Mass Effect 3 Ending on WiiU Will Include Extended Cut Content
Remember all the hullabaloo about the Mass Effect 3 ending and how unsatisfied many people (apparently) were, infuriated even? Well, if you plan to play the game on Nintendo’s Wii U when it releases, you won’t have to experience the standard ending, as the downloadable “Extended Cut” content will be built into the game’s ending right on the disc.
“The extended ending is basically going to be part of the game instead,” said series producer Michael Gamble to Siliconera at last week’s Comic-Con. “You won’t have to download it.”
While the Extended Cut DLC was seemingly announced as a supplement to the standard ending, it now appears that Bioware is accepting this as more of the fixed ending to their narrative story arc. If that’s the case, it seems like a bad precedent-setter for future narrative games.
Then again, you can’t have a bunch of pissed-off consumers roaming the streets demanding changes to every product they purchase, can you?
If you’re upset about this news, try sending more cupcakes to Bioware in your unbridled rage – that apparently worked last time.
