Mass Effect: Andromeda has been out for 2 weeks and despite a rocky launch, fans have been enthusiastically fighting aliens and colonizing planets throughout the game’s expansive universe. Players have noted some annoying bugs and game mechanics, which Bioware has said they are aware of and will be fixing as soon as they can. Yesterday they announced on their blog that this week they’ll be rolling out a patch to to fix bugs and implement some quality of life improvements for gameplay and matchmaking. The full patch notes are below but feel free to view the source on their blog.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.


In the new patch (1.05) for Mass Effect: Andromeda, our focus was on bug fixes and improvements to the player experience.

We’ve introduced a number of balance changes to single player and multiplayer, and resolved some issues with saves not working properly. We’ve also improved lip-sync and facial acting during some conversations, and have implemented a much-requested change that allows players to skip the autopilot sequences in the galaxy map.

Patch 1.05 will begin to roll out on Thursday, April 6th. We’ll continue to listen to your feedback, and we thank you for working with us to create an even better Mass Effect: Andromeda experience.
