PSA: Start Downloading the Mass Effect 3 Ending DLC on Xbox Now
Good evening friends. It seems the time is finally upon us: the free Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC is available now on Xbox Live for you to download. Our downloads are running right now. Soon, we shall know all that BioWare wishes to tell us.
It seems finding the DLC on either Xbox.com or on the Mass Effect 3 DLC list from the game menu can be a bit haphazard, so if you’re looking to start downloading the 1.85 GB file immediately, use this link.
If you’re looking to play on Playstation 3 or PC, you’ll have to wait. According to the official Mass Effect 3 Twitter feed, expect your PC download on Origin about noon PST today; on the Playstation Network, it’ll likely be later in the afternoon.
BioWare has noted repeatedly that the Extended Cut won’t include new endings — just more scenes of “context” aimed at “closure.” We’re still not really sure what that means, although after listening to BioWare’s internal interview with Director Casey Hudson and Lead Writer Mac Walters, we’re a bit skeptical.
While you wait for the DLC to download, check out all our Mass Effect 3 ending coverage to date with the Game Front Mass Effect 3 Ending Primer, and stay tuned today and this week: we’ll have reviews from me (Phil Hornshaw) and Ross Lincoln of the DLC later today, plus an analysis editorial, and more community coverage and video stretching over the next few days.
