The “content initiatives” outlined in BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka’s online outpouring have manifested themselves as the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, due for release this Summer on PlayStation 3. The content – which pledges to bring clarity to the sequel’s controversial conclusion – will be available for free to everybody that purchased the game.
We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team. 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.
Executive producer Casey Hudson added:
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.
Let’s hope, for BioWare’s sake, that everybody enjoys the ending second time round.
It's gonna have to be good. Can you imagine if they botched it a second time? Summer is still a little while away though, surely it should be a well polished release.
They should've just stuck with the garbage ending they provided the first time around and learned from it going forward. I'd love to be wrong but I really don't think this will change things, you'll have some who like it, some who don't care for it. Bioware screwed the pooch because they were trying to set the game for post-launch DLC and it bit them in the ass. Move on and don't make the mistake in the future.
Damn, I wanted them to charge for it.
Whys everyone crying over this? What happened?
A lot of fans are crying because the press release states the DLC will be ADDING to the ending, rather than CHANGING it - which is what a lot of people wanted. Personally I think everyone should just wait and see what the FREE (it's free and it's EA?! How?!) DLC actually entails before going off on more rants lol
