Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker trailer teases Liara-heavy action

Still can't get enough Mass Effect 2? There's a rather meaty addition coming this Tuesday, which looks to explain why Liara was all pissy and preoccupied when you bumped into her on Illium. We've actually had a go at this DLC already, we just can't say too much about it until later this week. Until then, here's the trailer, which arrives just in time to remind you to buy it on Tuesday.

Above: Look for a detailed account of the Shadow Broker DLC later this week

    @JohnDagger Post from Chris Priestly, on the Bioware Forums: Ok, some people have been asking when the Lair of the Shadowbroker DLC "takes place" in Mass Effect 2. As in can you play it before the suicide mission or only after. I went to the font of knowledge (the Mass Effect writers) and asked them. They said: "Like many of our missions, you can do the Shadowbroker DLC before or after the suicide mission. However, because we understood that most players would be coming to this after the suicide mission, we weighted the dialog much more heavily toward the assumption that the player had already completed it." So, you CAN do it before you do the suicide mission, but you'll get a different (and possibly more flavorful) reaction if you play it after." /endquote I know that I'm gonna play it after the SM. It would just seem weird to kill the Shadow Broker and then be like...ok, that's dealt with, let's go stop the Collectors!

    On my 3rd playthru and actually had to take a break because I was getting burnt out. I've been waiting to go back and play ME2 until this new DLC and pricetag was announced. Probably gonna buy some MS points this weekend so I can get the ME2 DLC and DR2: Case Zero

    How long is this meant to be exactly considering it's 800 points. It better be over 3 hrs. I doubt the shadow broker will even show his face anyway.

    Will definitely get this when I get more money. Overlord was pretty cool.

    I just don't know if I should play the DLC before or after the suicide mission...
  • Crabhand - September 2, 2010 1:53 a.m.

    Can't wait to play this DLC, I've always wondered about the Shadow Broker.
