Mass Effect: Andromeda did end up getting a day-one patch

Last week, we reported that Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s “day-one” patch was already incorporated into the early-access EA Access trail that Xbox One owners, as well as the Origin Access trial for PC, but it seems that a patch is going out, on day one for both PC and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 4.
We first caught wind of the update late Monday evening, with Jez Corden tweeting out the following: “Mass Effect Andromeda just got a 775MB patch on Xbox One.”  He followed this tweet with an article on Windows Central Tuesday morning, discussing the patch that rolled out for Xbox One, mentions that the update brings the game “to version 1.04 in-line with PS4 and PC,” which is true.  Gamesradar, who reported the 2GB PlayStation 4-version update yesterday, quotes Fernando Melo, the producer for Mass Effect: Andromeda, who tweeted out some notes about patches coming to all three platforms.  Those tweets are embedded below.

This again specifically contradicted the previous statements by Ian Frazier last week regarding a lack of day-one patches for the game.  It is worth noting, however, that none of the patches thus far, at least according to what we know, specifically aim to fix the animation glitches and quality that players have been experiencing.
Both articles will be linked below, but regardless of how you feel about being misinformed about patches and updates to a brand-new game, it’s good to see that Andromeda’s team is working hard to keep players in-the-loop and aware of upcoming patches.  Should we learn of more updates due out on any of the three platforms, we’ll keep you updated.  Until then, be sure to stay tuned to Rectify Gaming for the latest.
