The long awaited extended cut for Mass Effect 3 has been a longtime coming and at long last, it has a release date– June 26th to be exact. No need to check your vision, the Extended Cut is really just four days away from release! Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be a free game update that will, rather than create a new ending, expand on the game’s current ending.
You can read more about it on Bioware’s main page or check out an interview with Executive Producer Casey Hudson, Lead Writer Mac Walters, and Community Manager Jessica Merizan. In the meantime, get your ME3 saves ready to go as you’ll have to load a saved game from the Cerberus Base attack section in order to experience the extended cut.
“The Extended Cut expands on the endings of Mass Effect 3 through additional scenes and epilogue sequences. It provides more of the answers and closure that players have been asking for. It gives a sense of what the future holds as a result of the decisions made throughout the series. And it shows greater detail in the successes or failures based on how players achieved their endings. The Extended Cut is an expansion of the original endings to Mass Effect 3. It does not fundamentally change the endings, but rather it expands on the meaning of the original endings, and reveals greater detail on the impact of player decisions.”
