Mass Effect 2 had a many-tentacled downloadable content plan befitting the game's sprawling sci-fi saga. It appears Mass Effect 3 will have a few more tentacles on top of that, as a product listing on the site of self-explanatory retailer Big Bad Toy Store has tied DLC for the game to the next wave of Mass Effect action figures.
According to the site, each of the four figures in the set will include a code that can be redeemed for multiplayer DLC for the Xbox 360 or PC versions of Mass Effect 3. The description notes that the codes "could…include character boosters, weapon modifications, and weapon upgrades to make your multiplayer squad stronger."
Set for release in the second quarter of the year, the Mass Effect 3 toys will include figures of Miranda, Mordin, Legion, and Garrus. Big Bad Toy Store has the suggested price of the set at $80, or $20 per figure. A BioWare representative had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment as of press time.
