Thousands of fans who enjoyed the original "#Mass Effect" trilogy would probably jump at the chance to play another title from the epic franchise. That wish was granted when BioWare finally released its highly awaited new sequel, "Mass Effect: Andromeda." While the gameplay and experience were arguably up to par with the previous games, the overall delivery of the game is an entirely different story.

BioWare sold an unfinished product

Since its release last month, the game has somewhat risen in popularity. However, its popularity wasn't really because of its epic story or challenging gameplay, but more towards its countless bugs and glitches.

"Mass Effect: Andromeda" has become early 2017's newest meme as countless videos and GIFs have now spread online, showing fans just how unfinished the game really is.

The developer's plan of action

After receiving numerous complaints regarding their problematic new title, BioWare has issued a statement and announced to the gaming community that they will be releasing several patches that will be fixing the game's reported problems. The updates will apparently start to roll out today and will continue to do so for the next two months.

A big deal for those who already have the game

The news is quite unfortunate for those who have already paid the $59.99 full retail price for "Mass Effect: Andromeda," as they essentially had paid for an unfinished product. BioWare's planned update are reportedly going to be changing the game in very significant ways, including its character systems and even its core programming.

Advice for those who haven't bought the game

As of the moment, the game can be construed as still being in its beta stage or at least similar to games in Early Access. "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will likely be going through some big changes in the coming months, which is why those that haven't bought the game yet are advised to wait until BioWare has resolved all its problems. By doing so, players may be able to fully experience the title as it was intended to be experienced.
