Plot Details Discovered for Mass Effect 3′s Upcoming Omega DLC
It looks like a few crafty gamers have managed to discover what lies in store for those who plan to play Mass Effect 3‘s Omega DLC. After combing through the game disc for information, they stumbled upon what they claim are plot details for the next piece of story-based downloadable content.
Note: The following information contains SPOILERS, so proceed at your own risk.
Aria tells you that Omega is now under a blockade from Cerberus. Since a direct attack didn’t work, Cerberus is now trying to starve Omega into submission by blockading supply ships coming in through the regular Omega relay. The level’s appearance will change to reflect this – the Afterlife has gone quiet, the music is off, the flashing lights are gone, maybe a soup kitchen has taken over the dance floor. Aria requests that you steal into the blockade and board the command ship. Take down the blockade so Omega can be resupplied.
As punishment for breaking the neutrality pact, Cerberus launches an attack against Omega. The enemy is attempting to destroy Omega’s shields, which will allow asteroids and meteors to smash into the station. You must repel the assault and ensure the shield remain operational.
Sounds pretty legit to me, and this wouldn’t be the first time gamers have discovered DLC by exploring files on the disc.
