The legendary role-playing game creators at Bioware stepped forth with several announcements in the last twenty-four hours that are sending waves throughout gaming forums across the web. In a blog post published earlier today, Bioware confirmed that more Mass Effect 3 downloadable content is on the way. There will continue to be additions to the multiplayer side of the game, as well as new single-player content, the next episode of which is simply called Omega. We put our thinking caps on and we’ve come to the conclusion that this episode will revolve around the planet Omega, which played a large role in Mass Effect 2. In Mass Effect 2, Omega is controlled by Aria, an all powerful overlord who rules over the planets rival gangs with an iron fist. In Mass Effect 3, Aria has lost Omega to Cerberus, and fled to the Citadel where she plots to retake what she views as hers. The first single-player episode to be released for Mass Effect 3, Leviathan, is available for download now. In case you’re in need of a refresher, Mass Effect 3 uses Kinect to enable voice commands which add an entirely new element to the battle to save the galaxy.
In addition to the announcement of Omega, Bioware noted that the Mass Effect team is also hard at work on creating a new Mass Effect title that will likely be something bold and new for the franchise, as Mass Effect 3 concludes the franchise’s first trilogy and the story of protagonist, Commander Sheaperd. While we don’t currently have any details on where the sci-fi franchise will take us next, we sure are hoping that Kinect will be involved once again. The blog post also confirmed that a new franchise is being worked on behind closed doors at Bioware, who also just announced Dragon Age 3: Inquisition yesterday afternoon. There’s no word on whether the new Dragon Age, or the new IP will utilize Kinect in any way, but we thought you might like to know.
Finally, the co-founders of Bioware, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk have announced that they have retired from both the studio and from gaming industry altogether. This string of announcements have likely been made to let fans know that new management is in place, and new projects are underway at Bioware.

The hotly anticipated Leviathan add-on for Bioware’s role-playing game Mass Effect 3 is now available in exchange for 800 MSP on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Leviathan represents the first single-player downloadable content for Mass Effect 3, outside of the Extended Cut, the free update released a few months back that expanded on the game’s highly controversial ending. In Leviathan, players once again assume the role of Commander Sheaperd and his team as they race across the galaxy to uncover a secret so large in scale, that it’s said to be powerful enough to destroy the mysterious and life extinguishing threat, known as The Reapers. Bioware has also promised to shed more light on the origin of The Reapers themselves through this downloadable expansion. Don’t sweat if you want to see more and you missed the launch trailer for the DLC that we posted a few days back. We’ve got you covered. You can add Leviathan to your Xbox 360 download queue by following this link.
If you’re a late bloomer on the Mass Effect bandwagon, Mass Effect 3 represents the epic conclusion to the story of series protagonist Commander Sheaperd, and his fight to save all life in the galaxy. An ancient race of machines known as The Reapers have emerged from dark space, intending to wipe the galaxy clean of all organic life. You’re choices along the way will ultimately determine the fate of all life. Representing one of the most successful and most talked about games of the year, Mass Effect 3 is still making waves throughout the gaming industry seven months after release. To find out what we thought of the game, be sure to check out our review.
August 28th, mark it on your calenders. It’s the date that the first single player DLC since From Ashes (that adds new content), releases for Mass Effect 3. Leviathan DLC contains a good variety of things to do but the main pull, aside from it being new content, is the inclusion of some insight into the origin of the Reapers.
It will come in at 800MSP and will hopefully deliver a good mix of story and gameplay.
There are some great new deals and releases coming out for the Kinect. To start off we have the Mass Effect 3: Firefight Pack for 160 points.

Bioware has formally announced Mass Effect 3: Leviathan, the first single-player downloadable content for their acclaimed role-playing game.

Bioware promises that the DLC will explain more about the origins of the Reapers themselves, as well as give players access to new corners of space, new parts of the Citadel and new weapons. Leviathan is expected to hit the Xbox Live Marketplace before the summer is over, launching at an 800 Microsoft Point price point.

Sporting a highly controversial ending to the the epic struggle between organic life and synthetics, Mass Effect 3 has been one of the most talked about games of 2012.
