BREAKING: Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut Launches June 26
Mark your calendars everyone; today contains either great news, or an ominous portent for the future of a once great studio; after 2 months of lots of speculation for everyone, the salvation, or destruction of the Mass Effect series is finally upon us. BioWare today issued the surprise announcement that The Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will become available on June 26, just 4 days from today.
The Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut was created in response to the massive outpouring of dissatisfaction over the shoddy quality of the ending of Mass Effect 3. It will add “additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes” to expand on the confusing mishmash that left thousands of fans disgruntled, and caused an unprecedented rift in a gaming community.
Whether or not this fixes the problems remains to be seen; 2 months is not a long time to create content that actually addresses the problems people have articulated, again and again. BioWare’s initial comments on The Extended Cut have not filled naysayers with hope. Will the series be saved from ruin? Will the hole BioWare dug for themselves get deeper? We’ll all find out together at midnight on Tuesday when it becomes available for download. Game Front will be all over this, so stay tuned for our ongoing coverage.
