Mass Effect: Andromeda Updated to 1.04 & Facial Animation Update Considered

In the review of Mass Effect: Andromeda, you will learn that the game while superb, is by no means perfect. A simple google search will reveal that the number one problem players are having with the game is in the facial animations of its characters, or lack thereof.

That could soon change, according to Bioware

The new Patch 1.04 introduces a slew of improvements to the single player and multiplayer aspects, including some general performance updates, balances and bug fixes.

Here’s the full list:
