BioWare has revealed that they plan to use downloadable content to bridge the gap between Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
“So, for the time being there's going to be a continued stream of DLC for people,” ME2 lead producer Casey Hudson recently told Video Gamer. “We'll start to have packs that'll tell the story between Mass Effect 2 and 3. But beyond that we kind of have to see how people are responding to what we have and go from there."
While BioWare have released a number of paid DLC packs via ME2’s in-game Cerberus Network service, Katsumi – Stolen Memory has been the only story-driven offering. It isn’t clear at this point how the upcoming Overlord DLC will factor into the overall Mass Effect story, but that won’t be a mystery for too much longer as the pack is scheduled for release next month.
Using DLC to fill in the gaps leading up to ME3 is a great idea, and it will interesting to see what BioWare does with it. Hopefully, though, casual ME fans won’t feel completely out of the loop when ME3 is finally released simply because they haven’t bought all of the ME2 DLC leading up to it. I say this as someone who will most likely be in this very situation by the time ME3 is released.
Am I the only one?
