Despite a YouTube video purporting to show that the Day One DLC for Mass Effect 3 was "already on the Disc," EA is pushing back hard on the story today, saying that the whole idea is preposterous because of how big the DLC is.
"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," read a statement from EA issued to Game Informer.
"All of the above content was completed while the main game was in certification and are not available on the disc," the statement continued. "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. We did something similar with Zaeed and Kasumi in Mass Effect 2."
