It’s fair to say that the launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda didn’t go the way BioWare had wanted, as the game failed to recapture all the essence that made the original trilogy special. With that said, the developers were not deterred by this early setback and they were committed to improving the game over the long run. BioWare initially said that they’ll share more about Andromeda’s future on April 4, but they have got the ball rolling by releasing a new patch to fix the game’s awkward facial animations.
Andromeda’s weird animations have gained notoriety even before launch, as the game was turned into a laughing stock with all the memes circulating online. It didn’t go unnoticed by BioWare and they are just glad that they can deliver on their promise to fix the animations. “As much as we enjoyed the attention Andromeda is getting, it’s still imperative for us to uphold the quality of our titles for the better enjoyment of our loyal supporters,” said BioWare GM, Aaryn Flynn. “This is just the beginning of our efforts to support the game as we value our players, and we hope to enhance their experience in playing Andromeda.”
On top of the animation fix, BioWare is also giving out $50 worth of Andromeda Points, the in-game currency to everyone. “We always appreciate the support from our players, and this is the least we can do to compensate them for trusting BioWare,” said Flynn. You can log on to BioWare's official site and follow the instructions stated there to claim your Points. Just make sure you stay calm after receiving such a generous reward from BioWare.
