The final downloadable expansion for Mass Effect 3, “Citadel,” is now available to download on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The “emotionally driven” farewell to Commander Shepard and the crew of the Normandy has been priced at $14.99 (or 1200 Microsoft Points) on all platforms.
This emotionally driven piece of single player DLC expands on the events of Mass Effect 3 by inviting players to return to the capital of the Citadel Council in an effort to eliminate a startling threat. This new content will also feature Commander Shepard’s long-time friends and romance interests from the entire Mass Effect trilogy, as Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one more chance for fans to reconnect with their favorite characters and even rekindle past romances.
In addition to new story content, Mass Effect 3: Citadel will also give players the opportunity to use squad members from the entire Mass Effect series in a brand-new training facility on the Citadel. The Armax Combat Arena offers ten scenarios and will challenge players by dropping them in the middle of battle to fight off wave-after-wave of enemy forces. When the adventure is over, players can blow off some steam by trying their luck at the Citadel’s Silver Coast Casino or discover and furnish Commander Shepard’s living quarters on the station.
BioWare will put a cap on the career of Commander Shepard during this year’s PAX East convention. Executive Producer Casey Hudson, Lead Designer Preston Watamaniuk, Lead Cinematics Director Parrish Ley, Writer John Dobmrow and Level Designer Dusty Everman will take the stage on Saturday, March 23 at 2:00 PM to present “The Mass Effect Trilogy: A Retrospective.”
If at all possible, I suggest getting in line now.
