By Jonathan Barnes, 7 years ago
On the heels of the slowly-released screenshots that have shown glimpses at Mass Effect 2 final DLC, "Arrival", Bioware has FINALLY revealed the release date. Gamers can jump in to Shepard's newest mission on March 29, 2011.

The press release goes on to share a few more details about the oft-speculated content:

In Mass Effect: Arrival, Commander Shepard is sent to the edge of the galaxy to rescue an undercover operative who may have evidence of an imminent Reaper invasion that has been looming since the very beginning of the series. Returning and playing a prominent role in Mass Effect: Arrival is fan favorite Admiral Hackett, who is voiced by legendary science-fiction actor Lance Henriksen (Alien, Terminator).
You read that right... Bishop is BACK!

Executive Producer, Casey Hudson further states:

All year, we have been extremely honored and humbled by the reception we have received for Mass Effect 2 from players around the world, including our post release DLC. Mass Effect: Arrival is an exciting extension to Mass Effect 2 and will show players just how close the Reapers are to returning and completing their deadly harvest.
The press release goes on to confirm that "Arrival" will be the final DLC for Mass Effect 2.

Once again, "Arrival" will be released on March 29th, 2011, will include three new achievements and will cost 560 MSP.
