Next Mass Effect 3 Patch To Fix Faces

If you're anything like us, chances are you've already rebuilt your Shepard following the face importing issue in Mass Effect 3, and now you're perfectly happy with your new and improved version of the Commander. Or not, as the case may be. If you find yourself falling into the latter camp, then help may soon be at hand.
In an update on the BioWare forums, there's news regarding a forthcoming patch for Mass Effect 3 that'll finally fix the pesky face import issues, although there isn't a date yet confirmed for the patch, as BioWare's Chris Priestly explains.
"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."
Obviously, BioWare will update us with a date for the face import patch as and when, but for now, it's at least good to know that a solution to the problem is finally on the way. Although it might be a bit late for the majority of players. Still, you can always take advantage of the patch in that second or third playthrough you have planned, right?
