Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch 1.06: See What it Fixes

Today, BioWare released the full patch notes for the lat­est update for Mass Effect: Androm­e­da. This does­n’t just include changes to the sin­gle play­er expe­ri­ence, but the mul­ti­play­er as well. 

BioWare launched this patch ear­li­er today, stat­ing that it did improve begin­ning cin­e­mat­ic scenes in the game, along with a report­ed bug that made SAM repeat­ed­ly tell Ryder he had received a new email (how annoying).

They also fixed an issue where play­ers were not able to com­plete all dia­logue options with the crew, as it was appear­ing “greyed out” even if the char­ac­ter had more to say.

Play­ers who pur­chased the Deluxe or Super Deluxe Edi­tions of Mass Effect: Androm­e­da will be receiv­ing two cus­tom Nomad skins, a new casu­al Pathfind­er out­fit, and an exclu­sive mul­ti­play­er pack that increas­es the chance of get­ting an ultra-rare item. 

The amount of changes BioWare made to bal­ance their mul­ti­play­er is aston­ish­ing. It seems most of this patch is to facil­i­tate the bal­anc­ing of this game mode. You can see the patch notes on mul­ti­play­er, here. Gen­er­al patch notes are list­ed below:
