After being announced quite some time ago, BioWare will finally release the “Extended Cut” downloadable content for Mass Effect 3 that further sheds light on the game’s controversial ending next Tuesday, June 26, 2012.

The DLC will further expand on the ending of Mass Effect 3, hopefully tempering the flames of fans that felt disappointed with the game’s original, open-ended finale.

"The Extended Cut is an expansion of the original endings to Mass Effect 3," says BioWare. "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.

"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."

If this is something you’re interested in, you can download it for free next Tuesday. The content will require roughly 1.9 GBs of storage space. It will release for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions of the title.
