Thursday afternoon, EA held their annual summer showcase, to highlight upcoming games, dlc, etc..
The big Mass Effect news is the first single player DLC for Mass Effect 3! Leviathan!
BioWare’s blurb about Leviathan says:
Something lurks in the dark corners of space, something powerful enough to kill a Reaper. Shepard must discover the most closely guarded secret in the galaxy before the Reapers silence it forever. Discover more about the origins of the Reapers as you race across the galaxy to find the Leviathan. Unravel the dark history of the Reaper Race before it is too late. Coming later this summer there is no war, only the harvest.
As part of Leviathan, we’ll apparently be underwater, get a couple of new weapons, and learn some more of the Reaper story. I’m glad we’re finally getting a single player DLC, after having received multiple DLCs for Multi-player. I’m disappointed that the multi-player DLCs have been free…and the single player one is going to cost $10. I think if you’re offering free DLC for multi-player, the single player DLC should be free as well.
August 7th, will bring us a weapons pack DLC for the single player game as well ($2) which features “two powerful weapons, and five bonus weapons”…
EA also showed off some of ME3 on the WiiU:
To me.. this looks clunky, but maybe it plays better than it looks.
