BioWare has detailed how to access the extra ending content included in Mass Effect 3’s free Extended Cut DLC. Some spoilers ahead.
According to a handy FAQ, you won’t need a special save file prepared to access the extra content; after completing Mass Effect 3 once, any game with the DLC correctly installed will add a new “Legend” save file.
This save will take you back to just before Shepard’s assault on the Cerberus base, which triggers the end game; BioWare notes that you’ll have a number of choices to make throughout this section and may wich to reply it a few times.
The Extended Cut will release on June 26 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the US, but Europeans will have to wait until July 4 for the PlayStation 3 version.
