BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 has gone gold, but Executive Producer Casey Hudson has revealed that the team isn’t stopping there. Just like Mass Effect 2, the conclusion to BioWare’s epic space opera will see new content through DLC packs.
“We are going to be supporting Mass Effect 3 for quite some time,” said Hudson. “Because I think people are going to have a lot of fun with multiplayer, and we’ll be supporting that with new content as we go forward.
“We also have a really good DLC plan, like we had for Mass Effect 2, so there will be new adventures and new things to do. Then, beyond that, we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Hudson also revealed plans for the series outside of the gaming medium. According to the executive producer, BioWare and Dark Horse Comics are working on something, and a feature film as well as an anime adaptation are in the works.
“All these things tell different facets of the overall storyline, but it’s still ultimately the full story of the trilogy. So when fans check out a novel, a comic-book or a movie, they’re seeing parts of the same story that really flesh out the details we can’t otherwise show you in the game.”
Mass Effect 3 is out March 6 in North America and March 9 in Europe for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Both the single player and multiplayer demos are now available to the general public across the respective platforms.
