‘MASS EFFECT 3’ EXTENDED CUT DLC Attempts To Unfuck The Game’s Ending This Tuesday

That whole¬†Mass Effect 3: Unfucked Ending Edition is dropping this Tuesday. Oh boy. I’m just beginning to let the franchise and its abysmal ending fade into the cursed halls of repression in my psyche, and now they offer this up.


Mass Effect 3’s Extended Cut DLC, which adds exposition to the game’s highly controversial ending through a series of epilogues and cinematic sequences, will arrive on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this Tuesday, June 26. For European Shepards, the free update will be available on the PS3 on July 4.

The Extended Cut isn’t a new ending for the game so much as it is a Director’s Cut of sorts, which doesn’t “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,” according to the BioWare Blog.
