Bioware and EA have announced Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, a free DLC pack that will expand upon the events at the end of Mass Effect 3. The pack will arrive this summer for free, and “through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, will give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes.”
“We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder of BioWare. “Since launch, we have had time to listen to the feedback from our most passionate fans and we are responding.”
“With the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut we think we have struck a good balance in delivering the answers players are looking for while maintaining the team’s artistic vision for the end of this story arc in the Mass Effect universe.”
Last month Bioware has confirmed it is indeed planning on changing Mass Effect 3’s controversial ending, and it seems like they are true to their word.
No further information was given on the DLC pack (or any other future DLC), but Casey Hudson, executive Producer of the Mass Effect series, did add “We have reprioritized our post-launch development efforts to provide the fans who want more closure with even more context and clarity to the ending of the game, in a way that will feel more personalized for each player.”
Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this summer for free until April 12, 2014.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
