Hardware manufacturer Nvidia has released a set of Game Ready drivers for EA Vancouver's Mass Effect: Andromeda, ensuring that GeForce graphics card owners will enjoy "higher-fidelity effects, higher framerates, and support for higher resolutions". Andromeda is now available via early access on EA and Origin Access and some of those who have tried it have particular been disappointed with janky animations and face models.
The bottom line is this: if you plan to play Mass Effect: Andromeda on PC, make sure you always download the latest game updates. We talked about the performance of the game and how you can run the game at 60 FPS at 1080p.
PC gamers are reporting glitches and black screens while playing Mass Effect: Andromeda, even after the supposed day-one update that's included with the Origin trial downloads. The old system of Paragon and Renegade choices was not loaded aboard the Hyperion to make the journey to Andromeda - the new rational, emotional, casual and professional options should in theory create a more nuanced experience of consequences but will they shape the story as effectively?
Nvidia continues: "If you wish to crank the settings and resolution way up, consider SLI configurations, which are now supported in Mass Effect: Andromeda with the release of the new Game Ready driver".
Andromeda looks wonderful on PC, and runs mostly fine, PC players known how valuable it is to run the game at the best performance possible.
Following Andromeda's early access trial, much has been made of the game in motion on social media.
