Bioware Bringing New Ending To Mass Effect 3 This Summer

Bioware Bringing New Ending To Mass Effect 3 This Summer

The pressure has worked. EA and Bioware will be releasing Mass Effect 3 DLC this summer that will change the game’s ending for those who’ve been calling for it. Quotes from EA and ME3 producer Casey Hudson below the break.

It’s called Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, a free DLC pack that will expand on the game’s ending, hopefully bringing closure to the franchise-damaging issue.

Said EA: “Through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes. Coming this summer, the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be available for download on the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and PC for no extra charge.”

“We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team,” Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of EA’s BioWare Label added. “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.”

Finally, here’s the man who’s apparently solely responsible for the game’s controversial ending: “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,” Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series said.

    But how? EA is the devil on Earth… Free? No no no it’s not free… They have no souls…

    ^LOL. well at least its free. EA could have pulled a capcom or square enix and make you pay for the ending. but considering the magnitude of the situation, this was their only choice tbh.

    why couldent you do this in the first place?
    i was so pissed off with the ending, i mean you dont even get to see what happens with half your team!
    not to mention what happens to other planets.
    for a game so set on the greater good, it sure knows how to turn its back on its core values!

    @nick….the ME3 ending was one of the biggest disappointments in video games for me. Still can’t beleive they screwed up the game so bad…and up untill the end the game was AMAZING.

    i was disappointed with pretty much the whole thing.
    im doing a piece on it now but basically everything felt seriously rushed!
    you cant interact with strangers to gain side missions like you could in ME2.
    the side missions themselves were as entertaining as watching the grass grow!
    and there were far fewer interaction with the crew i really missed the loyalty missions.
    whole game just felt rushed!
    not to mention the ending itself there were suppose to be massive variations but there not.
    reading IGNs ending wicki on it really saddened me how little variation there is in the endings.
    the ending was so vague i did not even get to see what happened to my romance!
    i met up with miranda in the citadel just before the last mission, then spoke to her on earth and thats the last i ever saw of her.
    so is she still alive?
    how about grunt and the rest of my crew that came with me?
    i honestly have not played a game with such a vague ending ever!!!!!!!
    everythings just to be assumed!
