Last week at Gamescom 2010 in Germany, Electronic Arts announced that the critically adored Mass Effect 2 would be ported to the PlayStation 3 next year. But before Commander Shepard can grace Sony's machine, he's going to travel to the Shadow Broker's lair.
Last month BioWare announced the Lair of the Shadow Broker downloadable content with scant details. Today, however, the developer clarified the content much further. A post on the BioWare Social Network today pegs the DLC to drop on September 7 for 800 Microsoft points on the Xbox 360 and for $10 on the PC.
BioWare also announced details on what gamers can expect if they choose to download the expansion. The Shadow Broker DLC will pack in five new achievements to collect, new research, and the Shadow Broker intelligence center.
Additionally, BioWare reintroduces players to Shepard's blue-skinned comrade Liara T'Soni in the upcoming content. 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. And in the Shadow Broker DLC, Shepard and Liara will again fight together, this time, however, at the lair of the broker of shadows.
Lair of the Shadow Broker follows 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.
