Mass Effect 3 DLC packs Citadel, Reckoning coming

Players who aren't ready to stop adventuring with Commander Shepard and his Mass Effect 3 team will get one final chance to tag along with the interstellar hero. BioWare has announced the final two DLC packs for the game, Citadel and Reckoning.

Reckoning, which will be released on February 26, is a free multiplayer pack that will introduce new character kits and weapons, while Citadel will be a single-player campaign aboard the space station. Coming March 5, Citadel will cost $14.99 (1200 MS points).

"The team has poured heart and soul into Mass Effect 3: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3: Citadel. As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet," said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. "We have always been humbled and driven by the passion of our fans for the Mass Effect trilogy. We hope fans will enjoy spending more time with some of their favorite characters--we have certainly enjoyed spending time creating them. We're excited to release this final sendoff for the trilogy and move forward into the future of the Mass Effect universe."

BioWare is already working on the next game, and has already revealed that the "future" of the Mass Effect universe won't include Shepard. Development will be in the hands of BioWare Montreal.
