We had our first dose of EA Summer Showcase teasing today with the reveal that ‘something’ related to Mass Effect would be announced at this year’s EA Summer Showcase, while a whole new Army of Two games has so far been revealed, but now we get some more concrete information.
Mass Effect 3’s Leviathan downloadable content is real.
Here’s the official statement on the Leviathan add-on content for EA and BioWare’s Mass Effect 3:
“Mass Effect 3: Leviathan is the first story-driven, single player DLC to be made available since Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut. Leviathan expands upon the events of Mass Effect 3 with gripping and emotional storytelling, compelling new characters, powerful weapons and unique upgrades.
“Players will be able to discover more about the origins of the reapers as they race across the galaxy to unravel the mystery that surrounds the fabled Leviathan.”
“Something lurks in the dark corners of space, something powerful enough to kill a Reaper. Shepard must discover the most closely guarded secret in the galaxy before the Reapers silence it forever.
“Discover more about the origins of the Reapers as you race across the galaxy to find the Leviathan. Unravel the dark history of the Reaper Race before it is too late. Coming later this summer there is no war, only the harvest.
