Producer Hints at More Mass Effect 3 DLC; ‘Leviathan’ Rumored

Warning: Possible spoilers of upcoming, unreleased content.

BioWare isn’t finished with downloadable content coming to Mass Effect 3, and not just on the multiplayer side of the fence, it seems.

Producer Mike Gamble has tweeted a few bits concerning the game now that the Extended Cut ending DLC has dropped, suggesting that players should keep their eyes open for more DLC in the future.

“Would now be a good time to talk about how we’re doing more DLC in the future?” Gamble wrote in one update. In another, he added, “That was a trick question. We’ll save the future DLC for future chats. Don’t worry though…there’s much more.”

So more content is on the way, and apparently, some details about it might have been discovered in the code of the Extended Cut.

According to a story from Eurogamer, code from the Extended Cut discovered by members of the BioWare Social Network and posted to Pastebin suggests there’s an upcoming DLC mission set before the ending sequence called “Leviathan,” which concerns a renegade Reaper that can be recruited to the player’s side in the war. There’s also fresh dialog in the DLC, the code suggests.

According to what was found in dialog lines, the story has players rescuing a scientist named Ann Brynson from a Reaper-controlled mining facility, which is facilitated by a defected Reaper called Leviathan. Supposedly, Leviathan “killed his own kind” and also reveals more about the Reapers’ creation — including talking about the Catalyst or “Star Child” and its origins.

Supposedly, Brynson’s fate is determined by your choices and Leviathan can join the war. If that’s the case, it would likely be as a war asset.

So what do you guys think? Now that the Extended Cut DLC is out, will you be paying for more Mass Effect 3?

No way in hell am I giving them money


On June 27, 2012 at 11:59 am

Yeah, not so much. I don’t care if it cures cancer and shoots flying rainbow ponies, I am not buying anything with Casey Hudson’s name on it again. Ever.

The only dlc I would get on mass effect 3 would be any dlc that would happen after the main story. Anything else probably not. How about dlc that you play as Ashley or Garrus trying to find a way to save Sheperd. If they did something like that they would be swimming in credits aka microsoft points.


On June 27, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Yeah, not so much. I don’t care if the DLC cures cancer and shoots flaming rainbow ponies, I’m not buying anything with Casey Hudson’s name on it again. Ever.


On June 27, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Nope, nein, never. The EC was too little, too late, and I’m sticking with my plan of never giving Bioware a cent


On June 27, 2012 at 1:35 pm

That’s a tough one for me. My anger over the ME3 has abated and now it’s just disappointment. The extended cut repaired some cosmetic damage, but the ending(s) is/are just fundamentally flawed. I don’t know that I am interested in anything more about the Reaper war. I just can’t invest as much in a story when I know how it ends for the characters involved. Their stories have been told, it’s time to move forward.


On June 27, 2012 at 1:50 pm

LOL, Mass Effect 3, ended like matrix, like LOST, like any other “Deus ex machina” writer, holly piece of crap covered with diamonds. They refuse to write something smart, something classic, something at last with no plot holes. And i refuse to buy anything in this line, simple as that. Better i keeping wasting my time tryng to read all of almost 400 Books writed by Isaac Asimov, the best writer born, never disapointed me, all clever books, the man of the wikipedia ideia, the man of the future.


On June 27, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Unless it’s a complete remake of ME3 with a written apology for the botched version they inflicted on me in March, and available on Steam without any ratty origin strings attached, I’m simply not interested.


On June 27, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Does it matter if we have a Reaper armada at our disposal, knowing that will happen in the end? Seriously, these guys from Bioware are missing the point…

Anyway, I won’t purchase any other Bioware product after this…


On June 27, 2012 at 2:21 pm

No way in hell am I giving them any money


On June 27, 2012 at 3:59 pm

If it was free…. I still wouldn’t bother. Waste of my time


On June 27, 2012 at 5:49 pm

<why bother ? the ending will not change; it will still be the same…or they will add a little frame that say HEY guess what, your friend reaper DIED! If they can't diverse ending like they advertise in the first place; I highly doubt they would do any change at all to the ending for a minor change like that. So, yeah, i'll keep the money, they don't deserve it.


On June 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm

In onw word? Yes with pleasure!


On June 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm

hell no, I am never buying anything from Bioware ever again, at least not in the near future without it comming out first and reading player reviews about it.


On June 28, 2012 at 1:04 am

NO! Mass effect is dead…is so real! :/


On June 28, 2012 at 5:18 am

While this might add to more gameplay (I hope it isn’t a fedex mission) in the end it is going to be moot.


