'Mass Effect 3' Extended Cut includes hidden data on future DLC

More to come


The new Mass Effect 3 DLC ending includes hidden files regarding new Leviathan DLC.

Yesterday's release of the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut included information hidden by BioWare that pertains to a new DLC pack.

The following post contains spoilers.

Part of its script, as found by the BioWare Social Network, is now available on Pastebin and includes dialogue from the game's main characters, Eurogamer reports.

According to the data, the new DLC expansion focuses on a Reaper defector called Leviathan who has spent 10 years controlling a Reaper-indoctrinated mining colony that Shepard must infiltrate to save scientist Ann Brynson. Brynson can either live or die depending on your choices.

One line of dialogue suggests we will learn more about the history behind the Reapers, including those that created them.

"So the Reapers did not fully exterminate their creators. That suggests they are fallible, even on large or long-term scales."

Leviathan was referenced previously in the Mass Effect lore. In Mass Effect 1, scanning a planet revealed "The Leviathan of Dis," a corpse of a living starship. Following this, Mass Effect 3 includes a reference by character Balak who hints that the Leviathan was a dormant Reaper accidentally reactivated by the Batarians.

Mass Effect 3 producer Mike Gamble teased on his Twitter yesterday that more in-game content was on its way for the game.

"Would now be a good time to talk about how we're doing more DLC in the future?" he wrote, adding, "As I've said before, we do this for you! EC was our gift to the fans. Hope you enjoyed. Also... keep your ears open over the next little while."

No release date is confirmed for the upcoming DLC.
