Andromeda May Get A New Rifle That's Only Been Shown in Cutscenes

The first planned patch, 1.05, debuts on April 6 and addresses one of the most visible problems plaguing Mass Effect: Andromeda right now: animation issues.

Turns out BioWare is issuing a huge first patch and it's addressing nearly everything, including the bad animation. Today, they've made good on their promise, with general manager Aaryn Flynn announcing a series of patches and updates that'll improve on the game. Those include giving people more options in character creation, making improvements to all of the characters' hair and general appearance, improving some cinematic scenes and animations, and improving the male romance options for Scott Ryder.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

It stuck out to a number of fans (and news writers, looking for clues) pre-release, and many of us have been vaguely wondering where to get hold of it in the game.

Apple Reportedly Looking into "Premium" 3-Channel TV Bundle
Starz, Showtime, and HBO all sell subscriptions through their mobile apps, at cost of $8.99, $10.99, and $14.99. The three channels are now being sold individually by Apple to the users of Apple TV and iOS devices.

Do these fixes make you feel better about Mass Effect Andromeda? Robertson says he spoke to his sources within the studio on condition of anonymity, and they allege that BioWare heavily relied on the new Cyberscan technology instead of employing artists, and outsourced the work quite a bit.

Mass Effect Andromeda's elusive X5 ghost rifle may actually become a thing. Alongside Thursday's patch, BioWare will also kick off the first of three new chapters focused on The Remnant Investigation.

The last is particularly important-although we ignored multiplayer in our preliminary review and likely won't touch it in our final review, it's proving to be very popular among the Ars Technica Andromeda player group.

Flynn closes, "We want to hear from you about your experiences, both what you love about the game and what you'd like to see changed". We're listening, and we're committed to partnering with you as we continue to explore the Andromeda galaxy together.
