Casey Hudson Says You’ll Be Able To Alter Your Imported Character in Mass Effect 3

Ha! I got you ┬áto click on this link even though all the news here is in the headline. Why don’t you stay a while?

So, one of my biggest gripes about Mass Effect 2 is that when you import a character you either have to accept him or her as is or rebuild him or her completely. Casey Hudson tweets that that will not be the case with Mass Effect 3.

“Yes, you will be able to tweak your imported #ME2 character in #ME3.”

Good. To be honest, I’m amazed they never patched ME2 to allow you to do that. I would have liked to give some of my FemSheps a trim when the hair turned out a little weird.

It’s been awhile and my memory is a little fuzzy, but I’m pretty sure you can tweak imported characters in ME2; you just have to be a little sneaky about it.

I imported my char from ME1 and didn’t like his jawline. If you open the squad page and look at the top of Shepherd’s screen you’ll see the identity code. If you write that badboy down and punch it in creating a new character it will give you all the presets used to replicate your ME1 character, which you can then edit to your liking.

Works the same way as people trading Shepherd appearance codes on the forums.

I wonder what excuse they’ll give for changing up Shepard’s face this time…
