While gamers are already enjoying the new multiplayer character classes, guns, etc. included with Mass Effect 3‘s Reckoning DLC, there is still one more piece to the puzzle: the single-player focused Citadel expansion. Though we have some clues as to what Citadel will entail, the larger story is a bit of a mystery.
However, the achievements/trophies for the DLC have made their way online to help clear up any questions. That said, the achievements aren’t going to blow the lid wide open on Mass Effect 3: Citadel — they deal mostly in vague descriptions.
For starters, Mass Effect 3: Citadel adds 250 Gamerscore for players to collect, or if you’re a PS3 player: 9 trophies to add to the collection. They range from 50 GS all the way down to 10.

Based on the descriptions, it appears Citadel will have some interactive experiences within the larger narrative, namely an arcade game and a combat simulator. How exactly those will work from a gameplay perspective is unclear, but they sound interesting.
As far as the story achievements go it sounds like Citadel will feature Commander Shepard, and the Normandy crew, attempting to stop an “out-of-control scheme.” There will be some leads to follow, and a requisite storming of an enemy stronghold — fairly standard stuff for Mass Effect 3.
The post of NeoGAF mentions that most of the achievements are story progression-based, while the others might be a little trickier to unlock. The 50-point achievement for defeating a group of Spectre-level opponents sends like a real doozy.
These achievements don’t provide any clues as far as Citadel’s story goes, though. We know that BioWare rallied the troops, called all hands on deck, in order to send the trilogy off in style, so we’d like to know what they have prepared for fans. Mostly, we would like to avoid the type of disappointment that came with the Mass Effect 3 endings.
What do you think of the achievements for Citadel? Do you plan on collecting them all?
Mass Effect 3: Citadel is slated for a March 5, 2013 release on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
