Bioware has released the first major update for Mass Effect Andromeda after its launch last month. This new patch updates the game to version 1.05 and among the improvements are one major change that completely transforms the look of some of the key characters.
While Bioware is still working on improving the facial animation, the latest update has improved the eyes for the main characters making them look much more human instead of their robot-like model that had dead eyes syndrome.
The default female Sara Ryder model appears to have received a massive face lift and now looks much better. You can check it out in the images below, courtesy of reddit.
Just as a reminder, here is how she looked at launch without this latest update.
There was an earlier rumor that her appearance was tweaked in the day one patch although it hasn’t been verified yet. Atleast we can confirm that the latest patch does improve her facial details making her look more natural.

The improvements are not related to just the eyes but the skin textures have also been tweaked. It remains to be seen if there are improvements to the actual facial animations but atleast the main characters now resemble humans and not some alien robots.
Update: Here is another great comparison shared by reddit user VirgelFromage.
Mass Effect Andromeda is available now for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
