s gaming platforms — EA Access (Xbox One) and EA Origin (PC), will be able to start playing the game right now. The trial gives players 10 hours of the game, allowing users to see if the latest installment in the Mass Effect franchise to see of it is a good fit for them or not.

Players will be able to explore plenty of the game as the main full game will be downloaded; try the new heavy combat multiplayer, explore the Nexus, or step into the boots of Ryder and take your first steps in the Andromeda Initiative.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is scheduled to release next week on Tuesday, March 21 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Read up on the latest news for the game right here.
