The next offering of Mass Effect 3 DLC has been revealed in an unexpected way. Gamers have discovered a script for new content concealed in the recently released Extended Cut which appears to provide the first details of previously unknown ‘Leviathan’ DLC.
The information included in the code – which can be found at Pastebin – includes new dialogue, new codex entries and the ENTIRE plot line for the next bit of DLC, which focuses on a defected reaper called Leviathan, who can apparently be used against the Reapers as a War Asset, implying the new content takes place before the final mission of Mass Effect 3.

Gamers should probably expect some official confirmation for the ‘Leviathan’ DLC sooner rather than later, if a tweet from Mass Effect 3 Producer Mike Gamble is anything to go by: "As I've said before, we do this for you! EC was our gift to the fans. Hope you enjoyed. Also... keep your ears open over the next little while."
While it’s not a huge shock to learn that Bioware has plans for more DLC for Mass Effect 3, it is bewildering that anyone at the company seriously believed no-one would notice what it had squirreled away.
