Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut

All is right in the world now. Well, at least for those of us – myself included – who were upset with the conclusion to BioWare’s Mass Effect 3. Today BioWare announced Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, a DLC pack that will “give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes.”

From BioWare’s press release:

“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.”

Naturally, the question on every fan’s mind is this: how much?


Assuming you have purchased the game or will purchase it by April 12, you will receive Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut without any additional charge. The game promises to add new “cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes.” How this will affect the present ending is yet to be announced, but I certainly think fans will rejoice at this announcement.

Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut is due for release sometime this summer.

  1. It sounds like they’re just adding in a few cutscenes. I don’t see how this really relates the the over-arching issue of the ending having nothing to do with any of the decisions you made.

    1. ok so lets see the ps3 is the oldest to date 3d comaatpble bluray player not to mention the ps3 media server whic lets me stream hd and 3d movies from my computer. PS3 has 256 xdr ram and 256 gddr3 which is much better than the 512 gddr3 ram forget about the lousy edram which is too little for most games even while ps3 gets free mlaa. PS3 has better lighting and physics first of all which is probably the biggest factor in games and isnt any worse at most other things as well. Plus nowadays multiplats are getting to be eiter equal to their 360 counterparts or even better than them. Ok so psn was offline for 2 weeks big fu*king deal!!! I havent ha problems with it before this and i probably wont have any problems playig online after. I cant wait to see all of you 360 fanboys faces after 2011 ends in tears lololol.VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)

  2. The “epilogue sequence” is what makes me think there’s going to be more content than just that. Simply because it could be done similarly to how Dragon Age: Origins (Which I know you loved. ;P) did it.
