Mass Effect 2 demo out today, new DLC out tomorrow

Recommended Videos

Like demos? Like DLC? Like Mass Effect 2? Depending on how you answer those questions, EA and Bioware might have something for you, today and tomorrow!

If you said “yes” to the first question, but “not sure, I haven’t played it” to the third, then rejoice, for a Mass Effect 2 demo is out on Xbox LIVE and PC today. Go get it! Or read our review. Or do both!

If you said “yes” to questions two and three, you can rejoice tomorrow, because tomorrow is June 15th, which is when the next big DLC pack comes out for both the PC and Xbox 360. Called “Overlord“, this seems to be one of the heftiest packs to date, with five missions and two more achievements.

And lastly, if you answered “kind of, but I need to know what it’s about before I buy it” to the second question, here’s the skinny: Overlord will have Shepard and crew fighting against a “VI Overlord” created by the failed fusion of human and AI.

I for one am quite interested, and will be taking Tali on the mission, as it likely involves fighting a lot of robots. Actually, even if the mission involved no robots whatsoever, I’d still take Tali, because I like Tali.
