EA Responds To Mass Effect 3 ‘From Ashes’ DLC Being Included On Disc

There was already some controversy over the “From Ashes” DLC that was released day one for Mass Effect 3, and now EA has answered to some that spurred about the DLC itself. Players were highly upset that the developer decided to push out a special piece of downloadable content on day one as the game released. Aside from that issue, some fans had alleged that the content is accessible on the Mass Effect 3 disc, which is the issue that the publisher has now spoken out about.

From Ashes is a piece of content that was free to all players who picked up the N7 Collector’s Edition of Mass Effect 3, and for all others it is available for $10. A video has jumped up over the weekend that claims From Ashes was included on the Mass Effect 3 disc, and was accessible through a single line of the game’s code being altered. EA is now saying that this, in fact, is not the case.

“From Ashes is a 600 MB+ download with all new content, including the mission on Eden Prime, new dialogue options and conversation with Javik, new cinematics, the Prothean weapon, and new appearances for all squad members. All of the above content was completed while the main game was in certification and are not available on disc,” said EA to Game Informer. They continue to say that certain elements were imposed on the disc to integrate Javik into the game, though this piece of downloadable content is download-only. If you want to check out the previously-mentioned video, take a look below. I urge that you do, as it shows exactly how to unlock Javik from within the game on the PC without the DLC installed. EA says that some elements needed to be incorporated on the disc, though the full content is download-only, though this is proven incorrect. What say you now?
