'Retake Mass Effect' campaign raises $67,000 for charity

Mass Effect 3 ending ‘may change’ amid protests

Flagship EA studio BioWare is deliberating whether it should change the narrative to one of its biggest games ever, following unexpected protest from disgruntled Mass Effect 3 customers who want an alternate ending to the sci-fi epic.

An online campaign, calling on BioWare to release a second-take ending, has raised an extraordinary $67,000 for charity in a matter of days.

BioWare, responding on its Facebook page, said it was “actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and has ruled nothing out”.

The studio added: “At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending. Your feedback and opinions are of the utmost importance to us.”

Organisers of the online campaign believe that Mass Effect 3 “does not provide the wide range of possible outcomes that we have come to expect” from the series.

But they add: “We would like to dispel the perception that we are angry or entitled. We simply wish to express our hope that there could be a different direction for a series we have all grown to love.”

Mass Effect 3 sold nearly one million copies globally in a single day, buoyed by rave reviews for the title
