BioWare announced today that the final piece of DLC for Mass Effect 2, “Arrival,” will be available for download on PCs, Xbox 360 systems and the PlayStation 3 on March 29, over a year since the game’s launch. The cost? 560 Microsoft or BioWare Points, or if you’re into a monetary system that actually makes sense – $6.99 on PSN.
In Mass Effect: Arrival, Commander Shepard is sent to the edge of the galaxy to rescue an undercover operative who may have evidence of an imminent Reaper invasion that has been looming since the very beginning of the series. Returning and playing a prominent role in Mass Effect: Arrival is fan favorite Admiral Hackett, who is voiced by legendary science-fiction actor Lance Henriksen (Alien, Terminator).
“All year, we have been extremely honored and humbled by the reception we have received for Mass Effect 2 from players around the world, including our post release DLC”, said Casey Hudson, who is the Executive Producer for the Mass Effect series. “Mass Effect: Arrival is an exciting extension to Mass Effect 2 and will show players just how close the Reapers are to returning and completing their deadly harvest.”
Mass Effect 2 recently won the video game BAFTA for “Best Game.”
