Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch Cures Crazy Eyes And Delivers Significant Gameplay Improvements
The sad reality of gaming is that it is not uncommon for a title to ship with bugs. Some have a few crawling around while others are infested to the point where even the Orkin man would cringe. After plenty of hype and anticipation, Mass Effect: Andromeda fell somewhere in between, leaving many gamers feeling disgruntled with the state it shipped in. If you stopped playing because of it, you may want to give the game another shot.
Bioware promised to fix a host of issues with its 1.05 patch, which is now available. More than just lip service, it seems the patch has done a lot of good for the game, in particular with the way characters' eyeballs looked. Prior to the patch, there were complaints of creepy looking stares. After applying the patch, staring into the windows of a character's soul looks much more realistic. Have a look at this comparison posted to Twitter:
Look at the huge difference. Man that is so much better. I hope it's replicated on my Ryder. pic.twitter.com/a3gQCwqshS— Alex Ryder (@Alex_N7_) April 6, 2017
Bioware also promised a bunch of other fixes and improvements with its 1.05 patch, such as balance changes to single player and multiplayer gameplay, better lip syncing, higher inventory limits, and generally better performance, to note some of the highlights in the release notes.
