Last week, Bioware told fans of Mass Effect: Andromeda that they are aware of the many problems that has been reported to them and are working to get it fixed. Last night they detailed a patch that will address some of the major issues that has been plaguing the game. Patch 1.05 will be made available on 6 April.
Some of the fixes include the following according to the official Mass Effect site:

- 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
Bioware also added that the following will be looked at in the coming 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’s good that Bioware is working to improve Mass Effect: Andromeda. It’s a damn good game that’s unfortunately burdened by technical issues and poor quality control. I’ve played about 40 hours of ME: A and can honestly say I haven’t experienced too many issues, although, they are there. Hopefully, not for long.
