EA & BioWare have announced the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut. A free DLC pack for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with the aim of addressing the controversial ending of the game.

It will provide “additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes” to the ending, and is expected to hit players PCs and consoles this summer.

Bioware say that the Extended Cut is designed to give players “seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 a deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes”,

BioWare’s Dr. Ray Muzyka commented: “We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson 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.”

Thankfully the DLC will be completely free to owners of Mass Effect 3 and should, hopefully, douse the flames of the raging fans complaining about the current state of the end to the final instalment of Bioware’s trilogy.
