Mass Effect 3 is set to receive a brand new story-based add-on, as various BioWare sources and collaborators have confirmed that work has begun on the upcoming single-player expansion which should once again feature characters like Joker, Kaiden or Ashley.
Mass Effect 3 came out back in March and, since then, developer BioWare has kept on releasing all sorts of new content for the game, from fresh single-player adventures for Commander Shepard, like Leviathan or the recent Omega
, to new DLC for the multiplayer
, in the form of various equipment packs.
Now, after Omega was released late last month, BioWare has begun work on the next single-player expansion for the game.
According to designer Jos Hendricks, who talked with Mass Effect fans on the BSN
, the new add-on is a group effort between all of the writers who worked on the actual game.
"It's all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every ME3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved," Hendricks said, and then clarified that eight writers are contributing to the new add-on.
The composer of the Mass Effect franchise, Sam Hulick, also revealed a few details about the add-on via his Twitter
account, confirming that he's working on the expansion's soundtrack after he skipped both Leviathan and Omega.
"What I’m up to lately: working on an unannounced Mass Effect 3 DLC! More details on this coming later on," he said. "Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears." Eurogamer
also reports that the voice actor for Joker, Seth Green, and the one for Kaiden Alenko, Raphael Sbarge, have begun recording new lines for BioWare, which obviously hints that the expansion will feature at least the two characters.
As of yet, however, BioWare itself hasn't released any info on this new expansion for Mass Effect 3.
