It’s been two weeks now since Mass Effect: Andromeda was released, and things…have not gone quite as hoped. The game’s numbers have been solid, but initial critical response was poorer than expected. It hasn’t been a complete disaster, but the incredibly high expectations were not being met. And while a game being released with its fair share of problems is nothing new, we thankfully live in a time where many of these problems can be remedied. Something that developer BioWare is indeed working on.
The company has posted a lengthy update in which they detail some of the improvements that will be made in upcoming patches beginning with one tomorrow. You can read all about these fixes below.
When it comes to video games I’m much more into the single-player campaigns, only dabbling in the multiplayer offerings. Every once in a while, however, I do get fully sucked into a particularly addicting multiplayer mode, and sometimes spend far more time playing that than the campaign.
One such game was Mass Effect 3, which for me personally has one of the very best and most addictive multiplayer modes ever created. So as the next game in the series, Mass Effect: Andromeda, was announced and began making its long trip to us, one of my biggest concerns was whether they would mess with the multiplayer too much.
With the game now only one week away, the fourth in a series of gameplay videos has been released. This one previews the game’s multiplayer action, and you can see how it looks below.
We still have to wait a week and a half or so until we finally get our hands on the next game in the Mass Effect franchise, Mass Effect: Andromeda. But to help add to your excitement level (if that’s even possible), a launch trailer for the game has been released online a little early.
The trailer is pretty straight forward. It’s a cinematic, touching on your character’s story and featuring some of the game’s other characters, including more peeks at the primary antagonist the Archon, all set to the song “Human” by Rag’n’Bone Man.

The latest gameplay video for Mass Effect: Andromeda, which—hold on to your butts—will become a real part of your life during the month that we are in right this very moment, has been released online.
If you’re all about the combat, then the first video and second video in the gameplay series are for you. But if you’re more about the exploration of various alien worlds and discovering new things, then you my friend are in the right place. The new video found below dives into how you’ll explore the various worlds and what you might find there. It also touches briefly on two things that stood out to me personally as a Mass Effect fan: the first is being able to see the places you visit outside your ship’s windows in real-time, which is amazing, and also having to choose who of your people to wake from cryosleep at various times depending on what your needs are. An exciting new feature which will surely lead many to push the pause button and head off on a mission to retrieve snacks while they ponder the choice that must be made.
