    1. well i dont think so, they gonna add some content but will it be enough too fill up the plot holes since they wont change the endings at all? Time will tell...

  3. At least they're gonna do something about all the people complaining about the end.

  4. good thing I haven't bothered to play it yet, as if I have the time...

  5. Free is the way to be, not sure an added ending is needed though.
