Mass Effect Andromeda PS4 vs Xbox One Differences Revealed

Mass Effect: Andromeda arrives five years after the last entry in the series and explores a new, uncharted part of the galaxy light years away from the Milky Way.

BioWare, the developer behind Mass Effect: Andromeda, issued a formal statement that gamers were attacking the wrong person, referring to the person in question as a "former EA employee" who "was misidentified as a lead member of the Mass Effect: Andromeda development team". Thankfully, it seems as though BioWare isn't ready to call it quits. It feels like Mass Effect: Andromeda has been a long time coming, and as such, it's the start of a whole new chapter in BioWare's epic space opera.

The update features "various improvements and bug fixes". As we reported earlier, the Origin Access/EA Access trial of ME: Andromeda comes with the day one patch baked in on PC, so if you downloaded the trial and buy the full game on Origin, you'll be playing with the day one update.

I had heard that an additional patch was on the way, which is why I chose to hold off scoring our review until after the fact. Thankfully, a lot of those known issues were covered. Some Mass Effect fans are fightin' mad about the janky animations, and a small subset of trolls and malcontents have made a decision to target a specific BioWare employee over them.

The PS4 has a higher resolution of 1080p while the Xbox One runs at 900p.
