In the end, rebellious Mass Effect 3 fans are going to get exactly what they wanted.
After a few weeks of serious fan backlash over the final moments of Mass Effect 3, Bioware announced Wednesday on its website that it will redo the ending to its fabled space trilogy.
“It’s incredibly painful to receive feedback from our core fans that the game’s endings were not up to their expectations,” Bioware co-founder and general manager Ray Muzyka said. “Our first instinct is to defend our work and point to the high ratings offered by critics — but out of respect for our fans, we need to accept the criticism and feedback with humility.”
The statement seemed to take recognition of both fan comments and the huge amount of work the Bioware staff had put into the Mass Effect saga.
The game’s latest version debuted to rave reviews earlier this month, and provided some of the most impressive play in the series, as lead character Commander Shepard finally led Earth and the rest of the Milky Way against the powerful conquering race known as the Reapers.
The latest game earned a top five-star rating from The Daily News and was similarly lauded throughout the gaming community.
