Mass Effect 3 Patch Live On Consoles And PC, Corrects Face Importing

When Mass Effect 3 originally released, players were most excited to be able to import their Commander Shepard from the previous titles right into the final sequel. What these eager players were met with, however, were errors that ultimately had them running with either a brand new creation or the default Shep for the job. With plenty of fans disgruntled and complaining, BioWare has given the issue its much-needed attention, and a patch has released today to help correct it for good.

The patch, which is now available for the PC (it will be available for consoles tomorrow), focuses mainly on correcting the facial import from Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2, but it also addresses some other bugs and issues in the game. So far, here’s what the patch will bring:

  • Fixed issues when in some cases Shepard’s customized facial features from ME1/ME2 may not be properly imported to ME3
  • Fixed an issue when quickly and repeatedly selecting to Resume a Save could result in Player Level reset and a potential locking of powers.
  • Fixed an issue when selecting Multiplayer in the Main Menu while under a poor network connection could result in an unresponsive state.
  • Fixed a potential crash while accessing an in-game terminal from Eden Prime level.
  • Fixed an issue when attempting to login while Server is down. It would display a Server Down message and accepting the Server Shutdown message would shut down the game.
  • Fixed a potential memory crash while loading a Quick Save of a custom FemShep.
  • Fixed an issue when restarting missions and acquiring an above max amount of weapon mods results in displayed debug text on-screen.
  • Fixed an issue when an unresponsive game state could occur during transition after the Conduit level.
  • Fixed an issue when DLC game saves can be accessed from an account without DLC if another account on the same computer has access to the related DLC. (PC Only)
  • Fixed an issue when saves from different accounts on the same computer may become locked if one account has access to DLC which the other account does not. (PC Only)
  • Fixed an issue when potentially the game could enter unresponsive state when transitioning from the Holding Docks area to the Normandy Docks area of the Citadel. (PS3 Only)

All of these fixes are appreciated, but fans will most certainly have the highest excitement about the import. Now you can bring good old familiar Shepard back into the series once more. After all, doesn’t it make the game more enjoyable when you take your own, lovable, squeezable character through the trenches? PC players, you can get to work, though console dudes, you’ve got 24 more hours to hold on.
