Mass Effect 3 DLC: Citadel and Reckoning

Bioware announced today the final two DLCs for Mass Effect 3. The Citadel DLC is for the single player campaign and Reckoning is the multiplayer DLC.

Citadel

PLAY WITH GODDAMN URDNOT WREX. That’s all you need to know.

Just kidding, here’s the plot:

“When a sinister conspiracy targets Commander Shepard, you and your team must uncover the truth, through battles and intrigue that range from the glamor 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!”

The interesting feature is that after the actual quest is over, you can then go and hang out in various areas of the Citadel, including a casino, combat arena, and Shepard’s condo. Basically, Bioware claims that Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one final chance to see the characters you have known for years and to rekindle romances.

If this is done right, it will be the perfect send off. No more trying to answer questions about what in the world that god baby was…just a last chance to hang out with the characters we love, to get some closure.

Reckoning

FEMALE TURIANS FTW. That’s all you need to know!

Just kidding, here’s the deets:

New characters:

  • The Geth Juggernaut
  • Female Turian Raptor
  • Talon Mercenary
  • Alliance Infiltration Unit
  • Krogan Warlord – comes with a Biotic Hammer…is he KrogThor?

New weapons:

  • Geth Spitfire Assault Rifle
  • Venom Shotgun
  • Lancer Assault Rifle

There will also be new equipment and weapon mods, such as the Geth Scanner and Assault Rifle Omni-blade.
