Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC details revealed at Summer Showcase
Bioware releases details on Mass Effect 3's next DLC
Bioware has released details on the "Leviathan" DLC for Mass Effect 3.
A post from BioWare's blog describes the DLC as one where "players will be thrust into the darkest corners of space where they will hunt a mysterious being rumored to be powerful enough to destroy a Reaper. As they race against time, they will begin to unravel the secret of the Leviathan." It also mentions new characters, weapons, and new areas of the Citadel to explore.
No release date was mentioned, but the DLC is priced at 800 Microsoft points, which is $10.
There is also a weapons pack DLC coming August 7th for 160 Microsoft points, the Firefight pack, which is said to contain two new weapons, along with five bonus weapons. I'm not exactly sure what "bonus weapons" means, but whatever.
There was a time when this would have been a day one buy for me, but after what happened with ME3's ending I'm going to wait and see first. To be honest, even with the Extended Cut, which made the ending of Mass Effect 3 actually bearable, I'm still not sure I can bring myself to play through any of the games again, because in the end, I was still left feeling my choices didn't matter, despite five years of promises. I really want to love Mass Effect like I used to, but this might be BioWare’s last chance.
I doubt it, Mike Gamble has confirmed on Twitter it won't change the endings after IGN said it would. He did promise us more exposition on the Reapers, though. In other words, we're getting more of what we didn't need and was a big part of the problem with the craptastic ending in the first place.

Then again, they also said the same thing about the Extended Cut, but that very clearly changed certain things, so perhaps this will too. Will it change things after all? Even if it does, will it be enough? I suppose only time will tell. I hate what they turned the Reapers into, but I could forgive that if our choices actually mattered in the end. Even if this DLC does change the ending so that our choices matter, I'm not sure I want to pay an extra $10 for the ending I should have had in the first place, the ending we were promised.
I'm interested and hopeful, Bioware did lot of good dlc for ME2.
If anything comes out of this it better be Bioware learning from their mistakes.
