In a blog post published on August 19th, BioWare announced update 1.10 was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Stated in the press release, “Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.”
Since January, BioWare has been through hell and back with the heavy blow from players and fans alike who were down right disappointed with the facial animation issues they faced shortly after release. Some players are distraught by the news but continue to look pass the flaw.
very bummed about Mass Effect Andromeda no longer receiving updates, hoping BioWare comes back stronger than ever. :-(— Natalie (@natattouille) August 21, 2017
While we’re sad to see BioWare stop updates, they did make it clear that their multiplayer team will continue to provide details for support and content including new multiplayer missions, character kits, and what we can expect for the upcoming N7 Day. Recently returned general manager, Casey Hudson, still has faith.
Personal Take: After all of these years, I’ve never played a Mass Effect game until I picked up ME 2 in January 2017 and finished it in about a week. Immediately after, I bought ME 3, finished that in 2 weeks. The two that I played were a pleasure to adventure into, I’ve never done that with any other game. With ME: Andromeda, I’ll be honest, I’ve played Andromeda for maybe 8 hours, exploring. I have not finished it. It’s not because of the bugs, awkward facial animations, or lack of story, no. I grew up with buggy games and awkward in-game moments, these are still classics for me. After the reviews of Andromeda, I waited about a month and I still bought it! What made me give ME: Andromeda a shot was the nostalgia and the feeling of hearing about a new game was enough, nostalgia was missing. I have to admit, I did not finish Andromeda because of that reason… I didn’t finish it because Andromeda deserves respect and a fair shot from us players and fans. I haven’t given it that and when I do, my energy and time will absolutely be poured into every detail and moment and I’m sure I will love it.
