EA announce Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut

The answer to all the Mass Effect 3 ending controversy is here: EA has announced Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut.

It’s free DLC then, coming to PS3, 360 and PC in the summer. It will add “additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes” to the ending, which has left many players unsatisfied.

“We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team,” said BioWare boss Ray Muzyka.

“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.”

Executive producer Casey Hudson 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.”

There’s that, then. Is this the resolution you were hoping for?
