Mass Effect Andromeda's lead designer has revealed that the anticipated RPG's day one patch will not address the game's sometimes quite freakish set of animations, which have been widely mocked online.
Indeed Andromeda's character models and general animations - walking, talking...you name it - have come under heavy fire, and though BioWare will no doubt move to rectify the situation in due time, don't expect those improvements to begin rolling out on day one.
Though it likely won't fix the issues now bugging a lot of the games dedicated fanbase on Reddit, Frazier has confirmed that the team is looking to add new skin tones to the game's character creation mode in a new patch. Twitter seems be keeping itself amused right now with all the Mass Effect Andromeda trash talk. If you're an EA or Origin Access member, you'll be able to download a 10-hour trial of Mass Effect Andromeda. Of course, as is par for the course on the Internet, fans have been expressing criticism in the form of memes, which managed to elicit a response from Andromeda producer Michael Gamble to say that he and his team have appreciated the feedback so far.
Andromeda's lead designer, Ian Frazier, responded to a Tweet asking if the day one update will improve the character models by saying, "At day 1?" Subscribers can now play Andromeda's first two missions, plus the multiplayer, before it launches next week.
And BioWare isn't doing anything to correct their shenanigans.
