Finish the fight

Those of you offended by Mass Effect 3’s original conclusion will finally get closure next week, when the hotly anticipated Extended Cut DLC pack lands on the US PlayStation Store on 26th June. European players will have an additional week to prepare for the true ending, as the content will not arrive overseas until 4th July.

The expansion – which is roughly 2GB in size – will add clarity to the conclusion through a series of additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes. Unfortunately, you’ll need to play through the game’s intensely frustrating final mission again to unlock access to the added content. Urgh.

If you’d like to know more about the expansion pack, Mass Effect community manager Jessica Merizan sat down with executive producer Casey Hudson and leader writer Mac Walters to eke out some extra information. You can listen to the discussion below.
