The end of the Mass Effect 3 cycle is drawing nigh. Nearly a full year since the release of Shepard's final story, Bioware has announced two upcoming pieces of DLC that will draw a close to this Mass Effect arc. Due out Tuesday, February 26 is the new multiplayer pack Reckoning, and the week after brings the final single-player mission - Citadel.
The Bioware team posted to their blog on Thursday:
When a sinister conspiracy targets Commander Shepard, you and your team must uncover the truth, through battles and intrigue that range from the glamour of the Citadel's Wards to the top-secret Council Archives. Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad – as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, including Urdnot Wrex!
When the adventure is over, reconnect with your favorite characters from the Mass Effect Trilogy, try your luck at the Citadel's Silver Coast Casino, blow off steam in the Armax Combat Arena, or explore and furnish Shepard's own living quarters on the Citadel. With unique content and cinematics featuring your friends and romance interests in the Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one final chance to see the characters you have known for years and rekindle romances.
More Multiplayer packs have been announced as well, as the team also described the outfits available in the Reckoning pack:
Prepare for the Reckoning! Newfound allies join the multiplayer war for survival in Mass Effect 3: Reckoning. The Geth Juggernaut, Cabal Vanguard, Talon Mercenary, Alliance Infiltration Unit, and more take up arms to stop the Reaper threat. Smash your enemies with the Biotic Hammer as you lay waste to the battlefield as the Krogan Warlord.
Reckoning will be available for free this Wednesday, 2/27, while Citadel will release on 3/5 for $14.99 (or 1200 BW/MS Points).
