If a recent Microsoft Expert Zone quiz for retailers has it right, Mass Effect 2 will be supported with downloadable characters, specific combat content, and full episodic content.
This morning a tipster dropped us word and images from the Expert Zone quiz for Mass Effect 2. Created so the retailer can sell the product with more information in tow, it teases what kind of optional content is coming to the follow-up sci-fi RPG.
It lists, specifically in the Xbox LIVE Features section, “planned episodic combat via DLC,” weapon and armor packs, new downloadable characters for the “campaign experience,” new downloadable worlds, as well as “full campaign expansions for download.”
It also mentions that the game will carry “periodic updates,” which features DLC, via Mass Effect 2’s unannounced in-game “Cerberus Network.”
So, in other words, BioWare is probably planning to support Mass Effect 2 in ways we wished the studio would have for the original. Sounds good, right?
