Mass Effect Andromeda’s single-player expertise is finished and dusted.
Mass Effect Andromeda had been anticipated to observe franchise custom by increasing with a few single-player DLC packs after launch, however it was to not be.
In an replace to the group, BioWare confirmed there can be no single-player content material incoming, and that it’s carried out making patches for the single-player aspect of Mass Effect Andromeda, too.
“Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content,” BioWare mentioned.
“The game was designed to further expand on the Pathfinder’s journey through this new galaxy with story-based APEX multiplayer missions and we will continue to tell stories in the Andromeda Galaxy through our upcoming comics and novels, including the fate of the quarian ark.”
Multiplayer help and growth for Mass Effect Andromeda will proceed, so you possibly can count on new character kits and occasions.
This doesn’t imply the franchise is lifeless, by the best way. BioWare ended its publish by saying it hopes “to see you again in the Mass Effect universe”, and recently-returned BioWare leader Casey Hudson took to Twitter to say the sci-fi universe can be again sometime.
“I love Mass Effect too much to not want to work on it again in the future,” he mentioned.
Let’s hope meaning Mass Effect video games, and never simply extra comics and novels.
Although information of Mass Effect Andromeda’s single-player demise is disappointing, it’s not surprising. Mass Effect Andromeda reviews have been lower than sequence customary, and the horribly tough state it launched in mixed with a badly-paced opening meant it turned something of a laughing stocokay regardless of fast patching work from the group.
It wasn’t lengthy earlier than rumours started to flow into of BioWare Montreal becoming a support team, which is a bit unhappy provided that MAss Effect Andromeda was solely its first go as lead developer. EA finally merged BioWare Montreal with EA Motive, which suggests it’s extra excited about Star Wars than BioWare’s personal IP proper now.
BioWare Edmonton, the core group, continues to work on shard-worlds shooter Anthem and one thing new within the Dragon Age franchise. BioWare Austin continues to beaver away on MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic in addition to supporting different EA groups.
