Mass Effect Andromeda launches this week on Xbox One, PC, and PS4, but it hasn’t been achieving critical approval expected of the series. While every other Mass Effect game resides in the 90s on Metacritic, Andromeda is currently sitting in the 70s, as reviewers cite the litany of bugs plaguing the fun. Luckily, it seems as though BioWare isn’t ready to call it quits.
Mass Effect Andromeda just picked up a 775MB patch on Xbox One, bringing it to version 1.04 in-lines with PS4 and PC.
The update features “various improvements and bug fixes.” I haven’t been able to find more particular patch notes at this time, but the fixes as described by the same version update on the PlayStation 4.
I had heard that an additional patch was on the way, which is why I decided to hold off scoring our review until after the fact.
Most of the issues I discovered in my in-progress Mass Effect Andromeda review pertain to bad frame rate issues on certain planets and in convinced areas, strange character duplication bugs, and various glitches with animations and conversational sequencing.
Mass Effect Andromeda is available now for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
