Most, if not all of us know about what the original ending to Mass Effect 3 would have been thanks to a leak released sometime in 2011: an unstable fluctuation of Dark Energy was basically a century away from destroying the universe, and the Reapers were revealed to be THE ULTIMATE renegade faction that somehow had the power to combat this crisis by making new reapers out of sentient species.
