Have you set aside a few extra bucks just to put towards new downloadable content for Mass Effect 2? Well, nice job Mr. Saves Money For Very Specific Scenarios guy, because Electronic Arts has revealed a fresh batch of sci-fi-rich DLC will be coming your way next month called "Overlord."
As Gamerzines reports, the DLC will include “five levels set across one story on one planet,” ME2 executive producer Casey Hudson announced during EA’s EU Showcase. No new party members will be introduced, and the self-contained adventure is expected to be more open for exploration compared to previous DLC missions, if for no other reason than you can use the Hammerhead tank to cruise around whatever planet serves as the setting for the DLC.
"Overlord" will run you 560 Microsoft/BioWare Points. Here's the official plot breakdown:
"When sent to investigate a Cerberus research base that's mysteriously gone silent, Shepard arrives to find Geth overrunning the base. The sole survivor, Chief Scientist Archer, paints a dire picture: an experiment to fuse a human volunteer with a virtual intelligence created a dangerous hybrid "VI overlord". The rampaging VI has already attacked three other Cerberus bases, controlling any technology it finds in an attempt to break free–and unleashing Geth across the planet. Unless Shepard can infiltrate the VI's fortress and shut it down, this homicidal intelligence will beam itself-off planet and wreak havoc on other systems."
