The contents of this new patch might seem a bit overshadowed by the fact that the company behind the popular space opera franchise has already released a huge patch not that long ago, which focused on multiplayer aspects. The new patch is 1.07 and features a couple of things but doesn’t seem to bring and huge modifications upon first inspection.
The new Mass Effect Andromeda 1.07 patch has been referred to as a hotfix, meaning that it is not meant to bring new features but rather to tweak some minor problems existent in the game. The patch has been released for all major platforms meaning Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and of course, PC. This has been further corroborated by the producer behind the game, which has taken to Twitter to assure players that it’s not something major. On the social media platform, Michael Gamble said that there are only “three notable fixes” within the new patch, and that it’s just a hotfix.
So what are these changes? Many might be wondering the same thing, so here is what players can expect from the new patch in terms of notable modifications:
- The Athletic outfit has been made available mid-playthrough
- The placement for the game’s UI has been fixed for resolutions that exceed 1080p
- A recurring crash problem with the SOS quest has been taken care of
The players that have the game on PC should know that in case any problems occur for them while trying to install this new patch, they should try going offline and then back online or restarting Origin. That being said, there’s not a lot more to dissect from the new patch since these three fixes are the only things that would catch anyone’s attention.
The main reason for which there are no more tweaks and fixes going on with this new patch is because of the previous patch, 1.06, featured a very long list of modifications that were made to the game. It was a huge touch on multiplayer but a ton of single player stuff was also thrown into the mix.
In the end, it would be fair to say that the patch focused on both aspects of the game thus players that were looking for a better experience in either spectrum were pleased. That being said, it’s great to see that BioWare is still working to solve the various problems that have been reported or discovered regarding Mass Effect Andromeda. The lengthy anticipation of the game combined with the various technical difficulties it posed made the follow-up to the beloved series a bit underwhelming at its launch. It would seem however that things might be going in the right direction now that most of the major problems have been addressed by the developer.
