Even though the new DLC is free, there is a cost to extending your Mass Effect 3 experience – 1.9 GB of hard drive space.
The new DLC, which releases today on Xbox 360 and PC, will rework the entire ending sequence, allowing you to relive things in an entirely new light. Unfortunately PS3 owners will have to wait until July 4, however at least it’s not a month wait eh?
The Extended Cut DLC will be available later today on PS3 (US only), PC and Xbox 360, but not until 4th July on PS3 in Europe.
Looking at the Extended Cut FAQ provided by Bioware tells us that the DLC “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.
“It does not,” says the FAQ, “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.”
We’ll be interested to hear what you think of this new extended ending, so do let us know.
