Player power seems to have won out as BioWare announces a free DLC pack for Mass Effect 3 which will give additional story to the incredibly controversial ending of one of the biggest titles of the year.
Ray Muzyka — BioWare co-founder — stated that:
“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.”
So it seems extra detail is being added to the end of ME3, though not the thorough change that many fans have demanded. Will the extra details help calm the rage of the fans? Or will this move just be seen as too little, too late?
In an FAQ released by BioWare this morning, there’s no doubt that there’s only so far the company is willing to go:
“Are we going to change the ending of the game? No.”
Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be free to download across platforms this summer.
