Mass Effect 3 petition raises $40k in one day

/ 5 years ago

A petition to change the endings to Mass Effect 3 has raised $40K in just one day.

The petition, dubbed Retake Mass Effect, is a Child’s Play donation drive which hopes to bring positive attention to the situation. “We would like to dispel the perception that we are angry or entitled,” the group said. “We simply wish to express our hope that there could be a different direction for a series we have all grown to love.” All the money donated goes directly to Child’s Play, which provides video games for the patients at Children’s Hospitals worldwide.

The petition asks BioWare to make a number of changes to Mass Effect 3’s endings, including:

  • A more complete explanation of the story events
  • An explanation of the outcome of the decisions made, especially with regard to the planets, races, and companions detailed throughout the series
  • A heroic ending which provides a better sense of accomplishment

The donation period ends April 11.

  • I played the game for about an hour and now the icon is sitting on my desktop probably feeling a little lonely. Haven't clicked the "3" in a while; don't plan to today, or tomorrow.
