Denuvo DRM already cracked in Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda developer BioWare released a statement last week regarding the game's widely reported animation issues.

In addition, the same weapon can also be seen in several trailers of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Aspects like the freakish dead eyes of Human and Asari characters in Mass Effect: Andromeda are being changed, along with improved lip sync, and "Fixing Ryder's movements when running in a zig zag pattern". Abrams is a transgender NPC that players can talk to in the game and many fans took issue with the way in which the character comes out, saying that it was both freaky and insulting. Between its lackluster same-sex romance options for men and clumsy handling of a transgender character named Hainly Abrams, many fans felt like BioWare had cut corners, leaving them behind in the process.

All these reports are still not confirmed as the real reason about the "Mass Effect: Andromeda" animation shortcoming and now still under investigation. According to Robertson's sources, Bioware relied heavily on Cyberscan instead of using artists to sculpt faces internally, believing this to be a time-saving measure for development. After the initial scans were done, Bioware apparently did not touch them. In spite of this, EA outsourcing its work is nothing new as it has often passed animation from its internal studios. They are working to release X5 Ghost rifle in the game. Moreover, players are requesting that they also include the AAX5 weapon but the studio has yet to respond to this.

If you've been paying attention to our recent coverage, then you'll know Mass Effect: Andromeda is a mess. One of these, the craziest bugs in the game - I actually have no idea how I should describe it - is an issue that Bioware has already fixed and will most likely be a part of a new patch.
