Mass Effect 3's upcoming, and potentially final, DLC release has received another trailer that should cause plenty of fans to wrestle with their emotions. The Citadel DLC will see Shepard reunited with his crew for "one last adventure" according to the description on the Youtube video. Expect Citadel to be available tomorrow, March 5, on XBLA, PSN and PC for $14.99 or 1200 MSP.
One last adventure? I suppose this means we're on the verge of single-player DLC development being wrapped up for Mass Effect 3. Makes sense, as we can likely expect the announcement of another Mass Effect title somewhere between now and the end of the year (just don't call it Mass Effect 4). Will Citadel fulfill those final fan wishes, providing players the closure they need to reinvest themselves in the franchise?
I won't lie, the prospect of reconnecting with all of the Mass Effect cast pulls my heartstrings. However, the idea that this is additional content and premium at that is just another barrier between myself and my love for what the franchise started out as. My favorite part of Mass Effect 2 was the game's Shadow Broker DLC and that saddens me to no end. I don't think I'll do that again. I played Mass Effect 3, that's enough for me.
For those more dedicated than I, which is likely the large majority of Mass Effect fans at this point, make sure to watch the trailer below. Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC launches tomorrow and could very well be the final release, until BioWare launches its next Mass Effect title of course. Until then... maybe we can meet up in the free multiplayer DLC.
