Mass Effect: Introducing The Infamous Batarians


Bioware has revealed The Batarian Race from the new DLC for Mass Effect.  These four eyed bipeds are native to the Terminus Systems. Members of this isolationist race are seen as a bunch of thugs and pirates by the rest of the galaxy.

Little is known of the average citizen as the society is tightly controlled by its oppressive government. Contact with other races is forbidden and news is completely controlled by the government.

Humans came into conflict with Batarians when they began to colonize the Skyllian Verge which had already been heavily settled by Batarians. The conflict between the two races escalated giving rise to the Skyllian Blitz of 2176.

Get the complete details on this new adversarial race at the Mass Effect Community. For more information on Bringing Down the Sky check out Gaming Today’s introduction to the new DLC for Mass Effect.

That’s not at all what I pictured them to look like while reading the Mass Effect novel. Not even close.
