Mass Effect: Andromeda Will Have Day One Patch, Full Game's File Size Revealed

BioWare shares new details.


With Mass Effect: Andromeda due to launch in just a few more weeks, developer BioWare has now confirmed more details about it. According to DualShockers, BioWare's Ian Frazier said on Twitter that a "good portion" of the development team is still at work on the day-one patch. The game went gold on Friday, meaning the studio has completed the initial development on the game.

This patch should be up and ready by the time Andromeda launches for EA Access and Origin Access, five days before the game comes out on March 21. Producer Michael Gamble cautioned that nothing is set in stone as of yet, so plans could change.

BioWare also confirmed that Andromeda's file size on PS4 and Xbox One is "at least 45, not more than 60" gigabytes. On PC, the file size is apparently 55 GB. You can see the PC requirements here.

Andromeda launches on March 21 for all platforms. You may not have to wait that long to play, however, as a multiplayer beta is expected to launch at some point before then.
