BioWare has released Mass Effect Andromeda update 1.04 ahead of the hotly anticipated sci-fi RPG game’s North American debut tomorrow on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
The day one patch aims to address numerous bugs and stability issues, although as far as we know the update does not fix any of the animation issues that have been reported via early impressions on EA Access. The update weighs in at approximately 1.9GB on PS4.
In case you missed it, BioWare released a statement on the criticisms, notably addressing those individuals who launched a series of personal attacks on a member of the development team.

Mass Effect Andromeda will launch in the U.S. tomorrow and in Europe on March 23.
