Preview pages from the first issue revealed our main character to be Tiran Kandros, who appears in Mass Effect: Andromeda as the leader of the Nexus' civilian militia (the Andromeda Initiative has no formal armed forces).

BioWare also promised additional patches and regular support in the next two months to cover additional in-game issues. The first patch will arrive this week and will let players skip ahead when traveling planets in the Tempest, increase the inventory size, and fix latency and matchmaking in multiplayer, among other things. Flynn said the development team "has been poring over your comments and feedback" since the game was released, and announced that a patch to address technical issues and make other improvements will be released on Thursday, April 6. Those include a deeper character creation tool, fixes for character appearance and hair modelling, improved "male romance options for Scott Ryder" and better conversations with the trans character Hainly Abrams.

As for multiplayer, APEX missions will be improved, maps will be added, and new characters/ weapons will be integrated. BioWare will also be adding more cosmetic items to the single-player campaign for free.

Gamers have also expressed their desire to use the AAX5 weapon in the game, but we'll just have to wait and see if this is possible. That didn't happen, so it may be several months before Mass Effect: Andromeda is where it needs to be.

Mass Effect: Andromeda shipped with a host of issues that impact gameplay and fans are eagerly awaiting fixes on multiple fronts. What you'd expect if you played the multiplayer in Mass Effect 3, really. We're listening, and we're committed to partnering with you as we continue to explore the Andromeda galaxy together.
