Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC Release Dated for Next Week
The Extended Cut DLC for Mass Effect 3 has been confirmed and dated for release next week.
BioWare has confirmed its plans to release the Extended Cut DLC for Mass Effect 3 on June 26 in North America. European gamers will only get it on July 4 due to the company's extensive localization process. The DLC includes highly requested content by the Mass Effect 3 community, which was displeased by the way the game ended.
Many players found the ending to Mass Effect 3 highly disappointing for its abruptness and failure to adhere to the trilogy's choice-driven narrative. Their anger lead to widespread complaints and prompted BioWare to announce an ending that will hopefully provide answers sought by players who demanded a more definitive ending.
The release of the Extended Cut DLC has pushed back BioWare's prior plans for additional singleplayer content, which were rumored to take place in other locations in the Mass Effect universe—including Omega Station.
BioWare says that the Extended Cut is an "expansion of the original endings" rather than a fundamental change, revealing in greater detail the impact of the player's decisions throughout the trilogy.
The Extended Cut DLC will be available for free on all three platforms for the game. It weighs 1.9gb and can be downloaded from Xbox LIVE, Origin on PC, and PlayStation Network.
