I want to be surprised by the game and have therefore not read anything dealing with its story, so I am most interested in finding out if this is a prequel, sequel, or alternate reality story.
I hope they won't sell parts of the story as dlcs like EA usually does.
Not sure if you meant this as "I want to know", so I'll put it in secret text:It's sort of a sequel/alternate reality. Humanity (and several of the other races) send Ark ships to Andromeda during ME2 and ME3, as a safeguard against the Reapers wiping them out. They reach Andromeda 600 years later.
I'm sure there will be story DLC. To be fair to Bioware, they usually do a pretty good job with those. It's been rare when I didn't feel I got my money's worth out of their DLC, and some of the ones they've done (Shadow Broker, The Citadel) have been about the finest examples of DLC done well.
There will also be MP DLC which should all be free.
