Second ‘Mass Effect 3’ Single Player DLC to Take Place on Omega?

By | 4 years ago 

After the game’s ending fiasco and resulting DLC to “fix” said ending, many doubted the development of any future single player DLC for Mass Effect 3 – or that some fans would even be interested at this point. It seems like EA isn’t letting this snag stop them from dishing it out anyway and with one single player DLC already on its way, another may have already been discovered.

Unlike the series’ previous installment which featured gobs of single player goodness, Mass Effect 3 DLC has been focused squarely on the multiplayer aspects of the game — that is, until the most recent announcement of the Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC, which is set to be a lengthy two hour campaign that takes the Shep gang to investigate a fabled “being” called Leviathan, rumored to be capable of destroying the Reapers. In addition to an expansion of the story, the DLC will also delve deeper into the Reaper history – great for the lore junkies out there.

Not but days after EA‘s official announcement and are fans already digging around to see what’s next – and it might have paid off. Some fans believe they’ve found evidence that a future DLC might take place in the Cerberus-occupied space station Omega, often described as “the Terminus Systems’ dark, twisted counterpart to the Citadel.” Players found their way to this den of crime in Mass Effect 2.

Since then, it has been taken by Cerberus to guard the Omega 4 relay, the details of which can be recounted in Mass Effect: Invasion, a four-issue comic mini-series. There were hints in Mass Effect 3 that a plan to retake Omega might happen, but there was no follow through.

That might all change, since the resourceful fans in the BioWare forums found several inactive weapon mods in the Firefight DLC that were labeled with the “Omg” location, the same label used to note items in Mass Effect 2 found at Omega. While this evidence is pretty shaky, it might just be a hint of things to come. After all, the story was all set up in-game, it seems a likely direction for BioWare to take future DLC. Plus it’s always good to tie up those loose ends – a lesson they have learned all too well. Be sure to stay tuned to Game Rant for future updates to this story.
