As previously revealed, Mass Effect: Andromeda will have a day one patch that will add significant improvements to the game’s performance; however, this update could arrive a little ahead of schedule. How is it possible? Explanations are given below.
BioWare, the development company, explained that Mass Effect: Andromeda is already in its Gold phase and also stated that they are already working hard on the day one patch, which they hope to have ready for debut but not with the general launch of the game, but with the arrival of this title to EA/Origin Access, the platform that allows to play games in advance to the subscribers.
The new installment of the franchise will then seek to be ready, with everything and its first great patch, for the 16th of March, on which date the title will arrive to EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC. At least this was stated by Producer Michael Gamble and General Manager Aaryn Flynn.
On Twitter, a user asked if the day one patch will arrive on March 16 to which Flynn said “Yes that’s the plan.” Gamble also intervened in this statement commenting that “No promises yet. But we are working hard to make that a reality.”
For its part, the official launch of the game will take place a few days later, on March 21, day the title will debut on all platforms without subscription restrictions.
