EA and Bioware have announced two free DLC projects for Mass Effect 3.
The first, slated for release on April 10, 2012, is the Resurgence Pack. It is free DLC for ME3′s coop multiplayer mode. The expansion will include two new maps (hooray!) as well as new weapons, items, and playable races.
The second is Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut, which will include longer, expanded epilogical cinematics. Note that the existing endings won’t be changed, nor will one be provided with additional choices to inform different endings. Instead, “the goal of these new scenes is to provide additional clarity and closure to Mass Effect 3.” Expect this free DLC sometime in the summer of 2012.
The Mass Effect series, which Bioware began in 2007, at last draws to a close—and it goes out with a bang. The review in brief: Mass Effect has a deep story and lore that are supported by fun and varied combat mechanics, great graphics that show off an original and unified environment aesthetic, thousands and thousands of lines of dialogue recorded by generally fine actors (many of whom you might well recognize, from Martin Sheen to half the cast of Battle Star Galactica), and a surprisingly engaging new online co-op mode. My concerns with the game are generally niggling criticisms that shouldn’t put you off from throwing yourself into the Mass Effect universe.
Check out the awesome costume Battlefield 3 online pass owners will get free for Mass Effect 3. I believe this is for the online multiplayer. Very cool bonus. Thank you EA!
“When Mass Effect 3 launches on March 6 (9 in EU), Battlefield 3 players who’ve activated their BF3 online pass will automatically have access to an exclusive human soldier kit, inspired by Battlefield 3’s awesome aesthetic. The kit will automatically be granted when you sign into the Mass Effect multiplayer using the same Origin account linked to your BF3 Online Pass.”

Here is the official Mass Effect 3 launch trailer for your viewing pleasure, courtesy of EA and Bioware. I personally can’t wait to play this Tuesday when it releases. I’m going to try and get through Mass Effect 2 this weekend to prepare.
Who else is excited?
If you missed the premiere of this trailer with Sunday’s The Walking Dead episode, then you are missing out on a great series, and here it is for you. Even if you did catch it, this one has almost a minute of additional footage.
Mass Effect 3 will release on March 6th in the US.
