To many gamers, the Mass Effect Trilogy was more than just another series of games. I’m not sure how BioWare succeeded in getting thousands of gamers as emotionally invested in a game as they did, but I know it was certainly one of, if not the best trilogies of our generation. Saying goodbye to Shepard and the crew was somewhat abrupt; however with the final DLC coming to Mass Effect, we’ll be able to give them a proper sendoff.
A new multiplayer DC will release tomorrow, Mass Effect 3: Reckoning will be free to download on 26 February giving players access to new characters, weapons and upgrades. The single player DLC, Mass Effect 3: Citadel will be released on 5 March and will be the last single player pack. Citadel is meant to give fans one last sentimental journey with Commander Shepard and the squad, but won’t be free. I guess everything comes with a price, even those last treasured moments, saying goodbye to your precious Liara. Mass Effect 3: Citadel will be available for about R160 or 1200 MS Points.
“The team has poured heart and soul into Mass Effect 3: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3: Citadel. As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. “We have always been humbled and driven by the passion of our fans for the Mass Effect trilogy. We hope fans will enjoy spending more time with some of their favorite characters — we have certainly enjoyed spending time creating them. We’re excited to release this final sendoff for the trilogy and move forward into the future of the Mass Effect universe.”
