Mass Effect Andromeda launched earlier this year with mixed reception partly because of its lackluster facial animations and other issues that the studio is currently fixing through new updates. According to a report, these problems were due to the fact that the majority of the game was developed in 1.5 years. Now, the studio has revealed that fixes for Asari characters are not in the cards.
The majority of the Asari characters in Mass Effect Andromeda are same in terms of design and facial animations and according to Bioware, they have no plans to fix it. The news comes from game’s producer Fernando Melo who revealed that fixes for Asari race will not be coming as they have other issues on high priority to fix.
This might comes as a disappointment for fans as the game was showing a lot of improvements with subsequent updates from Bioware. However, there is still a lot that needs to be done if Andromeda has a chance to stand beside previous entries in the franchise.
Also, Bioware has teased a potential Quarian DLC for Mass Effect Andromeda. Quarians were left out in Mass Effect Andromeda but, it was established in the game that the race is expected in the future due to delay in the arrival of their ark.
Also, according to a report, Mass Effect franchise has been put on ICE for the time being. The report suggests that Bioware Montreal, Mass Effect Andromeda’s developer, has been turned into a support studio.
However, this does not mean that there won’t be another game in Mass Effect franchise but, the studio will let the series sit for a while rather than working on the next iteration immediately.
Mass Effect Andromeda is a third-person action adventure game developed by Bioware for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
