Mass Effect DLC Next Month on Xbox

Computer and Video Games has word from BioWare that the recently revealed Omega single-player DLC pack for Mass Effect 3 is expected on Xbox 360 on November 27th for 1200 space bux (USD $15.00). There's no word on other platforms for the moment. They also have a video about the DLC, but this is marked private, so unless that gets fixed, it's not going to help much. BioWare says this is "double the size of the largest DLC we've done for Mass Effect 3," and word is it will involve battling with Cerberus general Petrovsky for control of Omega.

The rumored dlc right after launch sounded so much better than everything they've done. Continuing the story crashed on that planet, or picking up where you see someone take a breath.

That is why we need companies who make dlc after the game launches. This stuff looks like they decided to give up making more after launch and just shaved a few missions out of the game to sell later.

That WOULD be cool. It surprises me that they've done that kind of DLC for Dragon Age: Origins (Leliana's Song was really good) but never for the Mass Effect series.

It would be a good opportunity to change up the gameplay a bit too. Something sniper heavy, more stealthy.

"Now introducing the Archangel DLC. The universe is a mess in the aftermath of the Reaper War, the gangs are taking advantage of the chaos. Someone needs to step up. It's time for the soldier who put fear into the criminals of Omega to show why he earned the name Archangel"

F'ing Sold.

If it was some Garrus DLC taking place after the ending I might be interested. Cleaning up after "The End", dealing with a broken team, having that lonely beer on a beach with the empty seat next to him. Otherwise meh.

Why bother when you already know the ending? All your effort is generally useless.

Even if it's a great story, I don't want to reward Bioware for shitting all over Mass Effect.

Besides, I still have like 7 top-notch games to play through.

They're still milking this turd?

Meanwhile I just keep adding more and more developers to my do not buy list... Bioware, Blizzard, Activision and DICE are among the top tier.

I agree, the ending of ME3 was a letdown for me. I enjoyed everything up to that, but the way they set it up left no real reason to replay it like the others did. I'm surprised they are still releasing stuff for this. Does it still have a large player base? I guess they had a bunch of extra assets laying around that weren't included.

15 bucks? Yeah...

Game, season passes, DLC, booster packs, etc. The gaming industry is getting to be a "fun" place for my wallet.

Leviathan was an absolute rip-off. Probably one of the worst DLCs they've ever released, so if they expect me to fork over 15 bucks for yet another SP DLC, heh. It just makes me chuckle.

Hell I traded ME3 right the hell back in long before they even added the extended cut. It's a shame really, the game itself wasn't terrible but between how they handled the ending and how after 5 years of preaching throughout the series how player choice mattered, it was pretty much one big marketing line of bullshit.

I think what surprises me more is how quickly Bioware fell from being a developer that I would auto prebuy from to one that I actually might jump for joy if EA shutters them at this point.

Unless Dragon Age 3 goes in a far more DA:Orgins direction rather than DA2, and with Laidlaw still in charge of the series along with how much of an asshat David Gaider tends to act like most of the time on their boards, I'm not going to hold my breath.
