The first downloadable content for blockbuster RPG Mass Effect was announced this morning. Check out the screen! That's the Batarians. You'll be spending a lot of time with them.
The “Bring Down the Sky” downloadable content pack will be released to Xbox LIVE Marketplace on Monday, March 10 at 2 a.m. PDT, and will be available for 400 MS points. This is the first in a series of planned downloadable content that further expands the “Mass Effect” universe and continues the adventures of Commander Shepard and the Normandy crew.
Here's what you can expect:
A "new uncharted world that introduces the notorious and feared alien race of the Batarians. A Batarian extremist group has hijacked a mobile asteroid station in the Asgard system, setting it on a collision course with the nearby colony world of Terra Nova. Only Commander Shepard can save the millions of innocent civilians before the asteroid completes its deadly descent."
