We know there will be DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda, but with few details available we cannot yet tell you what they will be. BioWare did confirm via Twitter that there will not be a season pass to cover the add-ons, as has been the case with previous Mass Effect titles.
While Mass Effect: Andromeda is a great game, there is one area where it falls on its face: facial animations. Even before Andromeda was released in March, there were signs that the facial animations were a bit… questionable.
During a gameplay video released months before launch, protagonist Sarah Ryder pulled a few interesting faces during a conversation with squadmates. BioWare said at the time that facial animations were important to the game, and that it’d be fixed before launch.
However, as we all know, it wasn’t. The game is full of awkward facial expressions, walking glitches and a other issues that make the game feel a little unpolished.

Flynn noted that the company is releasing an update to the game that fixes a number of bugs and improvements requested by fans, including the ability to skip ahead when traveling between planets, extended inventory limits, better eyes for human characters and more. The update should include preliminary improvements to the facial animations, although deeper improvements should be roll out by the end of May 2017.
