Mass Effect 3: Citadel confirmed as last campaign DLC

EA has announced new Mass Effect 3 campaign and multiplayer DLC.

The free Reckoning multiplayer pack will release on February 26, introducing fresh maps, character kits, weapons and upgrades for the game’s online component, but presumably most fans will be more interested in the titles’s last campaign add-on, entitled Citadel.

Launching on March 5, it will take players “on an emotional ride with their favourite characters” as they “explore and discover new locations across the vast, deep-space station” in what’s billed as the “final send-off for Commander Shepard”. Citadel will cost $14.99 on PS3 and PC and 1200 MS Points (£10.28 / €14.40 / $15) on Xbox 360.

Casey Hudson, executive producer for the Mass Effect series, said his team "has poured heart and soul into" Reckoning and Citadel. "As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet. We have always been humbled and driven by the passion of our fans for the Mass Effect trilogy. We hope fans will enjoy spending more time with some of their favourite characters -- we have certainly enjoyed spending time creating them. We're excited to release this final send-off for the trilogy and move forward into the future of the Mass Effect universe."

BioWare has said that the next Mass Effect game will explore “new directions, both on the gameplay and story fronts”, and that it will run on DICE’s Frostbite engine. Hudson has also asked fans whether they would like the title to be a sequel or prequel, and noted significant interest in playable non-human protagonists. Here’s where we want to see the franchise go next.

    Go read the details on the Mass Effect website. They're making it sound like you can get any squadmate from the entire trilogy to join you for this 'Citadel' sub-plot as long as they're still alive. If anything, Wrex has been confirmed.

    It's been a hell of a ride over the last year. I've put more time into this game than any other in that time, especially the multiplayer. (474 hours and counting, and that's nothing compared to the top-ranked players). I'm looking forward to this last hurrah and one last ride with Commander Shepard.
