Mass Effect Andromeda update 1.08 for PS4 and Xbox One will be available soon, however, the official change log is released. The new update brings improvements to the Character Creator, expanded Male Romance Options for Scott Ryder and other improvements.

Mass Effect Andromeda

The update also fixed the issue with Nomad upgrades Shield Crafting quest and issue where weight reduction modifications wouldn’t reduce weight. Check out what’s new and fixed in the latest update.

What’s new in Mass Effect Andromeda update 1.08

Improved Character Creator

The new update expanded the options available in the character creator, giving you greater control over your Ryder’s appearance. Two new heads were added, one male and one female, as well as a new complexion option and a greater range of available skin tones. We also unlocked all hairstyles for both exes, and added a new bald option.

For players wanting to adjust their look mid-game, Mass Effect Andromeda update 1.08 added the ability to change your character’s appearance onboard the Tempest. And for fans of Alec Ryder’s iconic appearance, you can now choose to keep the default Alec, rather than having his appearance be based on your custom Ryder.

Expanded Male Romance Options for Scott Ryder

With this new Mass Effect Andromeda update 1.08 for PS4 and XBox One, Scott Ryder can now pursue Jaal as a romance option. There are several important reasons for this change:

Scott Ryder did not have a same-sex squadmate available as a romance option, nor could the achievement for completing three romances be achieved with only male same-sex partners. And as the angara have expressed their fluidity in how they perceive gender, it seemed only natural that Scott could have a relationship with Jaal.
