BioWare have confirmed they will not be releasing any more single-player content for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
As reported by PC Gamer, a recent statement by the development team confirms that 1.10 was the solo campaign’s final update, and while the studio “worked hard to address feedback from our community […] from improving animations to expanding customization options” from here on in, the team will focus on multiplayer.
“Early in development, we decided to focus Mass Effect: Andromeda’s story on the Pathfinder, the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy, and the conflict with the Archon,” reads the statement.
“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.
“There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.”
So, what’s next for Andromeda? We can expect more details about new multiplayer missions, character kits – and N7 Day celebrations, naturally – in due course. So watch this space, I guess.
Despite early criticism of the game’s inconsistency, strange animations, and occasionally dodgy voice work, in EA’s recent financials, Mass Effect: Andromeda is held up as the title that drove the company’s financials last quarter, referenced multiple times as a significant factor in generating revenue. In our Mass Effect: Andromeda review, Kirk noted its flaws but enjoyed it nonetheless.
