The pre-fan protest single player DLC plan Bioware and EA had for Mass Effect 3 is about to get underway. Today, a plot synopsis for "Leviathan," the first piece of story-related content released since the "Extended Cut" ending, was officially released into the wild.
“Leviathan expands upon the events of Mass Effect 3 with gripping and emotional storytelling, compelling new characters, powerful weapons and unique upgrades,” reads the synopsis. ”Players will be able to discover more about the origins of the reapers as they race across the galaxy to unravel the mystery that surrounds the fabled Leviathan (something powerful enough to kill a Reaper).”
A few spoiler-heavy details on “Leviathan” became public knowledge last month thanks to a leak, but I won’t address those here. Out of all the legitimate information put forth by the companies, no solid release date was mentioned. “Later this summer” was the best they had to offer.
Sadly, even with the “Extended Cut” ending and the promise of additional story expanding DLC, this game continues to be quite divisive. A quick glance at any online video game forum reveals that an overwhelming amount of former Mass Effect fans still refuse to revisit the series. Have you completed Mass Effect 3 with the “Extended Cut” ending? If so, please leave your thoughts in the comments below. And please, be civil.
