Mass Effect: Andromeda's first big update is now available on PlayStation 4. Patch 1.05 promises a slew of improvements to BioWare's recently released title, which launched in a rough state. The update weighs in at around 2.2GB.

Improvements include better looking eyes for human and Asari characters, increased inventory limits, and the ability to skip the animation that plays when you zip from planet to planet on the galaxy map. It also boasts a load of balance changes for both the single player campaign and the multiplayer component, as well as supposed boosts to performance.
