Reports have been circulating the internet that Bioware has put Mass Effect franchise on ICE for the time being, but the studio is still supporting Mass Effect Andromeda through new updates. Now Bioware has rolled a Mass Effect Andromeda Patch 1.07 that brings fixes for crashes and more.
As reported by Gamespot, Mass Effect Andromeda Patch 1.07 brings “Various bug fixes and stability improvements”. Game producer, Michael Gamble, also posted on twitter saying that the patch is basically just a hotfix. The update brings fixes for the crash with the SOS quest and a problem with >1080p UI placement. Furthermore, the patch also makes the athletic outfit available mid-playthrough.
The patch has been rolled out for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. According to Gamble, if users are facing issues on the PC then run Origin in the offline mode and launch the game and again go online this should let you download the update. Another fix for the issue is to restart Origin.
Bioware has been working on a new IP for quite some time which was scheduled to launch until MArch 2018. However, Bioware has delayed the game and according to EA, it has nothing to do with Mass Effect Andromeda’s mixed reception.
During the earnings call, EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, confirmed that Mass Effect Andromeda’s mixed reception has nothing to do with the delay of Bioware’s new IP. While he did not reveal any specifics he said that the game has been delayed in part “to further develop the live service component”.
We’re very pleased with the progress of our new action IP from BioWare. The design is stunning. Gameplay mechanics are excellent, and the action will be exhilarating. The game is built around a live service, and through our creative process, we decided to add more to the disruptive new social design for our players.
Mass Effect Andromeda is an action-adventure RPG developed by Bioware for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
