Rumors flew about BioWare’s first piece of single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3 being called Leviathan, that it referred to a rogue Reaper, and that you could possibly get it as a War Asset. Now, the company behind one of the most successful space operas this century has confirmed the rumors at EA’s Summer Showcase. Check the trailer for a look at this newest addition to the Mass Effect universe.
Leviathan has Shepard looking through new parts of the Citadel and the galaxy as a whole to find something more efficiently capable of defeating a reaper. After all, orbital strikes are so very expensive these days. And in the process, Shepard will learn more about the Reapers’ origins and why they consume all organic life (if the explanation at the game’s end didn’t make it plain enough). Not only will new planets and characters be introduced but two weapons as well, the AT-12 Raider shotgun and the M-55 Argus assault rifle. Whether or not you’re excited about these armory additions depends on if you knew they were exclusive preorders way back in March. You got the boomstick for pre-ordering from EA’s Origin service, and the Argus just for pre-ordering at all. Recent updates have said that Leviathan will add a new wrinkle to the ending, changing it in ways we have yet to fathom.
In addition to this, BioWare will release the Firefight DLC, which includes the above-mentioned weapons and five bonus weapons as well. Details are sketchy about this one, but we won’t have to wait long to see it. BioWare releases it this Tuesday.
So, are you excited for the first bit of single-player DLC, or are you skeptical that it won’t be worth the ten-dollar pricetag? Let us know in the comments section down below, and please remember to Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

Across every genre of entertainment there are specific titles or releases that become synonymous with failure, that in the eyes of fans and critics alike embody the worst that the genre has to offer.
