Final Mass Effect 2 DLC on 3/29

No High Scores

Remember when BioWare said that DLC for Mass Effect 2 would set the stage for Mass Effect 3? Turns out they were right! The Arrival, the final piece of the Mass Effect 2 DLC puzzle drops on March 29th and has Commander Shepard heading out to the edge of the galaxy to find an undercover agent that may have evidence of a Reaper invasion. You know, the invasion we already know about because they showed it to us at the end of Mass Effect 2. Hrm.

Aaaaaaany way, the final pack features the return of Lance Henrikson, which is always a good thing. We could all use a little Lance Henrikson in our lives. The pack will cost you 560 Microsoft space bucks, 560 BioWare Ferelden bucks or $6.99 in normal, Earth currency.

    $6.99? Really?

    That’s the cost of some sweet indie games or even AAA titles when they go on Steam sale. I guess I’ll wait ’til this is on sale or included in a Complete ME2 Edition.

    If it was 2.99 or 3.99? I wouldn’t think twice about buying it.

    I’m with you man. I’ve bought a few bits of DLC (the smaller ones) but decided to wait for the big package that would inevitably come. Hopefully they won’t expect me to buy another copy of the game to go with it =/

    The happy side effect is that the game is getting a good rest and I won’t get bored of it half way through like last time I tried to replay it.

    It probably costs more to produce than your average indie game (ie it’s a chunk of art/voice/etc). More to the point though, their DLC market is probably characterised by heavily invested fans who place a high value on extending a favourite game. You can charge a premium to that sort of market – witness our friend the $25 sparkle horse for WoW.

    And hell, I paid $7 for a smoothie yesterday. It was a damn good smoothie, but I expect to get a lot more enjoyment out of Mass Effect DLC.

    I spend more than that on lunch most days. If it is enjoyable, lasts longer than 30 minutes and doesn’t give me food poisoning, I’d say it’s a win.
