Mass Effect Andromeda Animations Won't Be Addressed Before Launch

Mass Effect Andromeda Animations Won't Be Addressed Before Launch

Most believe that the games animations and character models were a little sloppy and social media was overrun with plenty of freakish clips taken from people playing the game before the release date with the help of EA Access. One Twitter user wanted to know if the obvious animation breakdowns seen in the game - as uploaded by those playing advanced copies - would be fixed with a day-one patch.

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. No, that ship has sailed.

Mass Effect Andromeda comes out on March 21 in North America and March 23 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

But it looks like Bioware might be set to fix some aspects of the game further down the line. You can tackle them personally as multiplayer games, or you can send a strike team to try and get it done over a variable chunk of real time, much like War Table operations in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

If you're not already an EA Access subscriber, you can buy a month-long subscription for pretty cheap. It's worth noting that this isn't the full game, and once you reach a certain point in the main story, you'll hit a brick wall in your space adventure.
