Free Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut coming this summer
Fans cried out, and BioWare listened. Today, the company announced Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, a free download that will offer gamers "deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes."
Due out this summer for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, the Extended Cut for the sci-fi role-playing game will expand on the end-game with "cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes." Specifics were not mentioned.
BioWare cofounder Ray Muzyka said, "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."
According to executive producer Casey Hudson, post-launch development initiatives for Mass Effect 3 have been "reprioritized" as a result of the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut.
Gamers have until April 12, 2014 to claim the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut. The move comes after BioWare said last month that it planned to revisit the Mass Effect 3 ending, and offer gamers new content.
