'Discover The Origins Of The Reapers'
BioWare has confirmed two new expansions for Mass Effect 3, the most exciting being the Leviathan singleplayer story DLC. Which would have been a nice surprise, had we not known about it for weeks. A premium singleplayer weapons pack is also on the way - full details and screenshots below.
It seems that incriminating files found within Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut DLC were right on the money: Leviathan will indeed tell the story of Shepard's search for an enigmatic (and much-foreshadowed) entity. Enterprising players have already found plenty of spoillerific plot details - check it out here if you dare.
"Taking place during the events of Mass Effect 3, players will be thrust into the darkest corners of space where they will hunt a mysterious being rumored to be powerful enough to destroy a Reaper," reads the BioWare blog. "As they race against time, they will begin to unravel the secret of the Leviathan. Explore uncharted systems and new areas on the Citadel, interact with brand new characters, unlock the AT-12 Raider shotgun and M-55 Argus Assault Rifle and discover more about the mysterious history of the Reapers."
"Available on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Cost is $10 or 800 Microsoft points."
By the looks of things, we can expect underwater mech suits, new Citadel areas and all sorts. Have some screenshots.
BioWare also announced the Firefight Pack, a new Single Player Weapon Pack dated for download August 7th. Will $2/160 Microsoft points be worth getting "two powerful new weapons and five bonus weapons?"
