Expensive Mass Effect 3 patch only fixes two issues – is the new DLC on the way?

Mass Effect 3

By on January 31, 2013 at 6:14 pm

Everyone’s favourite multiplayer game Mass Effect 3 is no doubt due for a come back after Mr. McCasker recently rediscovered its glory. You’ll be pleased to hear then, that it is receiving a patch today across all platforms.

You will perhaps not be as pleased to learn that it will only fix two issues and only one for multiplayer, specifically fixing a glitch that allowed players to have all their weapons using rocket ammunition. For those that don’t play the game, the cobra missile launcher is for when things really get heavy — it kills everything in the blast radius with one hit.

Further into the forum thread it is mentioned that there will also be some minor balance changes as well. The other issue being fixed is one resulting in high memory usage when initialising DLCs.

With the host of bugs and glitches plaguing Mass Effect 3‘s multiplayer, and the ridiculously high cost of patching console games (tens of thousands of dollars) many are left reasonably wondering why BioWare are footing the bill for such a small change. Which of course, leads many to suspect that BioWare are preparing the game for the imminent launch of their next major piece of DLC — the biggest one yet, if reports are to be believed.

Stay tuned for more info!
