June 22, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

BioWare has announced the release date for Mass Effect 3‘s Extended Cut DLC, in addition to some details about what players can expect from it.

The developer revealed on the official Mass Effect site that the Extended Cut DLC will arrive on June 26th. The content will be free and require roughly 1.9GB of storage.

The Extended Cut is described as follows:

The Extended Cut expands on the endings of Mass Effect 3 through additional scenes and epilogue sequences. It provides more of the answers and closure that players have been asking for. It gives a sense of what the future holds as a result of the decisions made throughout the series. And it shows greater detail in the successes or failures based on how players achieved their endings.

The Extended Cut is an expansion of the original endings to Mass Effect 3. It does not fundamentally change the endings, but rather it expands on the meaning of the original endings, and reveals greater detail on the impact of player decisions.

To access the content, players need to load a save from the Cerberus Base and play through to the end of the game.

BioWare Community Manager Jessica Merizan, Executive Producer Casey Hudson, and Lead Writer Mac Walters sat down to have a podcast about the Extended Cut content, which can be heard below:
