BioWare revealed details today about the new in-game content distribution service, called the "Cerberus Network,” found in the developer’s highly anticipated space epic Mass Effect 2. As BioWare explains, the network will serve as a “conduit for players to receive bonus content as well as daily messages and news on upcoming releases for Mass Effect 2.”
"We’re thrilled to be able to reward loyal BioWare and Mass Effect fans with ongoing, high quality content and provide a direct channel for our players to dive deeper into the intriguing lore of Mass Effect,” BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka said in a statement.
Additionally, if you buy the game new, you’ll receive a download voucher for the in-game network, which will allow you to access to the game’s first free DLC pack being released on launch day (Jan. 26). For those planning to pick up a used copy of the down the line, you’ll have to buy a download code to unlock the in-game content network.
