New Mass Effect 2 DLC Details Leaked

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
Were you among the (many) gamers who were upset when Mass Effect 2 went multiplatform? Well, from that dark day, there comes a silver lining. Some intrepid PS3 users have uncovered what looks to be BioWare's next DLC for TA's first ever Game Of The Year award winner.

The PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 recently received an update patch that reveals three new trophies that have been added for a possible DLC titled "Arrival". The names assigned to the trophies were: "The Ultimate Sacrifice", "Last Stand", and "Covert Action". The description for "Covert Action" may shine a little light towards the story of the new DLC as it tasks Commander Shepard to, "Rescue Dr. Amanda Kenson without attracting hostile attention."

Sharp-eyed gamers may recognize Dr. Kenson from a Cerberus Daily News update. For those who might have missed it, here is the blurb about her:

Historians and astronomers alike are abuzz tonight over a new paper published by Dr. Amanda Kenson of the University of Arcturus. Her team claims that by testing the dust trapped in the gravity wells around a mass relay, and comparing its composition to that of dust clouds in the same system, scientists can create a timeline of when the relay passed through the dust. Her conclusion? “Only a small fraction of the mass effect relays date back 50,000 years,” she writes, “The majority are far older, indicating they were created by a species predating even the Protheans.” Dr. Aurana T’Meles of the University of Serrice met the information with skepticism: “While Dr. Kenson’s methods appear sound, the asari tried a similar procedure centuries ago and discounted it. What civilization could have spanned the galaxy for not thousands, but millions of years? If this were the case, we should have found mountains of evidence of their passing. Where is this species now?”
As of this writing, BioWare has yet to comment on the speculation, but their message board is certainly lighting up.
