BioWare continues to smooth out Mass Effect: Andromeda

0

Patch 1.06 is live on all platforms

If you aren't playing Mass Effect: Andromeda but still catch yourself keeping tabs on the patches, you and me both, buddy. BioWare has detailed its latest patch and efforts to balance the multiplayer.

Generally speaking, it's a lot of fixes for things that needed fixing: improvements to cinematic scenes, "particularly in the opening hours of the game"; conversation paths not being 'greyed out' if new dialog is available; and SAM shutting up about unread emails that don't actually exist, to name a few. But there are also quality-of-life changes like extra autosave slots and a toggle for motion blur.

As a bonus, "Those of you who have the Deluxe or Super Deluxe edition will also receive two custom Nomad skins, a new casual Pathfinder outfit, and an exclusive multiplayer pack with a high chance of receiving an ultra-rare item."
