Mass Effect 3 Citadel Questions Answered by BioWare Devs
The latest DLC for Mass Effect 3, titled Citadel, is releasing next week. Citadel has been subject to many rumors over the past few weeks, many of which had conflicting details about what it plans to contain and how it ties into the existing framework of Mass Effect 3.
According to the developers, you’ll be able to access the Citadel DLC at any time after stopping the Cerberus attack on the station and before beginning your attack on Cronos Station, which marks the endgame.
Characters from the previous Mass Effect titles will be present in various contexts throughout the expansion, and the DLC will give players a chance to adventure with Urdnot Wrex and rekindle old flames. BioWare states that you’ll only be able to meet up with Jack, for example, after completing the Grissom Academy mission and talking to her at the bar in Purgatory.
Most importantly, nothing you do with Citadel will affect the end-game, so players are asked to simply consider it as a natural expansion to the existing game with content that unlocks as they progress towards the end. In short, it’s not a retcon.
