Leviathan Single-Player DLC Announced for Mass Effect 3

/ Aug 6th, 2012 1 Comment

Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC

Bioware announced a new single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3 during the EA Summer Showcase. Along with the Leviathan DLC, a new weapons pack that brings fan-favorites like the Reegar Carbine to single-player will be releasing. While data-miners and Leviathan’s voice actor already clued the Mass Effect community into this new content, the announcement finally gives official confirmation. There was no set release date announced at the event beyond “this summer,” but considering that Fall is less than two months away, fans should not have to wait long.

This long-awaited single-player DLC promises about 3-4 hours of new gameplay, two new weapons, and answers to many questions about the origins of the reapers. Shepard and company go in search of an extraordinarily old being, named Leviathan, said to have killed reapers. The actual nature of this creature remains unclear for the time being.

As far as gameplay, Shepard will operate an underwater mech and naturally fight large numbers of reaper ground troops. Judging by the name of the creature, the underwater portions, the search for lost knowledge, and the general design of the surroundings, the DLC pays even more homage to Lovecraftian literature than it has in the past.

Many gamers are wondering, “Does this change the ending?” The information is conflicting. Bioware said Leviathan does not, but information uncovered from data-mining done by the forum community seems to indicate at least some small dialogue changes. As this data-mining obviously does not come from the Leviathan DLC itself, only the release will reveal the answer.

The Leviathan DLC will go for $10 or 800 Microsoft Points on whichever platform you use to play Mass Effect 3. While this does put it among the more pricier content packs—on the same price point as Lair of the Shadow Broker—it may end up proving worth it. The weapons pack will go for $2 or 160 Microsoft Points and will be released tomorrow. As Bioware’s first paid DLC since Mass Effect 3’s release and the on-disc From Ashes content, the industry will finally learn what affects the ending controversy had on the community’s willingness to pay for new DLC.
