BioWare Blasts Final Mass Effect 3 DLC Details into Orbit

The final frontier

Believe it or not, we’re close to the one year anniversary of Mass Effect 3. It’s been a long rollercoaster ride, but all things must come to pass – and with that, BioWare has revealed the final DLC packs for the space shooter's single player and multiplayer offerings.

The multiplayer DLC, named Reckoning, hits next week (26th February in North America and 27th February in Europe), and will, as always, be free. It adds a host of new classes, such as the huge Geth Juggernaut and a mighty, biotic hammer wielding Krogan Warlord. It’ll also augment a wealth of new weapons, including the Lancer Assault Rifle – a weapon last seen in the first Mass Effect.

The aptly named Citadel add-on follows the week after (5th March in North America and 6th March in Europe), and focuses on the relationship between Shepard and the squadmates you’ve amassed over the trilogy. You’ll be journeying to the Citadel to tackle a sinister conspiracy against our favourite commander – and when it’s over, you’ll have some brand new hub areas to enjoy, like a casino and combat arena.

Are you planning on picking these packs up? Let us know in the comments section below.

Getting for sure. More Mass Effect is always a good thing. I'm not one to spend the cash to get all the DLC for most games but can't help myself when it comes to ME.

I really feel like ME3 gets a bad rap because of the ending but it is still a really good game.

Mass Effect might just be my favorite trilogy ever.

@Splat It also doesnt hurt when the DLC is free too! im definitly Picking this up when it comes out.

@Alpha - The Citadel add-on isn't free since it's for Single-player. According to IGN it will cost $15. The fact that all the multiplayer DLC is free is pretty sweet.

Out of the Single-player DLC all ready available Omega was my favorite. It's pretty long takes almost 2 GB's to download.

From Ashes was kinda short but you get a new squad member and a new outfit for each squad member. James and Ashley's new outfit are both pretty sweet.

Leviathan was pretty solid as well.

None of them are on the same level as the Shadow Broker DLC from ME2 but all are pretty good.

I think the ME3 DLC has been of a good quality so far. Leviathan was a quality piece of content with good story telling. Omega was an action packed few hours of fun. Citadel could be the best of the bunch if the mission itself is on par.

The main reason I liked Omega so much was Aria.

"There is one rule on Omega."

You can fill in the rest.
