Bioware has also promised that the following couple of months will see numerous patches rolling out, going deeper into fixing some areas of the game. They will offer:

  • More options and variety in the character creator
  • Improvements to hair and general appearance for characters
  • Ongoing improvements to cinematic scenes and animations
  • Improvements to male romance options for Scott Ryder
  • Adjustments to conversations with Hainly Abrams

There will be improvements on the APEX mission with new characters, maps and weapons. First of the three new chapters for MP called The Remnant Investigation will launch on Thursday as well. Flynn also says that they are “committed to partnering with you as we continue to explore the Andromeda galaxy together”.

The game has been out for a couple of weeks and despite a mild reaction from the reviewers it has been at the top of UK sales charts ever since. The dedication stated here bodes well for Bioware, because the fan backlash has been significant.
