Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC Will Feature Admiral Hackett, EDI, Kaidan

BioWare has been very tight-lipped about the content in Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut DLC, which is designed to fill out the game's ending. However, we at least know of three main characters that will be appearing in this DLC.

Lance Henriksen and Tricia Helfer confirmed to G4 that they've both recently done some voiceover work for BioWare for "Extended Cut." Henriksen and Helfer voiced Admiral Hackett and EDI, respectively in the Mass Effect series.

"I just did another session with them...They were saying there's a little bit of a problem with the abruptness of the ending," Hendriksen said in the interview. "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."

Commander Shepard's other crew members will be making another appearance as well. Raphael Sbarge, the voice of Kaidan Alenko, confirmed earlier this month that he's been working with BioWare as well.

"Just when you thought I would never go back, they keep pulling me back in Mass Effect. Recording,” tweeted Sbarge.

When BioWare announced Extended Cut, they mentioned that it would add new cinematics. However, they've been careful to point out that it won't just be cutscenes. Their aim is to make ME3's endings more personalized so that players choices are reflected.

BioWare plans to release Extended Cut this summer for free. The backlash against the game's original endings was so strong that this DLC will really need to be something special to win back gamers' trust. Hopefully BioWare is up to the task.
