BioWare will release the largest patch to date for Mass Effect 3 this week, promising to fix a range of issues for both the console versions and the PC version of the role-playing game.

The patch promises to fix technical issues, gameplay exploits, and platform-specific problems including game-crashing bugs, tutorial pop-ups, multiplayer powers, enemy behaviour, and others.

The full list of what has been fixed is now available on the BioWare forum.

Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players will be prompted to update their games with the new patch. PC players will have to download the patch through Origin.

In a Twitter post, BioWare producer Michael Gamble said that the patch will set the studio up for "future things". Last month, the studio revealed that it is planning to add additional content to Mass Effect 3, including the Omega DLC slated for later this year.

On top of a further DLC for Mass Effect 3, BioWare also recently confirmed that a brand new Mass Effect game is in the works, with Casey Hudson returning as executive producer. No information is available about the game yet, but BioWare producer Michael Gamble teased in February that the studio had "so much to draw from."
