Mass Effect 3’s Citadel DLC Revealed

Coming March 5th, during the anniversary week of the game’s launch, is Citadel, Mass Effect 3’s final DLC.

The expansion promises to take gamers “on an emotional ride with their favourite characters” as they “explore and discover new locations across the vast, deep-space station” in “one final send-off for Commander Shepard”.

Mass Effect 3 Citadel will cost at $14.99 on PS3 and PC while Xbox 360 owners will be set back 1200 MS Points. A Wii U version has not been announced.

BioWare will also release the free Reckoning multiplayer DLC on February 26 which will include new maps, characters kits, weapons and upgrades for the title’s co-operative component.

Casey Hudson, the series’ executive producer, said: “The team has poured heart and soul into Mass Effect 3: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3: Citadel. As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet.

“We have always been humbled and driven by the passion of our fans for the Mass Effect trilogy. We hope fans will enjoy spending more time with some of their favourite characters — we have certainly enjoyed spending time creating them. We’re excited to release this final send-off for the trilogy and move forward into the future of the Mass Effect universe.”

Mass Effect franchise produce Mike Gamble revealed that Citadel will measure 4GB, double the size of the Extended Cut and Omega DLCs, and come in two packs on Xbox 360 due to file size constraints:

The Citadel DLC will hopefully finally put to rest fan anger over the game’s controversial ending as well as allowing players more time with Mass Effect 2 characters who many feel had too limited a role in the trilogy’s conclusion. You can find out more here.
