Next Mass Effect 3 patch to fix import problem

Mass Effect 3  - 1098470

BioWare has apparently fixed the problem that has prevented users from importing the faces of characters from Mass Effect 1 or Mass Effect 2 into Mass Effect 3.

The error was determined to be with how codes were detected when transferred from Mass Effect 1 into Mass Effect 2 and then on into Mass Effect 3 or importing a Mass Effect 2 saved game with New Game.

Well, BioWare has solved the problem and it will be included as part of the next Mass Effect 3 patch.  Unfortunately, they didn't confirm when the patch will be available.

"A new patch gets heavily tested by BioWare, EA, Microsoft and Sony before it can be released to the public," said BioWare's Chris Priestly.

" We all want to be sure that it fixes the issues it is supposed to fix and doesn't start any new issues (this is called testing or certification testing)," he explained. "If a patch fails during testing, it is sent back, fixed again and retested until it passes. Then it is released to gamers."

"Until we know that the patch has passed certification testing, I don't want to give even a rough idea of the date, to prevent disappointment should it need further testing."

Priestly did say that he will give us a release date for the patch as soon as he can.

In the meantime, he suggested a fan made tool that may be able to help PC users in the short term and included detailed instructions from a fan on how to use it.
