Following mixed, but decidedly negative responses to the ending of Bioware‘s Mass Effect 3, DLC has been announced which will give the player a greater insight into how the choices they made within the game have affected the Mass Effect galaxy.
Essentially an epilogue which should have been part of the full game at release, the leaked product details read:
“Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut: An expanded ending for Mass Effect 3. Additional scenes and an extended epilogue reveal the impact of Shepard’s choices on the future of the galaxy.”
Several of the voice actors from the Bioware games have let some information slip via Twitter, stating that they have been recording additional dialogue, including the actors who portray Admiral Hackett and Kaiden Alenko.
A second piece of DLC, entitled Earth, expands on the multiplayer experience and adds new Earth-based locations, extra character classes and weapons, as the leaked product info reveals:
“The fighting is fiercest when it’s your home at stake! Mass Effect 3: Earth adds mods, gear, and new maps for Rio, Vancouver, and London. It features 3 new weapons: Piranha assault shotgun, Acolyte pistol, and Typhoon light machine gun. Six new human N7 classes are also available: Destroyer, Paladin, Demolisher, Slayer, Shadow, and Fury!”
Both pieces of DLC are scheduled for a summer launch, and should hopefully bring a satisfactory conclusion to the single player exerience.

Across every genre of entertainment there are specific titles or releases that become synonymous with failure, that in the eyes of fans and critics alike embody the worst that the genre has to offer. They become the universal butt of any joke in that medium, the yardstick against which every other poorly-received release is measured. [...]
