The latest and the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda was rolled out last month, and it primarily targeted fixes for in-game issues.

BioWare ends ME:A single-player updates

Mass Effect: Andromeda was launched five months ago, and it was the fourth major installment of the franchise. Now BioWare revealed that the game would no longer receive any future updates for single-player or new in-game story content. This sad announcement came right a couple of months after more sources confirmed that all future DLCs had been canceled.

One of the reasons for this latest move performed by the studio might be the fact that the game studio is shifting its focus towards Anthem which is the AAA action role-playing game scheduled for launch in the fall of 2018.

Loose narrative threads will be continued via novels & comics

Fortunately, the studio made sure to mention that it will ensure that the loose narrative threads of the campaign will be addressed by the use of upcoming novels and comics.

BioWare said that during the early stages of the game’s development, the studio decided to focus the game’s story on the Pathfinder, the conflict with the Archon, and the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy. As a result, the story was designed in such a way to further expand on the Pathfinder’s journey through the new galaxy with story-based APEX multiplayer missions. BioWare promised to keep telling stories in the Andromeda Galaxy including about the fate of the quarian ark via forthcoming novels and comic books.

The multiplayer mode still get updates

The multiplayer mode will still receive updates with new content such as character kits and missions. The studio’s multiplayer team will offer more details about all this shortly.

Even if everyone was excited with anticipation and hype about the Mass Effect franchise, Andromeda received review scores around the 70/100 mark from various platforms on Metacritic.
