Mass Effect 3 - Extended Cut

Since it's release, there has been many complaints and protests regarding the end of Mass Effect 3. These all claim that the ending leaves too much unfinished business. A few weeks ago Bioware announced they would be releasing free DLC content that would add hours to the game in an attempt to wrap up all of the untold stories. Today the official release date has been announced and don't worry, you won't have to wait long. The DLC is set for release on June 26th



The 1.9GB update delivers additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes that is set to give a “deeper insight to Commander Shepard’s journey based on player choices during the war against the Reapers.”

It is also said to give “a sense of what the future holds as a result of the decisions made throughout the series. And it shows greater detail in the successes or failures based on how players achieved their endings.”

*Spoiler to anyone who has not finished the game before* In order to get the most out of the DLC, BioWare recommends you load a save before the attack on the Cerberus Base and play through till the end of the game from there. BioWare notes that the endings don’t change, they’re just fleshed out and they will differ depending on choices made throughout the entire Mass Effect series, noting that “multiple playthroughs with a variety of different decisions will be required to experience the variety of possibilities offered by the new content”.

So there you have it, you’ll be able to experience the new Mass Effect 3 fully fleshed out endings next week! There will be no cost for this DLC right away, but it will cost you as of April next year. Batten down the hatches, we’re going to save Earth… again!
