Admiral Hackett, EDI, Kaidan return for Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut DLC
The Alliance's Admiral Hackett, Kaidan Alenko and the Normandy's onboard-AI-turned-cyborg EDI will be three of the likely several characters making an appearance in Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut downloadable content, according to a G4 report.
Lance Henriksen and Tricia Helfer, the voice actors for Hackett and EDI, respectively, spoke to G4 at a recent press conference for an upcoming Tron animated series the duo is working on. They confirmed they've both recorded voice-overs for the upcoming DLC.
Raphael Sbarge, the voice actor for Kaidan Alenko, also confirmed his involvement with the DLC via his Twitter account, tweeting, "Just when you thought I would never go back, they keep PULLING me back in #MassEffect!! Recording!! Yay! Wha-hoo!" Of course, as Kaidan is a character only available to those who chose to save his life over Ashley Williams' in the original Mass Effect storyline, it seems like an extremely safe bet Williams will make an appearance in Extended Cut as well.
So what did BioWare tell these guys to get them back in the studio?
"They were saying there's a little bit of a problem with the abruptness of the ending," Henriksen told G4. "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."
Indeed, there was a "bit of a problem" with Mass Effect 3's ending, at least in the eyes of thousands of vocal fans on the Internet. BioWare responded to their complaints in early April with the announcement of Extended Cut, a free "content initiative" that would give fans some "further clarity" and "deep insights" on the end of Commander Shepard's saga.
If you did like Mass Effect 3's ending, don't worry -- yet. BioWare's Ray Muzyka, the studio's co-founder, promised the DLC would "maintain the team's artistic vision for the end of the story arc."
Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut launches on an unspecified date this summer on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
