'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Patch Notes: New Update 1.06 to include outfit, skins for Nomad


A new update, patch 1.06, just hit Mass Effect: Andromeda. The update includes some bug fixes and, if you have the deluxe or super deluxe editions, a new casual outfit for Ryder. 

Unfortunately, it appears there's currently a bug preventing deluxe edition owners from claiming the new cosmetic items if they already claimed the special delivery on the Tempest. Andromeda producer Michael Gamble said BioWare is "looking into it."

The full patch notes for update 1.06 are embedded below.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Update 1.06 Patch Notes: New casual outfit and Nomad skins for deluxe edition owners

The biggest part of patch 1.06 is a whole load of bug fixes. However, according to BioWare's blog post, "those of you who have the deluxe or super deluxe edition will also receive two custom Nomad skins, a new casual Pathfinder outfit and an exclusive multiplayer pack with a high chance of receiving an ultra-rare item."

The new casual outfit includes some sporty, mildly garish workout gear complete with a cheeky reference to "Blasto," a Hanar character who stars in some goofy action movies within the original Mass Effect trilogy.

Here's how it looks on Scott Ryder:
