BioWare has officially announced that it will be releasing a free extended cut update for Mass Effect 3 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The new content is designed to make people less angry about the game’s controversial ending, and provides “additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes” to the ending.
BioWare has stated that the extended cut is for players “seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 and deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes”.
“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,” said BioWare big cheese Ray Muzyka.
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.”
The Extended Cut update is expected to be released in the next few months.
