Leaked Info on Mass Effect 3 “Earth” and “Extended Cut” DLC

The Reddit user who previously leaked accurate info regarding ME3 DLC has once again posted information about potential additional content. According to derptemp6698, “Earth” is a multiplayer expansion featuring three new maps, three new weapons, and six new classes. The “Extended Cut” DLC will offer “Additional scenes and an extended epilogue reveal the impact of Shepard’s choices on the future of the galaxy,” according to the Reddit user, though he offers no source.

It’s a bit of a luxury to have a virtually unlimited amount of time to create a decent ending, isn’t it? Despite the popularity of multiplayer, I can’t help but imagine if BioWare had focused more time on crafting a better ending as opposed to planning an apparent onslaught of continuous MP expansions, there would be no need for an “Extended Cut” in the first place.

Nothing on possible release dates for either pack, but BioWare has previously stated that free content addressing the ending will release this summer.

It’s funny because the original ending to ME3 was leaked, and as a result of that they pushed back the ME3 release.

People keep leaking the more EA/Bioware is going to change.

I played about two days of Multiplayer, decided it was all the exact same, and went on my way. Don’t add multiplayer if it interferes with your singleplayer campaign, not everything needs it.

The SUPPOSED reason that EA/Bioware changed the original script is because a lot of people disliked the ending, so I guess they felt like making a worse ending to SHOW THOSE DARN PEOPLE THEIR ORIGINAL ENDING IS BETTER! Or something

Well said, I can’t help but feel that the insistence on including multiplayer has eaten into the budget/time of the games development. That ending was beyond awful, never seen anything quite like it (no, that is definitely NOT a good thing). I can’t believe that BW would intentionally release something that bad, I know EA are bad, but I can’t think they, in all their evil splendor, would think that this controversy and mass refunds of ME3 is a good idea.

I don’t understand the thrill of the multiplayer. It’s good, but its SO REPETITIVE. Every match is exactly the same as the one before, just in a different place with different character skins essentially. I have no doubt that without any multiplayer this game would have ended the way we all wanted. The irony is that if it had ended how I hoped, I would have gladly played the entire game through several more times. Probably the entire trilogy as well. So (at least in my case) Bioware killed the games replayability by adding multiplayer. If I’m going to play multiplayer, I’m going to play something like Halo or Battlefield. Always.

@Andy

There’s more people who liked the ending or didn’t care about the ending than players who hated it.

If none of the hardcore fanboys (which most everyone that hates the current ending read the leaked script) didn’t leak the original script Bioware/EA wouldn’t of had to change it.

So cry more and be grateful Bioware is even doing anything at all, I don’t know where people got this feeling of being so entitled with a video game all of a sudden.

“There’s more people who liked the ending or didn’t care about the ending than players who hated it.”

There’s also more people who didn’t even complete the game.

But there’s definitely more people who hated the ending than the ending of various other game franchises. And it had nothing to do with the leaked script. I didn’t read or even know its general lines.
It’s more a matter of internal consistency, ill-conducted developments and tacked characters.
To make it short, it’s hard to care about the future of organics when the whole ending has nothing organic.

I didn’t like the ending, but it’s worse that it didn’t really make any sense. In any case, it didn’t ruin my enjoyment of the rest of the series and ME3 was still the most fun video game I’ve played this year except maybe Arkham City. People who let their hatred of the ending blind them to the good qualities of ME3 are doing themselves a disservice.
