Mass Effect 3 'Extended Cut' DLC arrives next week

Publish date:

Mass Effect 3's promised ending-altering DLC will arrive next week, BioWare has announced.

Dubbed ‘Extended Cut', the free downloadable content update will hit next Tuesday, June 26th for Xbox 360 and PC along with PS3 in North America. PS3 users in Europe will receive the update on Wednesday July 4th.

The official FAQ reveals the update weighs in at 1.9 GB, so it appears there's some substance to what's being presented. That said BioWare makes it clear that while the new content adds clarity to the ending, it does not bring outright changes.

From a portion of the FAQ:

"The Extended Cut expands on the original 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."
