Mass Effect 3's next DLC has "high potential for tears"


Game Info

GAME NAME: Mass Effect 3

DEVELOPER(S): BioWare

PUBLISHER(S): EA

PLATFORM(S): Wii U

GENRE(S): RPG

RELEASE DATE(S): 30 November

BioWare has warned fans on their blog that Mass Effect 3's next DLC will have a "high potential for tears," though they seem more likely to be on BioWare's part rather than gamers'.

Designer Jos Henriks posted that the next ME3 add-on will be "all hands on deck," with "pretty much every Mass Effect 3 DLC writer here in Edmonton... involved."

Everyone seems to be getting in on this one; Seth Green, the voice actor of Normandy's pilot Joker, is returning for this add-on, as is Raphael Sbarge, the voice of Kaidan Alenko. Mass Effect's chief composer Sam Hulick also got in on the hype, tweeting, "tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears."

Resourceful hacking of previous DLC leads many to believe that this latest, untitled DLC will be a single-player add-on taking place primarily on the Citadel. Release and pricing details have not been confirmed, nor has its potential availability (or not, in the case of "Omega") on Wii U.

    I am in my zen zone. There is nothing that ME3 can do to me that can upset me anymore. I have broken through the barriers.

    Honestly, after the whingefest regarding the not that bad ending, I think fans have absolutely no right to opine of Bioware’s work anymore. We’re lucky we’re even getting DLC considering how poorly we treat them.
