Bioware announces new ending DLC for Mass Effect 3

image

Bioware has just announced today that a new ending will be available to download for any current owners of Mass Effect 3.

Unless you have been living in a hole for the last few weeks, you have noticed that Mass Effect 3 fans have been making a bit of a fuss about the ending. Most of these complaints have been about how the player's choice should have affected the ending but didn't, as well as a large portion complaining about the lack of a difference between endings. On these forums alone, there are dozens of threads complaining about the ending, as well as a delightful thread concerning the shipment of 400 cupcakes to Bioware, as a sort of peaceful protest. Overwhelmingly, it seems fans are really angry about the ending.

Well it seems that these cries of anger have finally been answered.

Kotaku got a chance to sit down with franchise executive producer and director Casey Hudson, and was able to ask whether fans would be able to see a new ending

Hudson:
Fans will be pleased to hear that we have developed three new possible endings which take into account all the actions Shepard takes. No, this DLC will not cost anything. Yes, you can go and download it right now. No, it will not be available for players that buy the game after this announcement.

So there you have it Mass Effect 3 fans, make sure you download this DLC pack as soon as you can. PC players will be required to enter their CD key, while Xbox and PS3 players can get it from the main screen. Hudson was not clear as to how future copies of the game will be prevented from getting a piece of this deal, but it seems likely that the DLC will simply stop being free after a short while.

It's April 1st you didn't think people would catch that?

If only this wasn't April 1st, and the source link wasn't a YouTube link.

I clicked on the link just because I wanted to hear the song again.

I had 3 pages of comments last year when Justin Bieber got a gender change, so I have high hopes for this one :D

Most people are not smart enough to check what the link is before clicking on it :P

I know hey? I actually LIKE Rick Astley, so I am immune to being rickrolled by that. Rebecca Black however...

I wonder when the first person that doesn't notice is going to come in.

True, but today I'd expect people to be extra paranoid. Not to be pedantic, but there's a few spelling and grammar errors that tipped me off, too. :P

He's getting good at ruining a good time.

Oh really? I'll have to touch them up to keep up the ruse.
I made this a few days ago and I was in a bit of a hurry because I was loling so hard.

I hope someone gets REALLY REALLY mad that this isn't a thing.

Slightly unrelated note I got to Jim Carrey stand up from watching that video. I don't know how.

Welcome to youtube?
There is a whole category of videos dedicated to "how the fuck did I get here from X?"

This has been a fun April Fool's.
Captcha: be my friend.

...nah.

It is just starting :D
I am excited to see what bigger companies do with their trolling.

Shame on you for raising my hopes, even if only for the briefest of moments before my eyes alighted upon the time stamp.

Hmmm. I wonder what Blizzard have done for their April Fools joke this year. They usually have some absolute corkers.

I just checked it out, and oh man is it good xD
The credits had me rofling.

Seemed legit until they said future people wouldn't be able to get it. I was like "Wait, how does that make any sense at all?"

And then I saw the other comments....

......Riiiiight.....

Oh Blizzard...

Razer's April Fool's joke's pretty good. It's a HUD for the real world... http://www.razerzone.com/snakeeyes?utm_source=Razer&utm_campaign=Razer_SnakeEyes&utm_medium=edm_en

I expected something like this for April 1st. And I knew I wouldn't think it's funny. I find it cruel.

Sorry guys, didn't get me. Better luck next year.

Torrasque:

Kotaku

A musical break from studying. Thanks. :)
Don't mind the RickRoll either, cuz I kinda of like the song. :P
Though you did not trick me into believing it. The spelling errors gave you away. Very nice try; good luck with your prank this year!

I was wondering is this Bioware's joke, Kotaku's joke, or the OP's joke. Then I clicked on the link.

Oh I saw this coming a fair way off.
Three new endings?
All Shepard's choices affect the endings?
Downloadable right now?

Yeah, too good to be true.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TORTURE ME ESCAPIST! I HAD HOPE WHEN I READ THE TITLE!

Wait wait. A free dlc? Why it must be April the first!

Free content from EA? What a cruel joke Escapist.

In somewhat related news, people should check out google maps. It's become a new kind of awesome today.

This :D I called bullshit before I even opened the article. then I read it and clicked the sources for the inevitable rickroll I've grown to love.

Too obvious. I was actually betting this was an April Fools joke just from the title. I think the only ones you're going to get are the ones who don't know it's April 1st.

Haha nice joke Bioware. Saying the DLC will be free. You almost got me!!!

Subtle guys...

Subtle like a trainwreck :D

if only it wasn't April 1st and if only I'm sure that Bioware wont truly change the ending.

Hudson:
"No, this DLC will not cost anything."

Good effort, but you overcooked it about here.

Torrasque:
Kotaku

Jokes on you, sucker. My bros from GEMA, German organization for copyright enforcement on the internet, blocked the rick role song for us.

If you really want to fool people, try telling them it's not yet available. No one will believe it is.

Why did you even bother posting this? Think your fucking cute or something?

I probably would have been trolled by this if I didn't read the other posts or if I cared about Bioware's soap opera of video game.
