Mass Effect 3's 'Extended Cut' Ending Coming Tomorrow

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.

    dameon51--- This isn't the true ending, they made that already... this is the ending say "We're going to bend over and take it up the @$$ from our bratty fan-boys who need to have their own way on everything"

    If someone doesn't like the ending, it doesn't make them bratty. Are you 5?

    Yea how dare people actually want what they were told they would get.

    Want me to list the lies the developers said about the ending in the last few months before the game was released?

    Can you handle that?

    I would've been okay with the Mass Effect 3 ending if each choice wasn't pretty much the exact same ending with a different color scheme. So your choice didn't really matter at all. My first reaction was "okay, whatever just happened... oh well, I don't care, it's over." Then I tried a different ending and had to sit through literally a half hour of unskippable dialogue only to see the exact same ending with a different color. And then I started to use my brain and analyzed what I just watched.

    It's not just a bad ending... it completely ignores the lore they created plus the lore they made up at the last minute for the ending plus any sort of logic even within the realm of fantasy/science fiction. If Bioware is smart, they'll pretend the Indoctrination theory was true all along because it at least can make some sense out of the horrible ending.

    Solves none of the problems.

    Getting a cold steak at a restaurant and sending it back only to get more cold steak on top isn't solving the problem.
