Mass Effect: Andromeda Is Better With Mods


A journey across the stars always sounds fun, but even more so when you haven’t seen the sun in weeks. Stuck in my small apartment during a global pandemic, I recently became so desperate for an escape that I booted up Mass Effect: Andromeda.

The deeply flawed sci-fi role-playing game was received poorly in 2017, and it remains to be frowned upon by many in the gaming community.


But it turns out that just a few mods can go a long way, as you’ll see in the video above.

Do any of the mods make the tons of fetch quests worth doing, or have any kind of written narrative attached to them at all?

I maintain that the core of Andromeda was solid.  There’s a great 30-35 hour game in there.  There’s just another 50 hours or so of unrewarding filler.
