Bioware is slated to release the next big DLC release for Mass Effect 3 tomorrow on Tuesday, November 27th. The DLC will task Shepard with taking back Omega from Cerberus occupation. Along the way, expect new party members to join the fight including Aria T’ Loak, and for the first time ever a female Turian. We all know what Aria can do but lets hope that the new Turian character is the female equivalent of one of the Mass Effect series most badass characters, Garrus.
The biggest question for Mass Effect fans and newcomers alike is whether or not the largest DLC pack in the history of the franchise is enough to get you back in the fight against the reapers? Questions still abound regarding the DLC including whether or not the two new companions can be played after the DLC is completed? Also, does the Omega DLC have any effect on the ending?
I myself am a huge fan of the Mass Effect series; I am also one of the few people (at least that’s how it seems) that didn’t have a problem with the ending. That being said, this DLC doesn’t have me particularly excited considering that it is yet another mid-game DLC that doesn’t lead to any new revelations regarding the ending, Shepard’s story, or the future of your squad members. Either way, Bioware is promising that this will be the biggest and most expansive DLC any Mass Effect title has ever seen. Let’s hope that the quality stands up to Bioware’s high standards.
