BioWare: Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC ‘Coming in the Fall’

Hot off the announcement that BioWare’s co-founders, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, are leaving the company after nearly 20 years, BioWare has announced new stuff, including that new single-player DLC is on the way for Mass Effect 3.

According to a post from BioWare General Manager Aaron Flynn, the Mass Effect teams have lots more content in the works for the game. He mentions multiplayer content, which isn’t surprising, and single-player content — specifically, he says, “We are releasing more multiplayer content and we have more single-player stories coming throughout the next six months, including Omega which is coming in the Fall.”

There’s been some speculation that the Mass Effect 3 story would eventually include some reference to Omega, the sort of “dark Citadel” that was a major location in Mass Effect 2. According to the lore of Mass Effect 3, the station fell to Reaper Cerberus control after a hard-fought battle with the mercenaries and criminals living there. Some, such as Aria T’Loak, escaped. Many did not.

Now it seems that this will, in fact, be another DLC pack for Mass Effect 3, and we can expect it relatively soon. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

Speaking of Mass Effect 3 DLC — anything in particular you’d like to see BioWare explore? Let us know in the comments.

Bioware also hinted another full game in the franchise ”Flynn also hinted at a new fictional universe in development at BioWare”.

I just hope this ”new universe” will not be a reboot of some sort and being a sequel trilogy. I dont care if they choose a canon ending in ME3 to continue the franchise.

Yup, Ross Lincoln is currently whipping up another story about that little detail, but we thought we’d break this one out into a separate one.

It fell to Ceberbus. Reapers stopped doing stuff in ME3 and were replaced by three headed puppies. There is a Dark Horse comic out detailing how Cerberus won Omega. I started reading it back before the ending of Mass 3 destroyed the part of my soul named Sheppard and I stopped playing ME3. I skipped every DLC since that crap ending (including the free stuff, although I did YouTube Bioware flipping off the fans in the extended crap ending). I will take a big pass on more meaningless crap now as well. No point in doing anything when it all comes down to A, B, C or FU after all.

Wait!? How can I retake Omega? I told ReaperBoy to go his mother and I nuked the universe. Unless this is not postbellum?

Ollie Dee: Now, how can he come up dead when he’s alive?
Stannie Dum: Let’s drop a rock on him. That’ll make him dead when he’s alive.
Ollie Dee: Now you’re talkin’ sense!

”before the ending of Mass 3 destroyed the part of my soul named Shepard”

Saying this kind of comments make you look like a no life. Sorry for my saying but your comment is dump and feel immature. Seriously i felt depressed before the Extended cuts came out but i never felt a part of my soul was destroyed since the character ”Shepard” is not part of me or you. It absurd.

@timfads: “Reapers stopped doing stuff in ME3 and were replaced by three headed puppies.” Very nice comment, made me laugh.

“Saying this kind of comments make you look like a no life.”

You’re one to talk – every single article on ME3, you respond with some sort of fatuous insult towards users with any opinion more critical than the wide-eyed fanboy rhetoric that you like to publish.

“Sorry for my saying but your comment is dump and feel immature.”

Calling a comment ‘dump’ isn’t exactly a sophisticated response.

“Seriously i felt depressed before the Extended cuts came out but i never felt a part of my soul was destroyed since the character ”Shepard” is not part of me or you. It absurd.”

It’s not absurd at all – it’s called immersion. I feel sorry for you if you can only take things at face value and have no interest in engaging with the characters or the plots in stories. That’s their whole reason for existing in a series like this, especially when it’s lasted for five years and has the amount of scope as Mass Effect does.

Also, and this is only a minor point, but why is your English so bad in this comment? Usually, the only thing I can say positive about anything you post is that it’s written more or less correctly, but this one was an absolute mess. “This kind of comments,” “Sorry for my saying,” “Your comment feel immature,” “i,” “Extended cuts,” “It absurd?” What happened? Were you drunk when you wrote it? That’s a genuine question, I just don’t understand how you made so many of these errors in just four sentences when you usually don’t have this problem. Granted, I’d probably have to get drunk before attempting to defend BioWare these days, but it’s still something of an anomaly.

@Stan: Wesker is not a native speaker, that’s where the spelling mistakes come from, he stated as much in other comments. As for your response to his arguments, I totally agree with you! However, history has shown that trying to engage in meaningful discussion with Wesker about anything Mass Effect or Bioware has very rarely borne fruit.

Figured that there would be an Omega DLC, and I just don’t understand what the point would be.

“Oh boy! Help Aria retake Omega!” Really, what would it mean in-game? (since story line wise this would HAVE to take place prior to the ending) So she gets Omega back…..means nothing to Shepard and crew, or the game universe in general other than you got to help someone get their little fiefdom back.

I played through ME3 once, got the ending, watched the fiasco that was Bioware/EA’s customer service response….and haven’t been able to fire up any of the ME games since. I haven’t bought any of the new DLC, or even the free EC (thank you you tube). I just don’t see a point for it. Now if Bioware releases DLC that will actually CHANGE the ending possibilities? Then heck yeah, I’ll go back and buy everything they got for ME3 (except multiplayer…no interest in an arena style horde mode).

As to a 4th title in the ME universe….*meh* no interest in playing a storyline that would take place prior to ME3, especially if there is anything to do with the reapers/cerberus in the game. Because, well…we know what happens to the universe at the end of ME3. And if it happens after the end of ME3, it would have to happen many many years after the end of ME3 for me to be even a little interested.

And yes, I miss Jacey Shepard. She was fun to immerse myself in while the fantasy lasted.

@ Stan Dash
It clear you doesn’t know me, i HAVE interest in engaging with the characters or the plots in stories. The only thing i love more in a game than gameplay is the story and characters development. Mass Effect is my second favorite game franchise of all time and i’m overprotective of it and i feel insulted when peoples say stupid things like that ”Mass Effect is dead to me” because i will not let those peoples take away the possibility of a sequel trilogy and i will insult them.

Also i have never saw Shepard as ME, for me Shepard is the main hero/heroine of the Mass Effect trilogy nothing less or nothing more like Captain America in a Avengers story. I hated the original endings when i first finished ME3 because they doesn’t give me all the answers i wanted but with the extended cuts i changed and accepted the Catalyst as the main force behind the Reapers and how Shepard’s journey ended with all those space magic. For me the Mass Effect trilogy was finally finished properly.

I have nothing against the peoples who still hate the endings of the game but i will never accept the ones who say Mass Effect 3 is crap because of the endings or Mass Effect is dead to me or Bioware/EA can’t do good games anymore because of what they have done with DA2 and ME3, that simple. Sorry for my english. Peace my friend.

@ Daretoask
Lol i like you buddy because you realised i will never change even if i am an , i understand all of you but i learned to accept the ME3 we got. And if you want to know i do not care about Bioware or it employees, i care for the good games they can make.

The Retake Mass Effect movement is still open and i still with them if you want to know even if i truly love Mass Effect 3 with the Extended cuts i still demand a better endings for this game!
