And so it ends. Pathfinders will no longer receive any new commissions to explore the vast Andromeda galaxy. EA and Bioware officially confirmed the end of the single-player campaign for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Update 1.10 was the end of the journey.
“Early in development, we decided to focus Mass Effect: Andromeda’s story on the Pathfinder, the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy, and the conflict with the Archon,” explains the Andromeda Team. “Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.”
EA Bioware will, however, continue to provide new content through the multiplayer side of Andromeda. “The game was designed to further expand on the Pathfinder’s journey through this new galaxy with story-based APEX multiplayer missions and we will continue to tell stories in the Andromeda Galaxy through our upcoming comics and novels, including the fate of the quarian ark, continues EA. “In the coming weeks, our multiplayer team will provide details of their ongoing support and upcoming content, including new multiplayer missions, character kits, and what’s in store for N7 Day.”
With Andromeda, EA Bioware has stepped so far away from the Mass Effect culture, that I am not sure we can even call it a Mass Effect game. The game launched just five months ago, and unlike all the previous installments that included valuable DLC's up to a year after launch, Andromeda comes to an abrupt end.
It's like EA is washing their hands of Andromeda, but I fear it might just leave a stain on all future Mass Effect games.
