BioWare has announced that they now have a fix for the issues that prevented players importing their previous characters face in to the new mass Effect 3 game. The issue on the faces was detected when imported from Mass Effect 1 into Mass Effect 2 and foxed players to have to recreate their characters face with Mass Effect 3.
Chris Priestly updated the forum post over the weekend explaining the update. Unfortunately, the release date for the face issue is still up in the air, as it still needs to gain certification at EA, Microsoft and Sony.
“Ok, I have what I hope is some good news. We have fixed the issue of faces not correctly importing into Mass Effect 3. It will be included as part of the next Mass Effect 3 patch.
The not completely good news is that I do not yet have a confirmed date for 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. 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 ). 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.
As more information comes to light on a release date we will keep you updated.
