If you were unhappy with the ending of Mass Effect 3, you weren’t alone. For those of you who weren’t, BioWare has come up with an apparent solution.
Since the release of Mass Effect 3 a few weeks back, there has been a lot of controversy over what many have considered to be a lackluster ending. There was enough of an outcry that BioWare addressed their fans and critics, and it promised that some new content would be coming to solve it. Joey Davidson, our resident gaming editor, stated in detail why he felt this was unnecessary, but all the same, it’s becoming a reality.
IGN is reporting that BioWare made the DLC patch official today, saying that it would launch this summer and be free so long as you downloaded it prior to April 2014. Studio founder Dr Ray Muzyka said of the decision,”Since launch, we have had time to listen to the feedback from our most passionate fans and we are responding.” He went on to add, “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.”
The Extended Cut DLC will consist of new cinematics as well as epilogue scenes that will expand on the ending and provide more insight as to what happened.
No exact release date for the DLC has been listed as of yet.
