Bioware Releases Ending Fixing DLC for Mass Effect 3

by Ben RunningsApril 1, 2012

In an unbelievable move, Bioware has shared with the world the brand new ending for Mass Effect 3. You begged for it and they delivered. Bioware will be releasing a new piece of DLC, named ‘Mea Culpa,’ to completely overhaul the ending and also add a few things to some other parts of the game.

Naturally spoilers follow from this point on.

Here’s a breakdown of the new additions:

A new romance scene for every romance partner.

A true reveal of Tali’s face.

Legion and Wrex can now be squad members during the parts where they are on the Normandy.

A dramatically overhauled ending sequence that replaces the Citadel part of the ending. Details are as follows: Shepard shoots his way to the beacon and arrives on the Citadel. Shortly after that, Shepard finds a chair and a voice tells him/her to sit down to become the catalyst. Shepard is taken to the top of the Citadel as it begins to transform into a giant atlas mech for him/her to control. The Crucible swoops in and Shepard fashions it as a sword in the mech’s hands.

What follows is Shepard flying through space destroying the Reapers with the help of the remaining war assets based on how you played the game. What fleets are there will dramatically change the true final battle. Fleets can help you but could also become a liability that Shepard has to save or risk losing forever.

There is an ending where the universe loses to the Reapers.

Then, after the battle is won and to show your choices mean something, Shepard must now help divvy up the surviving races to the remaining planets with as little conflict as possible. You don’t want to start too many wars right after saving the universe now, do you?

After that you’ll get to choose how Shepard lives the rest of his/her life, including things like: profession after the war, home location, marriage, kids, how to deal with the annoying krogan neighbor, will you purchase a VI or AI security system for your house, staying true to your partner or not, how you act at the book signing for Liara and Javik, and much much more!

But that is not all! You will also get to view several minute long wrap ups for each surviving character that shows where they went after the war, if they got married, had kids, pursued political office, and etc.

I almost forgot to mention that this extensive DLC package is available right now, April 1st, for $5 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

If this DLC doesn’t placate fans then Bioware promises to wait a couple of weeks, make another announcement, and then put out new DLC that makes this one irrelevant.

    I have really excellent suggestions for some video games but I will not genuinely want to have video recreation designing become my profession. So is it possible to get into make contact with with a company like bioware and send them my detailed tips and photographs to them. I would probably fill a notebook entire of data for them to build the game on. So yea do you believe they will consider it into consideration or am I just throwing away my time.

    The forthcoming MMORPG will take spot appx. 300 years following Knights of the Aged Republic and the Sith Lord games. Why are they not releasing a KOTOR 3 instead?

  • Amy Lemaster

    I heard from Up Coming Gen Techniques that there was a rumor about a New zombie recreation that was to be created by Bioware. I was questioning is this true and if it really is gonna be an RPG total customizable game. I would like it to be true. But I really want to know, is it?

  • lucasg615

    My boyfriend and I want to pull a prank for April Fools on our friends. I can’t find ANY ideas that don’t include breaking up, getting married, or getting pregnant. If we said we broke up people would get legitimately upset, if we said we were getting married people would be upset when they found out it wasn’t true. A fake pregnancy is out of the question lol Please help?? Any suggestions would be awesome!!

    I always remember watching a program on BBC TV,which was explaining how the Italian farmers had to be careful with their Spaghetti trees,so that it did not grow to long.
    And I was watching it and accepting it.And did not realise for a few days it was an April Fools joke.

    Hey everyone. I’m very into April Fools, and I am planning a head this year (lol). Last year, I created a facebook page for a fake guy and said that I was in a relationship. Everyone believed it, and it went off great without a problem. This year, I’m stuck on what to do. Any ideas? I’m a 17 year old girl, if that helps. All answers are greatly appreciated!

I was already thinking of setting her clock back like, four hours, and taking out her light bulbs. And soaking her toothbrush in the liquid from the pickled garlic. And putting tape in front of her door. I’m going all out for it this year, what else could I do?

So is it possible to get into contact with a company like bioware and send them my detailed ideas and pictures to them. I would probably fill a notebook full of info for them to build the game on. So yea do you think they will take it into consideration or am I just wasting my time.

  • Ev dog

    Sooooo for St. Patricks day, we got green silly string and he never saw it coming. I need some pranks for april fools that is not silly string, something he wouldn’t expect. But it also needs to be harmless and can be done inside.

  • Sergeant Pickle

    I write a how-to column for my school newspaper and every year we have an April Fools issue where we write false stories to try and trick students into believing them.

    What do you think would be a good fake how-to column, that’s still believable?

  • Scott W
