Default Mass Effect 3 Ending Gets Expanded in Upcoming DLC

Following an incredible backlash over the ending of Mass Effect 3, BioWare promised last month that it would address the complaints of those who were displeased with the way Commander Shepard's story came to an end. The way in which it plans to do that was briefly outlined today, although we won't be getting our hands on the solution for another few months.

Put simply, there were two sides that most people could fall on in this debate: Those who are upset with the ending and want a new one (or at least more content) and those who believe BioWare should be free to do what they want with their game's story (and therefore don't want a new ending). As intimated last month, BioWare is going for a middle ground between the two. It today announced plans to release a downloadable content pack called Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut. The goal of it is to provide additional closure for fans who are seeking it after pouring in dozens of hours across the Mass Effect games.

It's important to make clear that this is not a new ending for the game. Instead, the DLC is described as being comprised of "additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes" meant to "give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes." That's as specific as BioWare would get, and that is probably for the best as saying any more could potentially spoil the game for those who have yet to finish it or could be cause for further complaints. The best way to evaluate this solution is undoubtedly going to be experiencing it for yourself.

"We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team," said BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka in a press release sent out today. "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."
