Microsoft has revealed that more Mass Effect content will be available to download on 10th March.
Dubbed Bring Down the Sky, it will cost 400 Microsoft Points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.80) and add a new world to explore - totalling around 90 minutes of fresh action.
This mysterious planet, or asteroid station, is home to a Batarian extremist group. They have hijacked it and plan to crash it into a nearby colony killing millions. Unpredictably you will have to stop them. Or possibly aid them. Who knows?
Batarians have yet to be seen in-game, but are talked about in the prequel novel Mass Effect: Revelation. They are similar to humans in build, but have no lips, slits for noses, and a second set of eyes underneath the first. Look how ugly they are, not to be species-ist.
Apparently they can mate with humans too, so we can put in a good word if you like.
Bring Down the Sky will be the first in a series of fresh downloadable content for the game, and also brings with it a new Achievement worth 50 Gamerpoints.
Mass Effect was released on 23rd November and won critics' hearts with its epic storyline and dramatic science-fiction setting, although most still argue over the merits of its combat system.
