News just in that BioWare will release Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, a free downloadable update that will add further additional cinematic and epilogue sequences to the game’s rather crap ending this Summer.
“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 re-prioritised 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.”
Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC will remain free until April 12, 2014 following a Summer 2012 release.
