It is no secret that Mass Effect 3 will be the final chapter in Shephard’s story, however if you thought that would pretty much mean that downloadable-content for the game would be multiplayer-centric, think again. Recently GameInformer spoke to BioWare’s executive producer, Casey Hudson, and he let slip a few thing which we can expect from Mass Effect 3 DLC.
Firstly don’t get too excited as Hudson was being very careful with his words, but he did admit that BioWare take feedback from the community very seriously, this inspires them to add content which many people have wished for – so if there is something which you would love to see brought to the game via add-ons you should get vocal on the BioWare forums etc.
We can confirm that there will be both multiplayer and single-player downloadable content, we have added an extract from the conversation which revealed this below:
There’s some multiplayer stuff, but we’re also planning some DLC on the single-player side, because it did really good in Mass Effect 2. The adventure-type DLC will happen in the time frame of Mass Effect 3, within your Mass Effect 3 storyline. It’s similar to how with Mass Effect 2, if you had a saved game from anywhere inside the game, you could go on to the DLC.
As you can see it seems as if BioWare has a lot planned in regards to Mass Effect 3 DLC, we don’t quite know what to expect in regards to single-player DLC, but we expect side-quests which tie into the game’s storyline. Also something pretty interesting is that when you start Mass Effect 3 you will be able to choose between three game modes: action, roleplaying, and story – apparently you can’t lose in story mode as it is designed for people who are playing the game for the story experience, by the looks of things you will be able to change this setting when your playing the game. If you are playing the game in action mode it will enable automatic-dialogue so that more of your time will be spent battling it out with the enemy rather than becoming involved with the storyline.
Do you like the sound of three different game modes? What sort of DLC would you like to see? Let us know in the comments section below.
