Mass Effect 3's (ME3) upcoming Omega DLC is expected to hit all three gaming platforms (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC) on 27 November. However, the European PS3 users need to wait a bit longer for its release on 28 November.
Apart from the release date details, the file size of the Omega expansion pack and more leaked screenshots of the DLC have surfaced on the internet. As GamenGuide notes, BioWare has revealed two new images on its Facebook page: one depicting Aria T'Loak and the female version of Commander Shepard, and the other showing male Commander Shepard, Aria, and female Turian Nyreen battling against unknown forces.
Mass Effect 3's Omega DLC revolves around pirate queen Aria T'Loak's attempt to recapture the Omega space station from General Oleg Petrovsky, one of Cerberus' most accomplished operatives.
The DLC will take the players through a rollercoaster ride through the criminal world of the Omega space station, while gamers get to control the biotic powers of Aria. Besides, another new female Turian character - Nyreen Kandros - makes the debut in the upcoming DLC for the Mass Effect franchise. Invariably, Commander Shepard is assigned the task of supporting the brave Turian leader of Talon mercenary group to free the enslaved people of Omega.
The new single-player DLC will reportedly feature four action-packed campaigns, besides introducing a new Cerberus-controlled Reaper called the Adjutant.
The new DLC worth 1.99GB of content is reportedly the largest downloadable content released yet, for the immensely successful ME trilogy. It is also the most expensive single-player DLC (priced at $14.99 or £10 or 1,200 Microsoft Points) from the franchise apart from Mass Effect 2's Cerberus Pass.
In related news, BioWare confirmed that the Omega DLC will not release on the Wii U platform.
"Unfortunately it will not be available for Wii U," tweeted BioWare.
The game developer, however, hinted that there could be future DLC's ported to the Wii U.
