In case you haven’t installed the new patch yet, keep reading this article to know what to expect from it.
Mass Effect: Andromeda patch 1.05 issues
Game unable to launch
A few players have reported they’re unable to even launch the game after installing the patch. Here’s what one player said on the Bioware forums:
“Myself and a few others on Reddit seem to be having a catastrophic issue since the patch. After the patch installs the game won’t launch, the executable loads to memory using 59Mb of RAM and then just sits idle (waited 10+ minutes and it refuses to load, despite the fact the .exe is running). Using Repair game didn’t fix it, reboot, etc doesn’t fix it.
Game was loading fine yesterday and this morning before I installed the patch.”
Some of the players who managed to launch the game haven’t got too far. Namely, there are a couple of players who complain about long loading time after installing the patch. Additionally, the game even crashes on loading for some players. Here’s what they say:
“Very long loading times that could sometimes take up to 5 minutes to load. Occurs often 50% – 99% of the time.”
