Mass Effect 3 ‘Omega’ DLC Dated and Priced

The next batch of single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3, which will take place on the space station Omega, has a release date: Nov. 27.

We saw some details about the Omega DLC leaked not too long ago, and it sounds as though it was pretty accurate. According to a post on the BioWare Blog, the story follows Aria T’Loak, the Pirate Queen, as she makes a bid to take the station back from Cerberus forces. The post says that Aria will be seeking out Commander Shepard’s help in the campaign.

The DLC pack comes to Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC via Origin on Nov. 27 in North America, Nov. 28 in Europe. It’ll run you $14.99, or 1200 MS Points.

Yeah, your chance at the female that got away. Sex to the rescue. Sick, getting sicker by the minute. Bioware is as dead as Shepard at the end. Asking for money is just pretending that it is not.

For $15 this better be some amazing DLC. Consider me skeptical.

This reminds me of Yak Shaving day…he left me saving scum, just what I always wanted (Joy! He got my letter!).

Go to Hell.
This should have been in the game to begin with.

Uh, not a chance Bioware.

Also, why the hell would Shepard help a crime lord regain their throne? Regardless that he has a Galaxy to save from the Reapers and is on the clock, she is a criminal and he is Alliance military!

Bioware for the love of all that is good fire your lead writers, they obviously do not have a brain between hem.

“Also, why the hell would Shepard help a crime lord regain their throne? Regardless that he has a Galaxy to save from the Reapers and is on the clock, she is a criminal and he is Alliance military!”

It made sense in the context of the game to get the mercenaries united under her and fighting against the Reapers, as Aria proposed. Additionally, Omega was overthrown by Cerberus, which would be of interest to Shepard. What was odd was that she said she wanted the mercenaries to retake Omega and then they could help Shepard out with Earth. But then there was never a follow-up Omega mission, which was odd. And now, here it is for extra money!

It’s because of rubes like wesker that BioWare thinks they can package and sell anything and get by on reputation. Bravo, Mr. Wesker

I feel sorry for Wesker1984, he has no idea how much he and others like him are crippling the videogames industry with their blind, unwavering support of companies who don’t deserve it.

For gods sake, stop being so damn bitter, either that or Gamefront, please stop baiting your readership into this god damn trolling every time you post a Bioware related article, its been six months, let it go for Christs sake.

For the why would anyone help Aria whinger above…. Read the comics regarding the fall of Omega, whole Collectors being on the other side of the Omega relay in ME2, and that tiny, small bit of the story about STOPPING CERBERUS.

Thanks Blarty, was going to say the same. I bloody don’t care if Bioware bites the dust and if they deserve it or not, I loved the ME universe, and any chance to get back to it is good.
I am not saying that I wouldn’t give a swift kick in the butt of the guy who came up with that ending, at least until someone has the balls to change it. I’m saying that they really did an awesome job of creating a universe I care about, and not many games have achieved that. If I was at Bioware, I’d appreciate some support to show that people care about the story and that it’s worth getting back to writing awesome stories in the ME universe, rather than continuous trolls and mud-slinging comments.
Guys at Bioware, don’t give up please. get your inspiration from fans if needed, but if you go on writing great stories (with great endings this time), you’ll get my money !

Hurray. DLC for a section of the game that was hinted back even before release. If you’re going to sell DLC, at least try to make it less obvious you cut it out of the original game. Bioware can eat it, I’m done with Mass Effect and them.

@ blarty
while I do respect your opinionon the matter I do believe people should continue complaining about the game even 6 months after the fact because that is the only way to show ea and bioware gamers will not just give up and forget it. If people stop voicing their displeasure it will reinforce the ea stance on games that gamers don’t matter

Hey, wait a second, Blarty. While we definitely pay a great deal of attention to BioWare and Mass Effect, how is this extremely benign post about the Omega DLC us baiting trolls? Should we not cover Mass Effect anymore? I didn’t imply any negativity toward Omega or Mass Effect 3.
