BioWare Says Farewell With Mass Effect 3: Citadel and Reckoning

| 21 Feb 2013 16:45

The final piece of Mass Effect 3 single-player DLC will see the return of some old friends and old flames.

The story of Commander Shepard is finally coming to a close with a big, two-part DLC blowout. First up is Mass Effect 3: Citadel, a single-player add-on that has Commander Shepard targeted by a "sinister conspiracy," leading him into new Citadel locations ranging from the Wards to the top-secret Council Archives. The final Mass Effect 3 single-player DLC will bring about the return of squadmates from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 and while EA hasn't revealed the full lineup yet, Urdnot Wrex is definitely on the list.

It's a "final, sentimental journey" with all-new cinematics and even the opportunity to "rekindle romances" with old paramours. And once the trouble is over, the Commander and Co. will be able to relax for awhile at the Silver Coast Casino, hit up the Armax Combat Arena and furnish Shepard's own personal living quarters on the station.

"As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet," Mass Effect Executive Producer Casey Hudson said. "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."

On the multiplayer side of the coin, Mass Effect 3: Reckoning will add the Geth Spitfire assault rifle, Venom shotgun, Lancer assault rifle and Biotic Hammer, as well as new classes including the Geth Juggernaut, Female Turian Raptor, Talon Mercenary and Alliance Infiltration Unit. Two new weapon mods are also being tossed into the mix, the Geth Scanner and the Assault Rifle Omni-Blade.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel is scheduled to launch on March 5 at a cost of 1200 Microsoft points or $14.99. Mass Effect 3: Reckoning will hit on February 26, and will be free. To find out more about both, head over to masseffect.com.
