BioWare To Address 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Criticism Soon
"Mass Effect: Andromeda" launched with a lot of criticism regarding the quality of its facial and walking animations. It seems that BioWare has recognized that the issue has gotten bigger after the game officially launched for all platforms last week. The developers have revealed that they plan to communicate with their fans next week to talk about their plans on how to tackle the problem.
Come April 4, BioWare will hold an event to discuss with fans and address the prominent issues that plague "Mass Effect: Andromeda". The developer also claimed that they have "received quite a bit of feedback." They apparently consider them as "an important part of our ongoing support of the game," reports IGN. Sources also noticed that BioWare did not specify exactly what criticism it will tackle during their event next week.

Most fans are already aware that BioWare will mainly focus on the criticism of the game's character animations. Ever since "Mass Effect: Andromeda" became available to gamers with early access, players immediately pointed out issues with the character's facial and walking animations. Other sources have also noted that the game encounters some matchmaking problems in its multiplayer mode. PC users have apparently reported compatibility issues as well.
Gamers should also note that BioWare's communication appears to be very careful with their choice of words. The developer seems to be defensive against the criticism it received with "Mass Effect: Andromeda". Sources suspect that they are just being cautious not to trigger the existing fan community of the RPG series any further, says Game Rant. Previous reports also highlighted the incident where fans allegedly began a harassment campaign against an employee, who was mistakenly linked to the game's animations.
The issues regarding the animations in "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will understandably take some time to fix. Several reports have already speculated that the community will continue with their negative criticism no matter what. Ideally, fans should expect BioWare to successfully address the game's issues without any controversy next week.
