Mass Effect Downloadable Content Pack on the Way
BioWare announced earlier this week that on Mon. Mar. 10th at 2:00 am PST, they will be releasing the first Downloadable Content Pack for Mass Effect entitled Bring Down the Sky.
Yup, that's right, the official link takes you to the regular Gallery on the main site, and you can find two screenshots if you scroll up, but otherwise there's no info. On many professional game sites, like TeamXbox, for example, you _can_ find out the full details.
The big news is the official unveiling and inclusion of the Batarians, a race featured prominently in Mass Effect: Revelations, but who pulled out of Citadel Space for Mass Effect; they really don't like humans much.
The other big appeal is a new Achievement worth 50 Gamer Points.
Bring Down the Sky will be available via the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 400 Microsoft Points, which equals $6.20.
For me, I don't know. I still have a problem paying for "premium" content that should be free, but at least its not a bunch of overpriced Multiplayer Maps...
