Mass Effect 2 'Shadow Broker' DLC coming Sept. 7th - new screens and details inside

BioWare's official site has been updated with new information on Shadow Broker, the latest Mass Effect 2 DLC expansion. According to the site's brief description, the new mission teams Shepard with Liara T'Soni on a quest to track down the devious and elusive Shadow Broker, kicking off on the lush planet of Illum and concluding in the secret lair of the mystery man himself. It also adds five new achievements and the opportunity to continue a relationship with the baby-faced blue heroine... er, genderlessoine.

Above: No, I won't look at you... it's more dramatic this way

The DLC will be available on September 7th, and will set you back 800 MS Points on 360, or 800 BioWare Points on PC. See all of the new screenshots in our viewer!

    I'm incredibly excited for this and thankfully, I'm about to start a play-through on this game (again) with my Jennifer Hale-voiced female Shepard so this will be a nice end of game bookend quest for my play-through. Oh and the forum thread for this DLC at Bioware's social forums are ridiculously saturated by complaining and whining of the price and content... and that the PS3 version will be getting all of the DLC for "free" even though they waited a year. Seriously, this DLC really isn't that much and it kind of fits into the storyline of Mass Effect 2 more so than Overlord did...

    Just after I had given up waiting for this and used my left over points to download serious sam hd it then gets a release date :( I suppose it's only going to be about an hr and a half long any way and simply not worth it. After this bioware should focus all their resources on mass effect 3 and forget about any more dlc, otherwise we may never see the sequel. It could end up like half life 3!

    Just finished 2 last night on Insanity and was frantically searching for info on this afterwards. If only I knew all I needed to do was wait a few hours. Can't wait.
