BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn laid out the plans to make such improvements in a blog post on the Mass Effect Andromeda website, highlighting the notion that they're taking the time to pore over feedback to make the corrections to the game that are so desperately needed.
For Patch 1.05, coming Thursday April 6th, players will see mostly technical improvements of crashes and overall game performance.
Besides the animation improvements, skipping the planet travel will be a blessing.
The video is about seven minutes long and you can check it out above.
As was mentioned, one of the more pressing concerns that fans have found with Andromeda is the serious downgrade to character facial animations, which, in many places, seem worse than previous installments in the franchise.
Improving the appearance of eyes for humans and asari characters.
Bioware has announced its plans to add new weapons in "Mass Effect: Andromeda".
Decreasing the cost of remnant decryption keys and making them more affordable. By comparison, there are five male-female romance options, three of which are Ryder's own squadmates.
BioWare also promised additional patches and regular support in the next two months to cover additional in-game issues.
For some reason, facial animations were not a high priority to the management team, spending more time polishing the gameplay and other aspects like vehicles.
Additionally, there's a side character you meet named Hainly Abrams who awkwardly reveals she's a trans woman while dropping her own dead name (a term that refers to the name a trans person is assigned at birth). BioWare will also be adding more cosmetic items to the single-player campaign for free.
For multiplayer, over the same timeframe, we're going to continue to build on the APEX missions that have been running since launch. Flynn explains that there are a lot more things coming in the mid- and long-term, and we're looking forward to seeing the next big chunk of content coming down the pipe.
