Mass Effect 3’s Extended Ending To Feature Some Familiar Faces

I’ve made a commitment to not – ever – play Mass Effect 3 purely on the basis that all the furore over the ending has spoiled any meaningful effect the rest of the game might have on me. It might be the best adventure/TPS/RPG in the world, but I can’t be bothered with it – the petitions and forum threads dedicated to letting BioWare know they’ve made the mistake of a lifetime put me off.


Still, EA and the developers are pressing on with that apparently fan-pleasing alternative extended ending, and it looks like they’re pulling in some familiar faces to bolster the authenticity of the DLC.

G4 are reporting that the talent behind Admiral Hackett and EDI are back, to name but two, with comments from Lance Henriksen and Tricia Helfer. “I’m voicing some more Mass Effect on Monday,” said Helfer. Henriksen’s also down on record as commenting about the ending. “I just did another session with them,” he said.

“They were saying there’s a little bit of a problem with the abruptness of the ending, so we did a whole series of things to add to the end of the game, to live up to the quality they’ve been doing.”

Raphael Sbarge, who plays Marine Kaidan Alenko, is also onboard for more ADR.



  1. I honestly don’t know why they’re bothering, the game is old now (comparatively) and I’m not sure I’ll bother watching this new ending. It seems I was one of the very few who actually enjoyed the actual ending to the actual game they actually made.
    Still need to finish insanity for platinum but I’m in no hurry.

    • I’Il probably get this jut to see how my choices panned out in the end. But I agree with u, minus the part about choices not make much difference, the ending in itself was quite good. Although our previous choices didn’t make much difference, our final choice was quite a hard one from all perspectives, emotionally, logically ect ect. Which I thought was the aim of entire series anyway, and in that respect they executed really well.

    • It’s old?!
      It came out in March!

      • Comparatively old yes. The way people game these days is buy the game, complete it and move on to the nxt one. Most people have moved on from me3 now.

  2. It does seem a bit daft. Most people who would see the ending already have. Will I go back to see it again? Probably not.

  3. What happened to the new ending being free? at the end of the trailer it says you can pre-order now.

    Don’t think I’ll bother with buying this as it should have been in the game from the start, not the ending we got that ruins the whole series in my opinion.

    • That’s a trailer for the Mass Effect 3 game, not the DLC.
      The release date is in the backwards American style.

  4. Still can’t believe Bioware were very lazy with the ending for ME3. I’ve heard that the original endings that they had planned involved Mass Effect and i think the dying star from ME2. Would have preferred if they did a DAO style slideshow at the end of ME3 after the ending and prehaps have the bloke who narrates the codex narrate the endings for each character.

    I would prefer that the 3 endings that we have are just a figure of Shep’s imagination and Harbinger is the final boss in the extended ending as he does naff all in ME3. :(

  5. Sounds interesting. Still think the moaners are just pissed they didnt get the warm and fuzzys they hoped for. Its a good ending and the abruptness adds to that.

  6. I really liked the ending for me that is the true bioware ending.
