Update 2: According to Kotaku's sources, the Mass Effect franchise has been put on hold and BioWare Montreal has been downsized. This is probably due to the fact that the game was bashed by critics and had a ton of technical issues.

There's a new Mass Effect: Andromeda patch out today which fixes some quests but there are still frame rate issues and slowdowns on Xbox One. I'm not sure what the patch does because BioWare hasn't shared patch notes yet but it definitely doesn't fix the frame rate problems.

Update 1: The company shared patch notes and they include some good fixes. You can take a look at them as follows:

Fixed issue that caused singleplayer difficulty to impact multiplayer
Improved performance and stability
Various improvements to cinematic scenes
