BioWare to release Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC this summer, bringing a new ending to ME3
Here's a fact: a lot of people hate Mass Effect 3's ending. So much so that for weeks, segments of the Internet assailed BioWare, demanding that changes be made.
But now the enraged fans can rest easy, for BioWare has a remedy on the way. The studio and EA announced that Mass Effect: Extended Cut, a free download for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, will "give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes."
BioWare's co-founder and general manager, Dr. Ray Muzyka, said the following in a statement: "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."
I mentioned that the download is free. However, it will only be free until April 12. Worry not, though, for the offer expires on that date in 2014. So, no rush there. To be eligible for the free download, players must have an account on EA's Origin, PlayStation Network, or Xbox LIVE.
Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be available this summer. Hopefully, angered fans will finally have their satisfaction. Do you think the DLC will deliver the proper ending to the Mass Effect saga for which many are longing? Feel free to talk about it in the comment box below.
