Hello Mass Effect 2 Xbox 360 players.

This morning a patch for Mass Effect 2 went live on the Xbox 360. This patch contains the following:
  • Scanning for minerals has been optimized
  • Fixed an issue with marking all entries as viewed in the Journal
  • Fixed an issue relating to text and the menu screen
  • Fixed an issue relating to players starting a new game and loading a save
  • Fixed multiple issues when loading a save containing DLC when DLC isn't present
  • Fixed an issue with ammo flashing when it can't be picked up
  • Fixed an issue with crosshairs
  • Fixed an issue with Grunt's Fortification power
  • Fixed an issue with enemies and cover
  • Fixed an issue where players could receive additional talent points
  • Fixed an issue where squad members would overwrite ammo powers the player had assigned them
Currently this patch is only for the 360, but a patch for the PC version of Mass Effect 2 is in the works and we will have details as soon as they are ready. :)

...so does this mean that the X+A skill points will now all be reset? Je suis confused on this one :( FINALLY on the ammo powers however...THAT was a true nightmare boys.



Although...what was the crosshairs issue?

I actually quite liked scanning. Then again, I'm also a freak. Yay for patches, regardless!

I don't like that skills patch. May have to holdoff on doing this update.

I noticed the mineral scan was loads faster after the patch. Hell, that is so appreciated even now during my fifth playthrough. :D

I didn't mind scanning on the PC, but on the xbox version it is painfully slow.

A question though, When you said 'Fixed an issue where players could receive additional talent points '- is that the A and B button one or another one that i'm not aware of.

Your assumption is correct. Well, you need to start the game as well. Then you will get a message about an update.

Yep, all the notes of what was fixed in the new Xbox 360 patch is now available in the Mass Effect News forum. You can checvk it out here: http://social.biowar...9/index/2637694 :)

Any chances of the PC patch giving us keyboard shortcuts back?

Omg! At last, I can shock the monkeys without worrying about Grunt!

(Yes, that was totally intentional.)

Just be connected to Xbox Live and start the game.  It's a very small download and will say something along the lines of 'This title requires you to download an update'
