With regards to the new report, EA has provided GameSpot with a statement. It refused to give part any new aspects regarding DLC plans, but it did verify, “[We have never operated together with Sinclair Networks and they had no part to do with the growth of Mass Effect: Andromeda.” Allegedly that a company named Sinclair was working on Andromeda DLC that EA had since canceled — this statement disputes a claim made in a recent Facebook post.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will reportedly not be getting any single-player DLC in a departure from previous games in the series. From a Kotaku report, referring to three unknown sources ” [developer] BioWare’s plans is familiar with,” no development or revisions will approach the EA label. It seems that it will not be the case for Andromeda as previous Mass Effect titles have all received added single-player content the following kick off.
According to the report, the decision was made at least in part after the game’s varied critical and fan reception. Leading some players to become unhappy with BioWare and EA, as Andromeda’s launch was plagued with issues.
In May, Kotaku then reported that EA had put the Mass Effect series on “hiatus” and scaled down BioWare’s workforce. To push out fixes and support its multiplayer portion, but that most of the game’s primary development studio, BioWare Montreal, has moved on to other projects The site’s report states a small team remains working on Andromeda.
It has since unveiled its new IP, Anthem, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018 for the Edmonton, Canada-based developer.
Critic Scott Butterworth said, in our Mass Effect Andromeda review, “In countless ways, Andromeda feels like a vision half-actualized. Although the quality fluctuates wildly, it contains a dizzying amount of content. Despite that its worlds and combat shine, but its writing and missions waffle–to compensate for the inescapable weakness of the latter, the relative strength of the former is not enough.” He granted a 6/10 for the game.
