Report: Mass Effect 3 'Leviathan' DLC adds ending dialogue

The upcoming "Leviathan" DLC will apparently add some extra dialogue options to the ending as well, according to script files extracted from the Extended Cut.


BioWare already made some fairly large changes to the ending of Mass Effect 3 in response to fan complaints, but more might be on the way. Some script information buried in the Extended Cut downloadable content seems to imply that playing the upcoming Leviathan DLC will make even further changes. Spoilers follow.

Eurogamer reports that the Leviathan race had a hand (or tentacle) in making the Reapers, echoing the theme of organics versus synthetics present at the end of the game. If you play through the ending after playing Leviathan, you'll be presented with additional dialogue options at the end, to learn more about the Leviathans' untimely demise.

The full ending dialogue options were extracted from the Extended Cut and posted on the BioWare forums. Click through if you're curious about the additional dialogue, but not curious enough to buy a DLC pack and then play through the ending again.

Keep in mind that this is second-hand and through file extraction, so it's impossible to tell what will make the final cut. Shacknews has contacted BioWare regarding the changes and will update as more information becomes available.

        They just add in some back history fluff Leviathan are the race that created the Reapers. So the space kid talks about them a bit. And continues the whole Reapers are Synthetics that kill Organics so Organics don't create Synthetics that kill Organics stuff

            They all had diarrhea one day from eating Taco Bell, and they accidentally left some speech-to-text software running, so their diarrhea noises became in-game dialogue.

            Drew Karpyshan left, for one. He was a great dude and he co-created the Mass Effect universe. He was the lead writer for Mass Effect 1, then just did some dialog for ME2, and finally didn't have a hand in ME3.

          Is this really where the fuckin story goes? I stopped playing ME3 about 7 hours in because I didn't give a fuck about anything that was happening in the game anymore. Which is pretty sad because I started playing it hot off of a playthrough of ME2 super stoked to play it.

            If you want to spoil it. Yes. You build the crucible. Then when you reach the Citadel with it you find out that there is an Alien AI running it and the Reapers and that the Reapers were created to stop Organic life from reaching a point that it created advanced synthetic life and stop the inevitable war from it that will result in the death of organic life. And despite how you played the game you are given 3 choices to Destroy the Reapers, to Control the Reapers, or to use space magic and somehow turn the galaxy in to some form of biological/robotic hybrid.

        If you read the Pastebin the only thing they add to the end is stuff directly relating to the Leviathan DLC. And doesn't really say much other than who the creators of the original Reapers were.

            Actually it does seem to change the origin of the Reapers in that the creators of the Reapers didn't do so to fulfill the Reapers grand purpose but were the first race that was harvested. Which points to the Reapers being exactly what they are trying to stop from happening.
