Mass Effect Extended Cut DLC adds “clarity” to ending. Bioware “reprioritized post-launch development”

The ending of Mass Effect 3 is to get ending specific LDC aimed at adding “clarity” and “deeper insights” to the trilogy’s final moments. The DLC’s free and due this summer.

The full statement reads:

“Through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes. Coming this summer, the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be available for download on the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and PC for no extra charge.”

“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 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.”

That last paragraph’s amazing, “We have reprioritized our post-launch development efforts” says Hudson. Essentially he’s saying ‘that new thing we were making? We had to stop’. Is everyone happy now? Good, let’s move on.
