If you’ve fired up your copy of Mass Effect 3 and tried to import your character from the original game, you’ve probably come across a fancy little error. Don’t fret just yet, as BioWare is currently looking to address the import issue.
Chris Priestly, of BioWare, has issued a statement in the official BioWare forums. Priestly stated that, “We are aware that some players are having issues importing the faces of characters from Mass Effect 1 or Mass Effect 2 into Mass Effect 3. The issue is likely in how faces were detected when imported from Mass Effect 1 into Mass Effect 2, and we’re working on the best way to correct it for affected players.”
It’s unfortunate that there’s an issue with importing your character’s face from the first game. If you still have your copies, we recommend pulling your character creation screen and looking at the unique code in regards to your character’s face.
BioWare also mentioned that PC players of Mass Effect 3 could look at using Mass Effect Tools to attempt to fix their issue with the face import issue. Keep in mind that this is not an official site nor do they have affiliation with BioWare, but it’s worth taking a look at to attempt to fix your issue on the PC version.
