It looks like BioWare has a traitor amongst its ranks. A super secretive Reddit tipster, who’s already accurately leaked every Mass Effect 3 DLC pack, has returned with another glimpse at the future. The poster has revealed that the space opera’s next expansion pack will add Earth-based levels to the divisive multiplayer component.

New locations will include Rio, Vancouver and, of course, London. The pack will also bundle a handful of original weapons, and six new human character classes.

The sneak also reiterates that Mass Effect 3’s first story-based DLC – the oft-discussed Extended Cut which aims to correct the complaints pointed at the game’s conclusion – will be released later this summer on PS3. There’s no word on how the pack will be structured yet, but judging from the Tweets of various voice actors, BioWare's got the full cast involved.

Outside of the ending I really liked the game.

I'm working on my 5th play through of ME2 as we speak.

@get2sammyb - LOL It's my favorite game on PS3 as of today. I SOOO wish you could get the first ME on PS3. I will probably never get a chance to play it since I have no plans to get a 360 and my PC isn't made for gaming.

@Splat Totally agree. I've played through ME2 a bunch of times, I think it's one of the best games this generation. ME3 on the other hand, I find it hard to play through more than once. Although the co-op is great and really addictive, so the more free DLC they bring to it, the better!

Ya, it's not really that ME3 is a bad game, it's just that ME2 is so GREAT. There are some small tweaks in ME3 that I loved like running faster,improved melee and weapon Mods, but as a whole it can't touch ME2.



ShogunRok said:

@Splat Yeah exactly. There are a lot of things ME3 does much better, like the combat, the graphics, the presentation as a whole... But ME2 still feels like the more 'complete' game; talking single player only of course.

I'm hoping that once all of the single player DLC for ME3 has been released, it feels as complete as ME2 does, because Shadow Broker, Overlord and Arrival really add to ME2's already great set of missions.
