Ways to Get Ready For Mass Effect: Andromeda's Imminent Release

In response to a fan question on Twitter about whether animations would be addressed, BioWare lead designer Ian Frazier said: "At day 1?"

The tweets embedded below are just one example of how stilted the facial animations look in Mass Effect Andromeda. Per Twitter, the game's Lead Designer Ian Frazier conceded that the day one patch is already in the can, and that any fixes will have to be implemented via a future update. We've been playing Mass Effect: Andromeda for the past 48 hours and it's clear that the game suffers from significant problems on the console. He also assuaged fans' concerns about the sound issues persisting in Andromeda's multiplayer mode, as the problem is now "under investigation". "We'll have more patches later on, exactly what goes into them is still in discussion".

Taking all of this into consideration, it seems as if BioWare is doing all it can to make sure that Mass Effect: Andromeda launches as smoothly as possible on its first official day of availability.

A lot of the gifs below speak for themselves, but it appears that there's definitely something janky going on with some of the Mass Effect Andromeda, when it comes to Mass Effect Andromeda. As it's been the case with other big games recently, Bioware is launching a companion mobile app that will help players stay engaged with the game's universe even when away from their console or PC.
