New Mass Effect 3 Patch Expected This Week

And it’s a big one. BioWare announced today that they expect to release the next Mass Effect 3 patch later this week on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. It’s been a few months since the last patch was released and it seems that BioWare were able to fix quite a bit in that period of time as this new patch list is massive. You can read the entire patch notes for all three platforms below. Game Fixes: Fixed tutorial tip that didn’t properly display an unbound command Fixed an issue in multiplayer where if a character has DLC weapons equipped, and the DLC associated to the weapons is deleted, the weapon loadout screen displayed no weapons Sabotage power evolution 6 increased tech damage bonus no longer stacks Fixed a rare crash in the final mission level involving the firing of the Cain at the Hades Cannon. Fixed the Encumbrance Bar from not updating correctly for the Earth DLC weapon mods Fixed weapons with natural piercing from having their damage reduced with piercing mods equipped Incinerate power evolution 5 now gives a damage bonus to frozen and chilled enemies Krogan Vanguard Rage bonuses now work properly Fixed Shepard’s shadow from not appearing after entering and exiting an Atlas Fixed quitting/disconnecting while holding Retrieve Object that could cause the Retrieve Object to disappear Fixed users logging off or disconnecting during gameplay from not being able to return online until rebooting the game Players can no longer grab Geth Pyros over cover Fixed issue in which enemies surviving a detonated Stasis blast became invulnerable Attempting to equip similar weapon mods will now present a ‘Slot Occupied’ message Asari Justicar passive power evolution 3 power damage and force bonus now works properly Disruptor Rounds consumable (all ranks) damage multiplier against shields and barriers increased from 100% to 400% Particle Rifle no longer replenishes ammo from ammo boxes and supply pylons Fixed an issue when using Biotic Charge before death that caused the match to be unplayable afterwards Fixed pathing for Banshees so they don’t get stuck in a teleport routine Fixed Asari Justicar from not being able to activate Biotic Sphere within range of large enemies Fixed dropping Retrieve Objects that could potentially fall under the level All Batarian and Krogan kits will now stagger less than other kits Ops Survival Packs now grant a one second damage immunity when consumed Singularity power re-designed: Singularity no longer has a maximum number of charges and will only be destroyed when the time runs out Performing a biotic combo on someone floating in the singularity no longer ends the singularity Base cooldown changed to 8 seconds Base duration of the singularity changed to 8 seconds Base power now does 100 points of damage per second to all targets that are in range, even if not floating in the singularity Base power sets up biotic combos on everyone that comes into range (only 1 combo added per enemy per cast of singularity) Rank 3 changed to...

So Guerrilla Kept Killzone Assets in a Shoebox … Interesting
