New Mass Effect Achievements appear

Arena/Fight Club DLC imminent.

Three new Achievements have appeared for Mass Effect, which suggests the long-promised DLC is imminent.

The Xbox website (spotted by Joystiq) attributes 50 Gamerpoints to each Achievement, taking the game's total to 1200 (Bring Down the Sky added 50).

The Achievements are: "Undisputed - Complete Ahern's survival mission"; "New Sheriff in Town - Take first place in any combat scenario on Pinnacle Station"; and "Best of the Best - Take first place in 12 combat scenarios on Pinnacle Station".

The latter two certainly support the "fight club" or "arena" idea that BioWare said was in development earlier in the year.

BioWare had been poised to announce new Mass Effect DLC recently, but blew mysteriously cold again after an apology by community manager Chris Priestly for jumping the gun.

Keep an eye on the official Mass Effect forum for a full announcement. It can't be long now.