On June 28, 2012 at 9:28 am

Everyone here are just a bunch of cying babies. EC was aweseome and Bioware still make good games. Sure i will pay for every good DLC because i will not let the retards stop the eventual release of a Mass Effect 4.


On June 28, 2012 at 10:13 am

Obvious troll is obvious. Take your act back to IGN, no one here is buying it.


On June 28, 2012 at 10:42 am


Why are you defending them?

BioWare isn’t your friend, they are not a family member and they are certainly not loyal to you in any way.

They are company that is prideful and spiteful of their fan base and any criticism of their product.

Defending EA or BioWare will not get you into their good graces, it will not allow you to join their team or get free stuff from them.

They DO NOT care about you.


On June 28, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Might have to scour the wikia a little harder because I might be way off but, wasn’t the leviathan Sovereign? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR GAMES AND BOOK] As described in game on the planet Jartar, Batarians discovered, the “Leviathan of Dis” From it’s description and secretive disappearance I assumed this was the object of study in the book: Revelation, that turned out to be Sovereign.

I’m not going to boycott this in protest, and since it’s set BEFORE the end I’ll check this out.
However I have no interest in any DLC that takes place after the ending because it’ll just feel wrong. The EC may have saved the narrative but the plot is well and truely “effed” up now.


On June 28, 2012 at 4:32 pm

So this DLC is going to have a “renegade reaper that destroy’s other reapers.” Keep f***ing up your game with cool idea’s that don’t coincide with the endings at all.


On June 29, 2012 at 11:01 am


The same on my side i do not care about you two and everyone here are a bunch of hypocrites because some you will buy this DLC when it come out if the reviews are good. I’m not a troll i’m honest.

And like we say in good french-canadian: aller tous chier.


On June 29, 2012 at 11:18 am


And dont compare me to this bunch of retards on IGN. I was with the ones who fight against the original endings and i participed in the retake Mass Effect 3 movement. Do not call me like if i was an ignorant fool. Now the EC is released and i loved it. For me this now the way i accept how Mass Effect 3 ends. And i apologize Bioware for their mistake and i am now a big fan of them again. They give us a 800 MSpoints or 10$ size DLC for free and i’m good with that. I’m not a big bunch whiners like all of you who wanted remake of Mass Effect 3.

Mass Effect 3 ended like sh!t but now it have more suitable yet flawed endings but still good. Get over it and try to continu your lives. 60 bucks of 40+ hour great action RPG is not as bad as you call it. Mass Effect 3 still possess a good gameplay, a good story and sure i will replay again the entire saga and still buy the new action figures who will come.

Like a said in french-canadian before: Vachier

And for gamefronts, thanks for by a supporter of the gamers, i will always be on your side.

a DLC to recruit a reaper before the final fight….
pay more money to recruit another war asset which ends just being another couple of numbers on a terminal in Normandy , without any effect on the ending…


On July 2, 2012 at 1:50 am

I’m more in the camp of EC is an improvement, but it should have been at least like that from the initial release and not something that they were forced to add later.

As for purchasing more Bioware games, for me they’re definitely no longer in the “Insta-Preorder” list. Now they’re now on the “Wait for peer reviews before buying” list.


On July 2, 2012 at 7:35 am

EA have ruined Bioware’s reputation it seems by rushing the game out


On July 4, 2012 at 11:04 pm


Four things:

First you cared enough about what we said to respond, so your statement is moot.

Second If some people on here purchase the DLC and other do not then the can not all be hypocritical; that statement is false.

Third just because you are Quebecois does not mean you can not spell and write correctly in English: We Canadian’s are bilingual.

Fourth: Va te faire foutre!


On July 5, 2012 at 7:04 am

I gave Bioware a time to redeem themselves with the Extended cut, for me they failed to deliver. Since Dragon Age 2 I have given Bioware enough chances, my money now goes elsewhere.


On July 10, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Nope. Mass Effect is dead to me. At best I will check out YouTube vids for cut scenes, but I won’t spend another dime on a series that gave me a heaping pile of monkey dung for an ending.


On July 10, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Eh. Maybe. Depends on how well it’s done I guess. If I hear it’s got the same level of quality as say Lair of the Shadow Broker, then sure I might pick it up. It’s certainly not going to be an instant purchase though, and if it isn’t a strong enough dlc, I’m not going to bother except maybe youtubing it.

The premise just seems bizzare though to start with, and there’s a good chance, to me at least, that it’ll just turn out to be ridiculous. A year ago, I wouldn’t have been too worried about it. Right now, we’ll see I guess.
