Upcoming Mass Effect 3 DLC

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.
