With Mass Effect 2 literally just around the corner, I figure now is the best time to talk about it since the next article will be our Mass Effect 2 Review.
It was recently announced that Bioware would be releasing two Mass Effect 2 DLC sets alongside or soon after release of the actual game. It seems Bioware is trying its hand at some sort of new distribution platform that they’re calling ‘The Cerberus Network’. Access codes to The Cerberus Network (An in-game source of games and DLC) will come with all new copies of the game. Buying Mass Effect 2 used will mean that you’ll need to purchase an ‘exclusive’ Cerberus Network activision code.
The first DLC pack is being released along with the game on January 26th and includes include new items, missions, and characters. Zaeed, a soldier of fortune will join Commander Shepard in one of the new missions.
A second DLC pack is being released “Soon after launch” and features the Hammerhead, a new hover tank along with new missions and unique items, including Cerberus Assault Armor and the M-22 Eviscerator Shotgun.
