Bioware has just announced that it will not release any new patches for the single-player mode of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Moreover, Bioware claimed that there won’t be any DLC for Andromeda, and that its multiplayer mode will receive more content, including new multiplayer missions and character kits.
As Bioware claimed:
“Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.”
During these past few months, Bioware has improved the facial animations and the character models in the game’s cut-scenes, expanded its customization options, and fixed a number of issues that were reported by its community.
Of course this should not surprise anyone as Mass Effect: Andromeda was not as successful as its predecessors. And to be honest, Andromeda was not as ambitious as the previous Mass Effect games.
So yeah, it appears that the team is abandoning the game’s single-player mode, only five months since its release. To its credit, it has addressed a lot of issues and bugs, and – tech wise – Mass Effect: Andromeda is a polished product. As such, while this may disappoint the game’s fans, we can’t really think of anything that can be added to the game (perhaps a better story? But then again, this isn’t something that was meant to be addressed via a patch)!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
