Andromeda's Day One Patch Won't Fix Characters' Strange Facial Animations

Andromeda's Day One Patch Won't Fix Characters' Strange Facial Animations

This is frustrating, especially if you can recall Bioware saying that they don't want to rush production so that they can really turn Mass Effect Andromeda into a leading title in the technical gaming industry. These aren't the kind of flaws that should be present in a triple-A game release.

Whether the facial animations are bad or not in Mass Effect Andromeda, people should never personally attack individuals for their work on a certain game. Unfortunately for fans, it's becoming apparent the game has a couple of issues, namely poor animations when it comes to characters' movement and facial expressions. This tweet denies her being an EA employee as well.

The torrent of abuse from online trolls ultimately forced Leost to shut down some of her social media pages. An interesting statement, since Marie-Marie's Twitter account, implied that she's the lead facial animator on Mass Effect Andromeda.


Mass Effect: Andromeda's final release is just a few days away, but subscribers to Electronic Arts' EA Access service have been able to play the first ten hours of the highly-anticipated intergalactic RPG.

The trolling of Leost has continued so far, though numerous netizens have begun stating that the issue of Mass Effect: Andromeda's awkward facial renderings and Leost's role in the fiasco were overblown.

As you may have already guessed, the target of this witch hunt is a woman. Back in 2012, the developer was caught in the middle of the controversy surrounding Jennifer Hepler, who served as a writer for Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
