Mass Effect 3 Title Update Coming This Week

By Mr J Muffin, 4 years ago
If you're like me, the very thought of a list of game fixes gets you all tingly inside. For all of you out there like me, or those of you who just like game patches, or...well, fans of the game, BioWare has just announced the next set of fixes for Mass Effect 3. With the multiplayer DLC coming out tomorrow, BioWare felt that instead of solely fixes to single-player mode, they'd include some multiplayer fixes in this update. I haven't even read the list yet, so I'll be reading along with you. Here we go.
