Bioware Caves In To Angry Mass Effect Gamers Requests

In a press release posted today by Electronic Arts, developer Bioware has announced the release of a Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC that will “expand upon the events” of the game through “additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes”.

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

Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series 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.”

How this extended content will play out still remains a mystery.  It’s insinuated that Shepard still dies, but the content provided will expand the story to provide a more varied result than the minimal changes between the Paragon, Synergy, and Renegade endings.  The DLC pack is slated to be released sometime this summer at no extra charge to gamers on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
