Fight for a New Home in Mass Effect: Andromeda

The issues reported include a black screen on game start-up, broken alt-tab support, game failing to launch at all, Ryder being stuck in an animation and not respond to commands, HDR support issues and more. Focus on only a couple of characters to romance, as each has a different number of things that are needed to actually trigger a response from them. Note that you will require an HDR compatible TV or monitor to experience the superior quality. If you're only into single-player, cool.

Have you already pre-order the "Mass Effect: Andromeda?".


We've put together a bunch of independent guides for the various characters, and we'll be adding to it as time goes on, check back often for the walk-throughs on how to get that adorable compilation of pixels to pay attention to you. A similar patch will also be available for the console versions of the game. Take that as an opportunity to search wide for any enemies that you can take down. You only have indirect control over your squadmates, and beyond telling them to move to specific locations they'll just do their own thing during a firefight. Take armor, for example.

Right when you boot into Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer, you'll be prompted to complete a brief tutorial mission before heading into cooperative matches with a group of friends or random players via matchmaking. Whichever you decide, be sure to keep checking in on them.


The N7 Armor offers some pretty decent coverage for Ryder, with the chest piece after upgrades increasing max shields by 10%, Biotic power damage by 8%, and Biotic recharge speed by 15% alone. It's tempting at first to spend a lot of time wandering about trying to understand the layout and talking to the various NPCs to get a sense of what has been happening with the initiative, but our advice is don't get too bogged down in all that as there is plenty of time to catch up on all the internal politics and in-fighting after you have got a few key missions under your belt. Scanning planets for resources is a slog best experienced in small doses, for example, where exploring the far reaches of uncharted planets from the pilot's seat of your all-terrain, upgradeable Nomad never gets old.

To that end, however, Mass Effect: Andromeda isn't all about moving forward, and there are quite a few clever callbacks to the original trilogy present within the game. Furthermore, you can change your profile preference on the fly which will give boosts specific to that class type and even set up favourites to utilise in specific situations.
