BioWare Details Next Paid DLC Offering "Overlord"


Being members of Mass Effect 2’s Cerberus Network served to keep us well equipped.  However, we started to run out of in-game real estate, and Kasumi – Stolen Memory just didn’t make the grade.

BioWare announced today that players will, in June, get access to “Overlord;” a new premium DLC offering that adds five new areas and a couple of Achievements to the game.

This add-on will cost consumers 560 Microsoft or BioWare points (on Xbox 360 or PC, respectively), the equivalent of $7 (USD).

Press Release:

Destroy the overlord, or let havoc reign! BioWare is continuing its commitment to add new content to Mass Effect 2 with Overlord, a new premium downloadable content pack coming in June. Overlord adds five new areas and two new achievements to Mass Effect 2 and will be available for the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system at a cost of 560 Microsoft points and on PC for 560 BioWare points or $7.

In Overlord, players will take Commander Shepard and his crew to investigate a Cerberus research base that has mysteriously gone silent. They arrive to find that Geth troopers have overrun the base. The sole survivor paints a dire picture: an experiment to fuse a human volunteer with a virtual intelligence has created a dangerous hybrid VI Overlord. The rampaging VI Overlord has already attacked three other Cerberus bases, taking control of any technology it finds—and unleashing hostile Geth across the planet in the process. Unless Shepard can infiltrate the VI’s fortress and shut it down, this homicidal intelligence will beam itself off the planet and wreak havoc on other systems throughout the galaxy.

Mass Effect 2 is the highest rated video game of 2010 and was released to worldwide critical acclaim on January 26, 2010. For more information, please visit http://masseffect.bioware.com/
