Mass Effect fans, whether you want it or not, tomorrow marks the “true” end of the Mass Effect series with the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC.
The game’s original ending incited fan anger for reasons running the gamut of not offering enough choice to not being canon with the original Mass Effect. One fan even took to appealing to the Better Business Bureau about the Mass Effect ending, accusing it of “false advertisement” for not giving players a wide berth of choices for the ending.
BioWare’s releasing the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC to offer clarification to the ending, hoping to assuage some fan anger.
An official FAQ’s been released regarding the Extended Cut in anticipation for its release tomorrow on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. According to the FAQ, the Extended Cut DLC will be made available for no additional charge and will “[expand] on the meaning of the original endings, and [reveal] greater detail on the impact of player decisions.”
The FAQ also details which save game should be loaded to play it, although due to spoilers we won’t reveal it here. You can find the information yourself on the official FAQ here.
