The Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC, which was leaked a while ago, will be released in North America this week. However, the DLC won’t be available in Europe (or elsewhere outside North America) until next week – July 4th 2012 to be precise.
No reason was give for the detail in Europe, but we’re guessing its because of localisation and approval issues with the PlayStation Store.
The Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC is a downloadable content pack that will expand upon the events at the end of Mass Effect 3. Through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, the Extended Cut will include deeper insight to Commander Shepard’s journey based on player choices during the war against the Reapers.
The BioWare website states:
The Extended Cut will be available to download at no additional charge for Mass Effect 3 game owners starting on June 26 for PC and Xbox 360 customers worldwide. Playstation 3 customers in North America will be able to download the Extended Cut DLC on June 26 and the rest of the world on July 4.
