BioWare Outsourced Mass Effect Andromeda Animation Work, Relied Heavily on New Technology

Bioware has come with a new bunch of details on the Mass Effect: Andromeda which has a mix of both good and bad elements.

Mass Effect: Andromeda has received a lot of feedback consisting of mixed reviews, and gamers' reactions have led BioWare to release a statement last week saying that the game's developers are now gathering information, and that they're also planning solutions to improve the game.

BioWare also promised additional patches and regular support in the next two months to cover additional in-game issues.

Among other highlights, the update includes better lip syncing and facial animations for characters, increased inventory space, more accessible remnant decryption keys, along with some improvements for human and Asari eyes.

On the game's official website, the General Manager Aaron Flynn has posted a comprehensive roadmap anticipating the arrival of many improvements. Those include giving people more options in character creation, making improvements to all of the characters' hair and general appearance, improving some cinematic scenes and animations, and improving the male romance options for Scott Ryder.

Shott said he also intentionally crafted significant fees for opening a dispensary or begin a medical marijuana growing operation. Cheryl Glenn is the chair of the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland and House bill's sponsor.

Mass Effect Andromeda has been under fire since its release for its plethora of bugs and awkward animation. There will be a big set of new APEX multiplayer missions, but there's no word on single-player expansions. What you'd expect if you played the multiplayer in Mass Effect 3, really.

Looks like we'll see some adjustments to the facial animations, but Flynn assured consumers that more patches will roll out over the coming months for further improvements.

Finally, the Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer will continue to receive free updates.

Mass Effect Andromeda is, sadly, a rather buggy game. Two more chapters are planned, as well as more playable characters, maps, and weapons.
