EA: Mass Effect 3 'From Ashes' DLC Not On Disc

EA has responded to claims that Mass Effect 3's 'From Ashes' DLC, which provides a new character and mission, is included on the game's disc. 

From Ashes is provided free for fans who purchase the Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition, or available for $10 to everyone else. Previously, the content leaked to Xbox Live and caused controversy among fans unhappy with EA for releasing day one DLC.  watch the video here

Over the weekend, a video began making the rounds claiming From Ashes was included with Mass Effect 3 and that a single line of code could be altered to unlock the content. EA now says this 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 conversations with Javik, new cinematics, the Prothean weapon, and new appearances for all squad members," EA told Game Informer. "All of the above content was completed while the main game was in certification and are not available on the disc." 

"As stated previously, in order to seamlessly integrate Javik into the core campaign, certain framework elements and character models needed to be put on disc," the statement continues. "We did something similar with Zaeed and Kasumi in Mass Effect 2."
