For the last week or so there have been numerous complaints about the ending to Mass Effect 3. We will not spoil anything here, but it has been called one of the worst endings to a videogame ever. Some fans went even as far as complaining to the FTC about it. Now that may seem a little extreme, but when you devote the amount of time it takes to beat a trilogy of games you should expect a grand payoff in the end.
Well Bioware has heard the uprising and will be releasing the info about a new ending come sometime in April. We will keep you updated as soon as we find out more info.
“I believe passionately that games are an art form, and that the power of our medium flows from our audience, who are deeply involved in how the story unfolds, and who have the uncontested right to provide constructive criticism. At the same time, I also believe in and support the artistic choices made by the development team. The team and I have been thinking hard about how to best address the comments on ME3’s endings from players, while still maintaining the artistic integrity of the game.
Mass Effect 3 concludes a trilogy with so much player control and ownership of the story that it was hard for us to predict the range of emotions players would feel when they finished playing through it. The journey you undertake in Mass Effect provokes an intense range of highly personal emotions in the player; even so, the passionate reaction of some of our most loyal players to the current endings in Mass Effect 3 is something that has genuinely surprised us. This is an issue we care about deeply, and we will respond to it in a fair and timely way. We’re already working hard to do that.”
