BioWare is finally closing the book on Mass Effect 2. The developer today announced Mass Effect: Arrival, the final downloadable add-on for the sci-fi role-playing sequel.
Set for release March 29, Arrival sees Commander Shepard investigating clues to an impending Reaper invasion on the edge of the galaxy. The downloadable content will also see the return of actor Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Stone Cold) lending his voice to Admiral Hackett. The add-on will sell for $7 (560 Microsoft points).
While Mass Effect 2: Arrival is expected to bridge the gap between the second and third installments of the game, it's not entirely clear what Mass Effect 3 has in store for players when it is launched later this year. To date, BioWare has released little more than a teaser trailer and a description on the Electronic Arts storefront's product page that reads, "Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth."
