The Next Mass Effect 2 DLC is Called ‘Arrival’

Things have been quiet in the Mass Effect universe since the Cerberus Network announced there would be at least one more DLC pack for Mass Effect 2 some time before ME3 hits in November. Now, thanks to an update to the PS3 version of the game (spotted by a poster on the BioWare forum), we have some details for the DLC, and those details tells us we already had some other info about the DLC without realizing it.

The aforementioned update adds a couple trophies and some game data which reveals the name of the DLC. That name is — wait for it — Arrival. [SQQQQQQQQQUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL] Holy f–king s–t. I wonder whose arrival that could possibly be referring to.

But wait, there’s more. Here’s what the new trophies are (no spoilers, really, so don’t worry):

The Ultimate Sacrifice
Complete the Arrival DLC

Last Stand
Survive all five waves in the battle for Object Rho

Covert Action
Rescuee Dr. Amanda Kenson without attracting hostile attention.

The mention of Dr. Amanda Kenson is fun, because the last Cerberus Network update, which came last month, was about her:

Historians and astronomers alike are abuzz tonight over a new paper published by Dr. Amanda Kenson of the University of Arcturus. Her team claims that by testing the dust trapped in the gravity wells around a mass relay, and comparing its composition to that of dust clouds in the same system, scientists can create a timeline of when the relay passed through the dust. Her conclusion? ‘Only a small fraction of the mass effect relays date back 50,000 years,’ she writes, ‘The majority are far older, indicating they were created by a species predating even the Protheans.’ Dr. Aurana T’Meles of the University of Serrice met the information with skepticism: ‘While Dr. Kenson’s methods appear sound, the asari tried a similar procedure centuries ago and discounted it. What civilization could have spanned the galaxy for not thousands, but millions of years? If this were the case, we should have found mountains of evidence of their passing. Where is this species now?’

And, with that, I’m going to have a drink, because OH MY GOD.
