Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC out now

$15 single-player expansion now available for BioWare's spacebound role-playing game on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, but not Wii U.

Gamers in the market for more Mass Effect 3 are in luck. The game's single-player Omega expansion arrived today on Xbox Live, PC, and PlayStation Network. The content costs $15 and weighs in at nearly 2GB.

The Omega downloadable content focuses on Aria and her fight to take back Omega with the help of series hero Commander Shepard.

"Forced to rely on Aria’s unique knowledge of the station and faced with her lust for revenge, how far will you go to retake Omega?" reads a line from the content's announcement.

Mass Effect 3's Omega DLC will not be available for the Wii U version of the game, BioWare revealed last week. For more on Omega, check out GameSpot's Now Playing video segment, embedded below.

If you love ME buy omega if not and you're on a budget; don't bother.  Go play ME2 lair of the shadow broker

this DLC sucked. Corridor shooter. not enough story. Butchered an interesting character in Aria T'Loak - one-dimensional. Completely boring environments. Glitches. Insulting thing? cannot even visit afterlife again. oh and EAware, dont bother with making a videogame out of mass effect EVER again, hand it over to a company that doesn't butcher series.

DAO-Awakening was in my opinion the only real DLC for a Bioware game in recent time..

Bought it and beat if yesterday, and I can honestly say that it's not worth it. This is quite possibly the most disappointing Mass Effect DLC I've ever played (although Arrival was pretty bad, too).For $15, you get 2 hours of gameplay. Once it's done, it's done. Shadow Broker allowed you to visit a new small area whenever you wanted and had a handful of fun little side things to explore. Not here. The story is weak and gives no compelling motivation for what Cerberus is doing, and there is no further insight into any other aspects of the plot.  Choice is entirely an illusion, as it ends exactly the same no matter how you decide to play things out, which is extremely disappointing given that a $15 pricetag should have some replay value. The writing is also extremely lazy. For example, there are two speeches during the DLC that are supposed to be inspiring (one of the ends up inspiring the citizens of Omega to fight against the Cerberus oppressors), but the speeches just come off as flat and unconvincing.On the good  side, Aria is fleshed out a bit more as a character, which was enjoyable to see.

It should have been part of the original release.

From what I've heard this DLC isn't worth the price, I'll wait for a sale.

15$ is pretty steep for DLC IMO.

ME3 GOTY version seems to be the best purchase for fans.

 @ValmartheMagi You need to watch again the ending, the extended one I mean. Or did you miss the part when they start repairing them?.

 @sonicare You think US$15 is steep?! I went to buy it on the Aussie store and it is AUD $23.95!

 @SolidTy The Mass Effect Trilogy might be a better purchase, especially for those who don't any of the games (such as myself).

 I'd rather play multiplayer for free, but some people seem to be enjoying this.

 @texasgoldrush now lets not got that far chief, there could have been some new weapons or squad mate or even an opportunity to show an actual mass effect 3 space battle (the ones they show are of one ship shooting once or twice at undisclosed target) but none of that happened. was i entertained? yes, was it better the LOTSB? absolutely not

 @strawberry9 I realize that some people enjoyed the ending, however it ruined the whole series for me.  I see no point in investing more time and money into the series when it does not affect the overall outcome of the game.  Most DLC content add to ending of a game not pre ending.  Won't be buying any of the ME3 DLC either.  Hope those that do enjoy it.

 If you're on PC, it's cheaper to buy each individual title on sale.  They don't include the majority of the DLCs, so that should be factored in as well.Still, great games, but hopefully they released a Mass Effect Complete version sometime down the line.

Just bought mine too.  I still haven't played Leviathan yet from being so busy playing multiplayer, once I heard Omega was comin I thought I'd just wait. So this next run through the sp campaign will have so much more content.  Really lookin forward to it.

 @d4rkscourge  @strawberry9 It depends on how much you value the experience relative to its cost.  I've generally found Mass Effect DLC to be worth the cost. 

 

Obviously not everyone is going to feel the same.

There are people who are racist and people who live in the tribes. 

 

The ending was bad. They should feel bad. It effectively reduces the meaning of DLCs like this to nothing.
