Bioware not getting greedy with the "new ending" DLC

Saturday, 7 April 2012

Well, one might speculate if it's good or not to release DLC that changes the original, criticized ending for Mass Effect 3, thus destroying it's meaning totally. The fan uprising against original ending made Bioware to consider about changing the ending -- which is now reality, since the DLC has been confirmed by Bioware's Muzyka and Hudson.



Earlier on we here at The Gamers Dungeon speculated whether this would had been planned move to cash out the fans. Well it seems this is not the case. Bioware has stated that the upcoming DLC will be free for download, which gives them bit respect on that part -- even if one might disagree about changing the ending. It's a brave move for sure, because Bioware cannot please both groups: controversy has split fans in two -- those who don't want the ending to change and those who do. The move will be one to remember, for it's ending one of the highly rated modern game series.

The new DLC is called "Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut" which pretty much sums up it's content, and will be released later this Summer for Xbox360, PS3, and PC -- free of charge. The exact release date is still unknown.

Bioware's Muzyka states:
"We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson (the franchise's executive producer) 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."

In addition with Hudson:
"We have reprioritised 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 personalised for each player."

I think this puts the end to the speculation what's to come. Pleased or not pleased, let us and the readers know?

  1. It's good that they listened to the public, and even better that they did not change it, but elaborated on it.
    +1 I approve of this decision.
