Mass Effect 3's Omega downloadable content will be available tomorrow, November 27, for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in North America. Despite what a rogue press release from publisher Electronic Arts may have said, we double-checked and the company reconfirmed the release date.
The Omega DLC finds Cmdr. Shepard working with the Omega space station's powerful puppet master Aria T'Loak to regain control of the galaxy's den of scum and villainy from Cerberus. The DLC also adds a playable Turian female to the cast, along with a couple bonus weapons.
Revisit one of the best games of 2012* and one of the most beloved franchises of this console generation when Mass Effect™ 3: Omega launches today. This thrilling new piece of single player DLC expands upon the events of Mass Effect 3 by allowing players to return to the seedy and unsavory levels of Omega to fight alongside fan favorite Aria T'Loak. This new chapter in Commander Shepard's journey will also add powerful weapons and introduce never-before-seen characters to the franchise.
Cerberus agent Oleg Petrovsky and his squadron have seized the infamous black market trade post known as Omega. As its self-proclaimed rightful leader, the legendary biotic Aria T'Loak plots her revenge to reclaim her domain by teaming up with Commander Shepard and another mysterious ally. They must put aside their differences and fight side-by-side to defeat the Illusive Man's reign over the space station and free the enslaved people of Omega. In addition to the new story content, Mass Effect 3: Omega also includes two bonus weapons, the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle and Chakram Launcher, previously only available through pre-order promotions.
Mass Effect 3: Omega will be available to download on Xbox LIVE® and Origin™ starting today and on PlayStation® Network in North America on November 27 and in Europe on November 28 for £11.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points.
