Free Mass Effect 3 DLC to address complaints from fans

BioWare is set to add free new content and scenes to the end of Mass Effect 3, as a direct response to the calls from fans who requested more closure to the game's story.

Mass Effect 3 launched earlier this year, and is the final game in the Mass Effect trilogy, ending the story of Commander Shepard. However, a number of fans of the series are not happy with the way in which the story ends, and even petitioned for Bioware to add alternate endings to the game in order to provide better explanations and closure.

BioWare has now revealed that it will release a special free downloadable content pack for the game, called Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, as a way to answer these calls from fans.

The DLC, due to be released this summer, will feature "further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3" and "deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes," said the company. The free DLC offer expires on April 12, 2014.

Dr. Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare, explained, "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."
