Mass Effect 3 Patch Inbound

Per the Bioware Blog, today (4/9) we should see the release of the first notable patch for Mass Effect 3, with the console version to follow tomorrow. The fix list includes the following:

– 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)

  1. For that PS3 only one: whereby they say “potentially”, they mean almost always and by Holding Docks area to the Normandy Docks area”, they mean almost anywhere on the Citadel to either the Holding Docks or the Normandy Docks area. It was getting really frustrating moving around the Citadel (literally, you had to quicksave before entering the elevator).

  2. I still have access to the dlc on other accounts. but wait i never paid for it cause it was hidden in the files!

  3. Just an fyi that for PC players at least it seems like it hasn’t cleared up the face import issues for everyone….

  4. No mention of the Bronze to Gold level 10 money glitch (nets about 40k-45k of credits for multiplayer in 2-5mins once you get the host swap going).

    It’s fairly common knowledge within the Xbox 360 community & is impossible to catch if everyone turns off “feedback” in the online options section. We’ll see tomorrow if peeps are still up to shenanigans.
