Mass Effect 3 DLC Plans

The BioWare Social Network reveals plans for new DLC for Mass Effect 3 called Omega, saying they will provide more details over the coming weeks on this single-player content for the action/RPG sequel (thanks GameInformer). Here's word:

Yes indeed. Aaryn Flynn did confirm that Omega will be the next Single Player DLC. We'll have more DLC info in the coming weeks. Aaryn also confirmed we are making a new IP (not ME related obviously) and a new Mass Effect game.

It is FAR too early to talk about what this game is or what it will be about. It was only really mentioned because we know that some people will assume that with Ray & Greg leaving BioWare we'll be closing and not making more games. This is, of course, not true. We have Dragon Age 3 Inquisition in the works, more single and multiplay DLC in teh works for ME3, a new game coming in teh Mass Effect franchise and a new IP. Lots of good stuff still to come and when we can fill you in with details, we will. Stay tuned.

Bioware has traditionally done pretty good singleplayer DLC but the ending for ME3 really just kinda put a damper on the franchise for me. I haven't bought any DLC for ME3 and have no plans to in the future, I think I'll just wait and see how the next ME game is.

Unfortunately, Leviathan is a giant piece of shit. It's 3 missions, each of which is at most ten minutes long, and the whole thing is only padded out by stupid "run back and forth" sections designed solely for that purpose.

The much bally-hood underwater section lasts LITERALLY two minutes. You walk down a path, fall down, turn right, walk forward, fall down, turn left and that's it. Then you meet with Leviathan, who agrees to help you after about 3 minutes of conversation, even though they have stubbornly clung to their current method of hiding for BILLIONS of years.

And what do you get for all of this? Well, a few upgrades that they ported straight over from MP, a 400 rating war asset for Leviathan (Which surprised me. I had said it'd be 75.) annddd... oh, that's it. And it changes one line in the ending.

All this for just ten bucks, people!

It's possible that Leviathan got short-thrift because they spent so much time on the Extended Cut, and that Omega will be back to the Overlord/Lair of the Shadowbroker quality I've come to expect. But I'll need some really objective views to convince me of that.

Leviathan was a fucking waste of ten dollars.
