- Reduced the max credits that can be carried from Mass Effect to Mass Effect 2 down to 100k for more balanced early-game progression

June 7 Update Game Enhancements
There isn’t much here in terms of base enhancement to all three titles, but there doesn’t have to be. The fact that Bioware is still supporting this title is a great sign, and it shows their renewed interest and dedication to the series.
I recently finished Mass Effect 2’s story, so I’m wrapping up the DLC before jumping into Mass Effect 3, but I’m already planning out my second playthrough of the series; so, having even the slightest bit of added polish and updating is great news to me, and gets me even more excited to jump into another run of this trilogy.
I’m in love with this series all over again, and seeing Bioware continue to support the launch is amazing to me. I can’t wait to get some more runs through all three of the games and grab as many achievements as I can along the way.
The dev team is really going out of their way to add post-launch polish, especially for the PC crowd, which I really commend them for.
