[UPDATED with a Citadel Trailer after the break] – EA and Bioware announced today that Mass Effect fans will get to go on one more adventure with Commander Shepard when the Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC releases on March 5, 2013. This will be the final sendoff for the Commander, and the last chance for Mass Effect fans to take their Shep and squad mates out for another mission. The Citadel DLC will cost $14.99, or 1200 MS Points.
To sweeten the Mass Effect 3 DLC pot Bioware is also releasing a free to download multiplayer pack called Mass Effect 3: Reckoning. This DLC will give gamers new characters, weapons, and upgrades to use while they hunt down the hoards of enemy AI in ME3’s fun-to-play multiplayer mode.
You can check out the official synopsis of both of these new ME3 DLC packs after the break. I’ve also included some screenshots for each pack to look over. You’ve been thinking Bioware is awesome…
