Since it’s release On Tuesday, many fans have been poking around Mass Effect 3′s directory and discovered the audio and animation files relating to the prothean team member obtained in From Ashes, the day one DLC pack. While many people are claiming that the download size (600 MB) is too hefty for disc locked DLC, these files are leading others to believe that BioWare has not been entirely honest regarding this subject.
The controversy regarding From Ashes stems from the fact that the paid DLC containing a potentially game-changing squad mate was released the same day as the game itself. Fans argue that BioWare intentionally withheld intriguing content from the game in order to charge a premium, while BioWare has stated that From Ashes was developed separately after the core game was completed.
Charging for content developed separately from the main game is an understandable practice but when said content is developed alongside the game,despite telling your fans otherwise, something is wrong.
We have contacted BioWare for clarification and will update this article with any response.
