It’s hard to believe that Mass Effect 3 has ended the controversy for ten years. For those lucky enough to miss it, the crash course version is after dozens of hours in a huge RPG trilogy. Commander Shepard’s epic ending boils down to a relatively simple ternary choice, almost completely Remove from the player’s journey to that point.
It’s hard to overstate the importance of this matter, not only for Mass Effect fans but also for the entire gaming culture. The counterattack was so fierce that BioWare actually released an Extended Cut DLC, which aims to provide “more closedness and more background and clarity”, and a “more personalized for each player” ending. This is definitely an improvement, but the result is still pretty bad.
This is where the Mass Effect 3 Happy Ending module comes into play-if you don’t want to be spoiled, I suggest you don’t read it here because they are coming. This module has made many changes to the finale of “Mass Effect 3” by classicizing specific endings, cutting out some content to make the narrative work, keeping geth and EDI alive, and of course ensuring that Shepard survives and Reunite with their crew-including their lovers.
The original mode is Still available, But unfortunately it is not compatible with Mass Effect Legendary Edition.For those who like happy endings, the good news is a reworked version of the finale module called Audemus, yes-you can now download Nexus module.
Audemus’s Happy Ending Mod is described as the “spiritual successor” of the original, which is actually closer to JohnP’s replacement MEHEM The mod is a re-production of the original “Happy Ending”, which includes Extended Cut content. But the end result is basically the same: it eliminates the catalyst, preserves the fortress and mass effect relay network, and of course keeps Commander Shepard—and their lover, if applicable—alive.
It is also designed to contain compatible versions of the legendary Castle Ending Module, Which turns the excellent Citadel DLC-“a sweet and funny farewell hug for long-term fans of the series”-into the end of Mass Effect 3. The makers of Audemus’ Happy Ending Mod are currently working on this and hope to launch it later this year.
Personally, I don’t think that the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy is a crime against humanity that some players think. It may be a bit disappointing, but it is not enough for me to deny countless hours of entertainment in one of the most wonderful science fiction worlds I have ever seen. In other words, I do prefer a happy ending to a sad ending, and I think if I have time to play Mass Effect Legends, I might do it with this mod installed.
