Fans clamoring for the latest adventure in the galaxy-trotting Mass Effect saga are going to get it via Mass Effect 2's latest content update, Lair of the Shadow Broker. The critically adored role-playing game is set to expand sometime in the future with a new mission pack that brings an old friend back into the mix.
Following Commander Shepard's apparent death at the beginning of the sequel, his blue-skinned comrade Liara T'Soni clashed with the mysterious shadow broker over the remains of the commander's body. Mass Effect 2's latest expansion catapults Liara back to Shepard's crew and brings the fight to the lair of the mysterious broker of shadows.
BioWare today announced the new content via a brief update on Mass Effect 2's official Web site. The statement was light on details and confirmed only that the content will become available "soon." A price point for the pack was not provided.
Additionally, fans looking to get a glimpse at the content are in luck, as BioWare has uploaded three screenshots of the content to its site.
Lair of the Shadow Broker will follow June's Overlord downloadable content, which added five planets to the galaxy, each of which is explorable using the Hammerhead tank, a vehicle first introduced in the game's Firewalker pack.
