"Bring Down the Sky" With The First Mass Effect DLC March 10th
BioWare has announced on their forums that the first piece of downloadable content for the virtual orgasmic rape simulator ... err, I mean the awesome interstellar action-RPG, Mass Effect, will be available March 10th for the low low price of 400 MS points ($5).
"Bringing Down the Sky" will include an entirely new planet to explore as well as the talked about but never seen Batarians. A rouge group of extremist Batarians have hijacked an asteroid space station and are attempting to fly it into the colony world Terra Nova, and only you and your group of roughnecks can plant the nuclear bomb in time to blow the asteroid and ... oh wait, I'm confused again.
The DLC is estimated to contain 90 minutes worth of intense action oriented role-playing. And for all you Achievement whores their will be an added 50 achievement points for your unlocking pleasure. This is also only the first it what is presumed to be many pieces of additional content for Mass Effect.
While I loved the game, I honestly haven't touched it after my second play through (one good, one bad) and unlike Knights of the Old Republic, I'm just no that drawn in to playing the game any more (I must have played Knights of the Old Republic 5 or 6 times). As long as it isn't just another barren Mako oriented world with one little outpost (and at 90 minutes long, it doesn't sound like it), I'll definitely pay $5 for 90 minutes of gameplay.
