Mass Effect 2 Arrival DLC uncovered

The Playstation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 was patched today, accidentally revealing the existence of another DLC adventure for Mass Effect 2. The patch revealed the name of the DLC - The Arrival, along with three achievements including the ominous sounding "The Ultimate Sacrifice." The find was made by a poster on the Bioware forums, and has triggered speculation that the new DLC could cover the events between the end of Mass Effect 2 and the beginning of Mass Effect 3, when the Reapers are laying waste to planet Earth.

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker review

If you Kirked it up in Mass Effect and romanced the blue alien, you probably weren’t impressed with the curt, emotionless reunion with her in Mass Effect 2. If you investigate, you’ll find Liara is tangled up in unfinished business with your one- time ally the Shadow Broker, after betraying him to rescue you. This £7 DLC finally lets you chase up that subplot, and get either closure or continued sex from your old flame.

Mass Effect 3 will return to the Citadel with cut Mass Effect 2 missions

After the momentous events at the end of Mass Effect, it was surprising that the sequel didn't spend much time in the Citadel. Speaking to OXM, lead writer Mac Walters has said that the huge station that forms the galactic centre of government will form a bigger part of Mass Effect 3. "There was a Mass Effect 2 plot that was a kind of callback to the first Mass Effect that was going to be on the Citadel, and we cut it. But now it's made a resurrection in Mass Effect 3," says Walters. "That's the nice thing about trilogies, sometimes you get a second chance." Hopefully it won't be a sequel to the Keeper scanning side quest.

The existence of the Arrival was accidentally uncovered as part of a recent Playstation 3 update. There's been no official announcement from EA or Bioware confirming or denying the new DLC just yet.

Mass Effect 2 The Arrival DLC will have Shepard fighting alone

Commander Shepard will be flying solo for the final slice of Mass Effect 2 DLC. The Arrival will see you journey to the very edge of charted space to help out an operative with early intelligence on an imminent Reaper invasion, but none of your companions will tag along for the ride. It looks as though Bioware are planning a challenging end to the last piece of Mass Effect 2 DLC with plenty of combat and not much conversation.

BioWare "answering the call" of Black Ops 2 players with Mass Effect 2 discs

Yesterday we reported that around 1,000 buyers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had discovered their disc 2 contained not more military manshoot, but BioWare's space epic Mass Effect 2. Embarrassing for Activision, sure - supplying their customers with one of their rivals biggest franchises probably wasn't high on their key strategies - but it was always going to be EA's reaction that proved the most interesting.

Play Mass Effect 2 and Dead Space 2 in your browser right now, no special plugin needed

If you fancy having your mind somewhat blown, try playing the Mass Effect 2 demo in your browser. Unlike most graphically impressive browser games, this isn't a huge download running via a special plugin: all you need is Flash and Java, which you likely already do, and you'll be playing in a few seconds. The only catch is you need a good connection - about 10Mb/s - and the demo won't appear if you don't. The service is called Gaikai, and it's live in 12 countries right now. The focus is on letting you into the game with no fuss or sign-up process, so it's perfect for demos. At the end of the Mass Effect 2 or Dead Space 2 demos available now, you get a link to buy the full game. If the Mass Effect 2 demo link doesn't pop up when you visit the Gaikai site, try the Spore one - it has the same requirements but it'll tell you what's wrong if it doesn't work.

IndieGala bundle defies its own name - includes Mass Effect 2

Traditionally, the IndieGala bundle has focused on some of the lesser known indies, especially when compared to the more famous games that headline the Humble Indie Bundles. That's not quite the case this time around. Sure, you can debate the definition of what does and doesn't constitute an indie studio, but I think everyone would agree that Bioware are well outside of that label. Odd then, that Mass Effect 2 is a beat-the-average reward for the Gala's latest collection.

Origin delivers a broken Mass Effect 2 installer...in Hungarian [Updated]

On Friday night, I suddenly, desperately wanted to play Mass Effect 2. I’d procrastinated all the way up to the release of Mass Effect 3, and finally snapped out of whatever was holding me back. No problem: digital distribution makes the PC the best-suited platform to satiate sudden cravings. ME2 is on Steam, but since ME3 is exclusively on Origin, I figured I’d buy it there so the two games could snuggle up together in my library. That arbitrary decision was a huge mistake.

Mass Effect 3 review

Mass Effect was a space RPG about killing a flying robot god - a Reaper. Mass Effect 2 was about stopping one from being built. In Mass Effect 3, they've warped in from darkspace in their hundreds. And that's all I'll say about the plot. This review will be spoiler-free even for those of you who've avoided the trailers and the demo. In all three games, your time is split evenly between persuading people to help you and shooting people who won't. The original's strength was its main quest: a chase that felt both personally motivated and galactically important. Mass Effect 2's plot was muddled and brief, but livened up by an exotic cast of new characters with interesting side stories. Mass Effect 3 tries for the best of both worlds: an urgent and galaxy-critical plot that directly involves the entire crowd of oddball personalities the series has built up. And it works.
