Bioware details upcoming updates for Mass Effect Andromeda

BioWare will release an update for Mass Effect Andromeda on Thursday, version 1.05, and today the developer detailed some of the changes coming to the controversial game in the near future.

On Thursday, the following items will be updated:

Allowing you to skip ahead when travelling between planets in the galaxy map
Increasing the inventory limits
Improving the appearance of eyes for humans and asari characters
Decreasing the cost of remnant decryption keys and making them more accessible at merchants
Improving localized voice over lip sync
Fixing Ryder’s movements when running in a zig zag pattern
Improving matchmaking and latency in multiplayer

The company added that these other items will be addressed in updates over the next few months:

More options and variety in the character creator
Improvements to hair and general appearance for characters
Ongoing improvements to cinematic scenes and animations
Improvements to male romance options for Scott Ryder
Adjustments to conversations with Hainly Abrams

It is good to see BioWare tackle the poor reception of Andromeda head on. Of course, the game probably shouldn’t have launched like it did and would have benefited from a few more months in development, releasing during the summer instead of a very crowded March, but it is what it is.

So long as BioWare makes good on these promises, I’m sure Andromeda will be a well-rounded, easy to recommend action RPG by year’s end.
