Mass Effect Andromeda's Animations Will Be Fixed, But Not At Launch

Bioware is aware of the issue, but won't be able to apply fixes with a day one patch.

Mass Effect Andromeda is currently under fire for an underwhelming opening and a host of animation bugs that have appeared in review copies. It's not the best showing for the game, which is intended to be Bioware's next flagship title. Despite that, Mass Effect fans are hoping Andromeda's animation issues can be fixed post-launch.

In a tweet reply to one fan, Bioware lead designer Ian Frazier said that a fix for the animations was coming, but it wouldn't be a day one patch. There is a day one patch for the game though, one that's being included with the current Early Access build on Xbox One and PC.

Are Mass Effect Andromeda's Opening Hours Really That Bad? (Yeah, Kind Of)

Thanks to the game's staggered embargo, the animation issues and poor opening are all that people are talking about as the game heads towards launch. Bioware is probably not happy with that outcome. Mass Effect Andromeda is coming PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on March 21. The first 10 hours of the game are already available to EA Access members.
