[Kotaku] Mass Effect 3 DLC Pops Up Early on Xbox Marketplace, Spoils Plot Point.

post #1 of 47

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
A listing on the Xbox 360 marketplace may have inadvertently revealed one of the first pieces of downloadable content for upcoming sci-fi role-playing game Mass Effect 3 — and spoiled a plot point from the game.

Warning: Minor spoilers about the nature of one of the game's DLC packs follow.

Mass Effect 3: From Ashes, released February 20 presumably by accident, will apparently allow players to "unearth lost secrets from the past" and enlist a member of the game's Prothean race (confirming previous rumors).

Source

Well, I suppose there's going be day-one DLC. Even worse, if you've been following the Mass Effect series, the content in that DLC will most likely anger you as its a rather critical element of the story.

I guess Bioware is desperate for a cash grab. It's making me consider whether I still want to buy the game or not.

I personally think that the spoiler isn't really that bad.

The more pressing issue here is that they're cutting content and then slapping it on as DLC. Bad move if you ask me.

How much did it cost?
I didn't buy the digital deluxe edition so that would be good information for me to know.

800 MS points; which I think is roughly around $10? I don't have an Xbox, so I'm not exactly sure how much it is.

So, it's going to be $70 for ME3?

$70USD today would have been $60USD in Q1-2008.

this is no spoiler as this was rumored but also confirmed before this EVER popped up, there's even been sound files detected about the prothean squadmate which has him have a variation of a Jamaician accent within the Demo of ME3 aswell.

10 dollars... I was hoping 7 (that's the price for extra squadmate dlc in me2). Hopefully, it will be a good dlc worth the price.

it's not spoiling the story it's not even a real spoiler as people already knew the squadmate race and Voice aswell knew how'd he would play within ME3, also to on the Teaser of one of the videos from early last year about the mystery squadmate being a Prothean. then 2 months ago someone posted a concept art and part of ingame footage which showed the spaulders and part of the arm of the Prothean squadmate which looked identical leading to the comfirmation of what the prothean will actually look like ingame smile.gif so again no spoilers it's only confirming what was already known
