Today marks a notable date for Mass Effect fans. Exactly a year ago, several million fans around the world waited for it to hit midnight in their area to enter their favorite gaming store. They had pre-ordered the Mass Effect 3 game, and now it was about to come to pass. What is special about today, a year later? Today is the release of final Mass Effect 3 story DLC that brings old friends back to the front lines of the story. It’s Bioware’s last mark on Shepard and their crew.
This DLC features the Citadel. Anderson wants Shepard at their best and focused on the mission at hand. To assist with this, Shepard is given a suite onboard the Citadel and encouraged to find some time to relax with the crew. Of course, it’s Shepard. There’s never any time to relax. Once Shepard finds some time to relax, all hell breaks loose and someone’s after Shepard – and not the usual rabble of the galaxy that players have grown to know. A new enemy shows themselves as hostile to Shepard.
Other than the new fights that can happen in the Citadel, new connections can be made from old friends that have been absent from the game as a whole. Faces return that most players know to take a bigger part of the story than they previously had been. This DLC is going to be players who have been with the series from the beginning. For those that have been the first fans and have come full-circle with Shepard and the Normandy crew.
The DLC will cost $14.99. For PC and PS3 gamers, the DLC will download as a whole. Although, Bioware saying that due to the size of this DLC pack, Xbox 360 gamers will have to make two downloads. It still costs the same, only it’s split in two different packs. Be sure to catch that before you head off to say goodbye to Shepard.
It’s truly here, isn’t it? Mass Effect 3 gamers a year go by this were having the same thought. That Shepard’s tale was over as soon as they grabbed a hold of this game. Now, it’s truly coming to a close. Shepard is saying goodbye, and the entire crew is here for it.
Makes all Mass Effect fans wonder: What’s next for the Mass Effect Franchise?
