Due out on April 10 (April 11 for European PlayStation 3 users), the Resurgence Pack brings new characters Asari Justicar Adept, Krogan Battlemaster Vanguard, Geth Infiltrator, Geth Engineer, and Bataria Soldier and Sentinel to Mass Effect 3. On top of the new characters, the DLC adds new maps called Firebase Condor and Firebase Hydra.

The Resurgence Pack won't be the only free DLC headed to Mass Effect 3. Yesterday, BioWare announced that it would address fans' concerns regarding the Mass Effect 3 endgame with new content called Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, which is slated to arrive sometime this summer.
