The Mass Effect trilogy as we know it is over, and BioWare intends to send our hero off with a fitting celebration. The just-announced ‘Citadel’ DLC will see Shepard fighting alongside not only his or her squad, but also all the cast you know and love from the first two games (err, except the ones that you killed). The DLC is due on March 5.
“When a sinister conspiracy targets Commander Shepard, you and your team must uncover the truth, through battles and intrigue that range from the glamour of the Citadel’s Wards to the top-secret Council Archives. Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad – as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2,” writes the official blog.
“When the adventure is over, reconnect with your favorite characters from the Mass Effect Trilogy, try your luck at the Citadel’s Silver Coast Casino, blow off steam in the Armax Combat Arena, or explore and furnish Shepard’s own living quarters on the Citadel. With unique content and cinematics featuring your friends and romance interests in the Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one final chance to see the characters you have known for years and rekindle romances.”
Eurogamer notes that the DLC will be 4GB in size, meaning that XBox 360 players will have to download it in two separate chunks. Given the amount of voice talent returning for this one final ride, it’s no wonder the file size is ballooning out past normal.
Meanwhile, free ‘Reckoning’ DLC will be available on February 26 (next Tuesday), bringing with it new units such as the Geth Juggernaut, Cabal Vanguard, Talon Mercenary, Alliance Infiltration Unit, and something called a ‘Krogan Warlord’ with a ‘Biotic Hammer’. I’m very okay with this.
