BioWare's new extension to the ending of Mass Effect 3 is well underway as actors Lance Henriksen, Tricia Helfer and Raphael Sbarge all mention getting back to the sound booth.
Dubbed the 'Extended Cut', BioWare will be releasing a lengthier ending to better explain events as the trilogy of Commander Shephard closes. They aren't changing the outcomes.
This is an extended ending, not a rewrite. The studio has had to be quite clear on that - the outcomes will remain the same but we get a better narrative send off and summary.
Lance Henriksen plays Admiral Steven Hackett, and he told G4: "I just did another session with them... They were saying there's a little bit of a problem with the abruptness of the ending. 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." Henriksen is perhaps better known for his role in Aliens.
Tricia Helfer, who voices Normandy AI EDI, has said: "I'm voicing some more Mass Effect on Monday." The actress played in the amazing series Battlestar Galatica as Caprica-Six, alongside Gaius Baltar.
Raphael Sbarge, the voice behind Kaidan Alenko, also confirmed: "Just when you thought I would never go back, they keep PULLING me back in #MassEffect!! Recording!! Yay! Wha-hoo!" Sbarge has most recently starred in the TV series Once Upon a Time, but also featured in Burn Notice and Dexter.
Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut releases this summer for free.
