No Mass Effect Andromeda Single Player DLC On The Way
No Mass Effect Andromeda Single Player DLC Says Bioware
Bioware has confirmed that there will be no Mass Effect Andromeda single player DLC.
In a blog post on the game’s website, the developer said the following:
“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.
“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.
“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.”
The developer has stated that the game’s multiplayer will continue to be supported with new missions, character kits and some sort of tie-in with N7 day.
This is not the biggest surprise given the disappointing reception of Mass Effect Andromeda and given that developer Bioware Montreal has been merged with EA Motive and moved on to work on Star Wars along with other projects like Anthem.
Other recent Bioware changes included the return of the Mass Effect trilogy’s project director Casey Hudson as the new general manager replacing Aaryn Flynn after several years at Microsoft.
Kotaku previously reported that there would be no Mass Effect Andromeda single player DLC in June according to their sources.
This marks a significant departure from previous entries in the series such as Mass Effect 2‘s Citadel DLC or Mass Effect 3‘s Leviathan DLC.
What do you think of no Mass Effect Andromeda single player DLC? Are you disappointed the game isn’t receiving more content or are you glad Bioware is moving onto other projects?
