on April 5, 2012 1:00 PM

BioWare announced today that the developer will release a DLC named Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, adding cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes,  in order to “give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes.”

The DLC will be released this summer and will be downloadable for free on all platforms.

Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of EA’s BioWare Label commented:

We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team. Since launch, we have had time to listen to the feedback from our most passionate fans and we are responding. With the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut we think we have struck a good balance in delivering the answers players are looking for while maintaining the team’s artistic vision for the end of this story arc in the Mass Effect universe.

Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series added:

We have reprioritized our post-launch development efforts to provide the fans who want more closure with even more context and clarity to the ending of the game, in a way that will feel more personalized for each player.

Whether the new Extended Cut will actually satisfy the malcontent or not, we don’t know, but at the very least it’ll come free of charge. I do hate to say “I told you so” but… well, no. I don’t…
