Today we will head to the great white north with a developer diary for the upcoming "Omega" DLC for Mass Effect 3.

Producer Fabrice Condominas explains that the new DLC will run gamers roughly four hours of extra gameplay, new weapons and new enemies.



The "Omega" DLC will be available on November 27th for 1200 MSP.

I am not sure what it is about Mass Effect 3, i just have not been drawn in to buying the DLC like i was with Mass Effect 2, i was really excited to get them and really excited to play them. I can't understand what has changed that i feel this way.

I probably will pick them up at some point though.

These are 2 ideas i had that could be making us feel this way..

1. When we completed ME2 the story was still yet to continue so we were still really excited and looking forward to ME3 so with this excitement we used it to play all the DLC on ME2 but now the main story is over the DLC doesnt feel as appealing anymore.

2. Franchises can only keep me excited for so long depending on if there are fresh changes between games, usually the excitement for me will last about 3 titles so maybe now that the main story is done and we have played the 3 games the excitement has gone.

I am not saying this is for sure the answers, it was just something i thought about.

I still don't understand why this wasn't in the game from the start. I feel like that was a really tacky move.

I wish ME3 hadn't put a sour taste in my mouth. I'd still be playing and I'd still be excited for the DLC, but I just stopped caring months ago. I'll put the game in again someday, but this series has really dropped off of my radar for now.

Looks way better than the Leviathan DLC at least. New squad members are always a welcome change.

Love the DLC but hate that i have spent close to 100 bucks on this game total since it came out. Especially since the downloads size has been so small making me think all of this was on the disc from the start. Wonder if this will be the last DLC for this game...

People will do anything to further fuel their hate of something, even largely insignificant things like video games. The result of privileged people with nothing better to think about. laugh

I think those could be valid reasons for lack of interest in the ME3 DLC. After completing ME2, it was fun to play the DLC that extended the story and maybe hinted at what we could expect in ME3.

I think for me it's probably game fatigue, as you mentioned. After three games, I'm ok taking a break from Mass Effect for awhile. Plus it was in the media so much this year (all the pre-launch crap shoved down our throats and then the ending controversy) that I got pretty tired of even hearing about the franchise. I'm sure I'll get all the single-player DLC eventually, but I can stand to wait for it to be on sale. And maybe by then I'll be more interested in playing it.

I'm buying this because it'll give me a reason to finish me3. I keep going into MP instead of finishing it because everytime I want to finish it I can't because I hear of another dlc coming so I have to wait for that to come out and not spoil the story as I know it's the end of the game. Unless... They made a dlc after the ending of the game.

Instant purchase, as Mass Effect is my favorite video game series of all time, but I'll probably save it for when I replay the entire game again. It would feel weird to me doing this right before launching the attack on Cerberus.

I'll be getting this at 1 point, but 4hrs at 1200MSP might be pushing it. After trading in my copy of ME3 for Darksiders II I'll need to rent a copy somewhere when this goes on sale but only because of the achievements.

Knowing how ME dlc is, I'd hazard the "4hours of gameplay" translating to about 90mins in real time... I've never gotten anywhere near the promised gaming time bioware give for their dlc and I doubt it will change now :-/

I haven't touched any of the ME3 dlc, just can't bring myself to. Maybe when it all goes on sale at some point down the line I will pick it up and be able to finish my renegade play through.

same here! i wanna play it at some point but not at this prize point when it comes out...i got Leviathan but have not touched it yet. strange for a ME fan. i still liked ME 3 despite the ending but it's not the best game in this awesome trilogy imo...
