During the Game Awards 2016, Bioware revealed the five-minute gameplay trailer for their upcoming game, Mass Effect Andromeda. While the gaming community was very excited for the new trailer but many were not pleased with Sara Ryder’s facial performance.

Shortly after the trailer for Mass Effect Andromeda went live fans raised their concern over the lackluster facial animation to which the developers assured fans that the facial animation is still being polished.

Sara Ryder is awesome. Strong, funny, and adventurous. Sorry there's a facial performance bug that lets her down here. We'll improve it

Recently, Aaryn Flynn revealed that Mass Effect Andromeda will run at 900p resolution on PlayStation 4 and at 720p resolution on Xbox One. While the resolution might be low but this sacrifice in resolution will make up in frames per second, as the game will run at 60 FPS on both consoles.

Also, a new gameplay footage for the game will be revealed during the CES 2017 event. Bioware revealed that during NVIDIA’s CES keynote, the company will dedicate a portion of the presentation to showcase a brand new gameplay footage from the upcoming Mass Effect game.

Mass Effect Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game to not launch for legacy consoles, which means the game will take full advantage of the current gen consoles. BioWare’s Michael Gamble recently detailed the enhancements for the game on current gen consoles.

In Andromeda, that’s totally different. You look up the windscreen of the Tempest, and space is rendered in front of you 180 degrees. If you go to the back of the Tempest, you’ll see that the star that’s behind the ship is actually there, reflecting light beautifully on the conference room in the Tempest.

Mass Effect Andromeda is an open-world action RPG in development at Bioware and will launch in March 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
