Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut Releases on June 26th

That's right folks, the much discussed Extended Cut DLC for Mass Effect 3 that promises to add "clarity and closure" to the existing ending of the game is set for release merely 4 days from now.  Though very little info was released by Bioware in regards to the content of the ending (likely for spoiler purposes), what we do know is that the download will be a whopping 1.9GB and that it will also provide what appears to be a fully animated epilogue to the series.  Bioware is telling players that in order to experience the full breadth of the changes to the ending, players should start playing again before the assault on the Cerberus HQ.

The DLC releases on Tuesday, June 26th for Xbox 360, PC and Playstation 3, and will arrive on Playstation 3 in Europe on July 4th.

Too bad I didn't post this as user news, I'd have ninja'd you. :P

In regards to the DLC itself...meh. I'm already dissatisfied with the whole thing to the point of indifference, so I have no faith that this release will do anything to change that.

"Clarity and Closure" must be secret words for "Not Changing a Thing"

Why can't they just change the ending and have it activate if you shoot Reaper Ghost God Child

All I wanted was an explanation as to why, not a change of the ending, if this gives me what I want, then I will be satisfied. If not then it was all for not and i leave yet again unsatisfied.

Either way, Bioware loses a customer for not doing it right the first time.

Therein lies the important thing. They fumbled on the first try.

I missed the whole sign-up earlier. So I don't know if they're going to charge for it now. Either way, I'll obtain it when I'm ready to open up an old wound.

It's a free DLC, supposedly.

Okay so is there anything else actually IN GAME beyond just what happens on the Citadel? Can't watch the youtube videos atm so just wanted to know if its worth my completing my current play through or if I'll get the same effect from watching it on youtube?

a few new cutscenes for the space battle, new dialogue options for the star child which tell you more about the reasoning behind the reapers and the first species... and a new ending which can be triggered via choosing the final renegade option with the star child or by shooting him.

This one being one of the biggest "up yours" that I've ever seen. :D

From Bioware to the ones that advocated it as being the corect approach regarding the IT, that is.

Okay so in otherwords... youtube is the solution. Not enough in game content to justify a playthrough.

Hey, it confirms IT because its revealed that it is Harbringer.

..Also with Liaras beacon I am imagining a bunch of pissed off Yangs with Thanx Cannons and Cains breeding a gigantic army and activating the citadel relay to take the fight to the Reapers. Effectively catching them offguard.

Bioware its a good thing I didn't expect much...better than the original endings, but not that much better. I also get the feeling this is all we're getting from them...

That's because it is all we're going to get from them on this matter. They'll move on to the paid DLC now, though with things as they are, what's the point? Not much reason to play anything at all (the retake omega thing is one example) if all there's to it is more points toward EMS.
