Lord over Mass Effect 2 with DLC “Overlord”

Xbox 360 RPG PC News


Bioware has released new information about a brand new DLC pack named Overlord. Priced at 560 MSP/bioware points depending on the console purchased for, players of ME2 will be in for a ton of new features and new storyline featuring a violent AI. One thing however is that there will be no inclusion of new party members which is unfortunate.

Full information and story from Bioware’s website below:

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. The action unfolds over five new level areas, with two new achievements.

One small notice, whatever happened to the Cerberus network? It was said that there would be a relatively continuous release of content available for the network. However rather than there being the addition of new content, we are seeing priced content that costs money for both those who have the network and don’t have the network. I wonder what will happen down the line, if they will ever release more for the network or if it was simply a gimmick to purchase the title as new.

    You’re probably right, and I feel duped :/ They’re doing the same with Battlefield Bad Company 2 and there has only been one “free” update via their “VIP membership” that’s similar to the Cerberus Network. I know the rest has been priced, though they’re still releasing content so hopefully they don’t shut down the servers before we can get some more additions…

    Also, is it just me or does that sound like a Mass Effect side plot story? Which is what this is, so I don’t understand why we have to pay more to keep playing the game. Ah, gaming companies. :p

    Yeah, i think it was a gimmick too, like they did with Dragon Age Origins to mantain some kind of profit even on used copies, like they will be doing now with their EA Sports brand too.

    It would be nice if they released more free content for us, or at least cheaper, as i dont think these DLC’s should cost $7 ($5 would be better). Less DLCs could work better too.

    Well, i normally ignore these DLCs, but those with stories i always feel like i’m missing something which should’ve come with the game.
