One of the best-selling games of the year, Mass Effect 3, released another piece of downloadable content yesterday – Mass Effect 3: Omega.
This new piece of single player DLC expands upon the events of Mass Effect 3 by allowing players to return to the seedy and unsavoury levels of Omega to fight alongside fan favourite Aria T’Loak.
This new chapter in Commander Shepard’s journey will also add powerful weapons and introduce never-before-seen characters to the franchise.
Cerberus agent Oleg Petrovsky and his squadron have seized the infamous black market trade post known as Omega. As its self-proclaimed rightful leader, the legendary biotic Aria T’Loak plots her revenge to reclaim her domain by teaming up with Commander Shepard and another mysterious ally.
They must put aside their differences and fight side-by-side to defeat the Illusive Man’s reign over the space station and free the enslaved people of Omega. In addition to the new story content, Mass Effect 3: Omega also includes two bonus weapons, the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle and Chakram Launcher, previously only available through pre-order promotions.
Mass Effect 3: Omega is now available to download on Xbox LIVE and Origin and on PlayStation Network on November 27 and in Europe on November 28.
The Mass Effect franchise is one of the most highly decorated series in the history of games, having earned over 300 awards and 200 perfect scores from critics around the world. Mass Effect 3 launched in March to universal critical acclaim, receiving over 90 perfect scores and according to Metacritic.com, is currently the highest rated game of the year for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
