Mass Effect 3 single-player campaign is poised to get its first story-based DLC - Leviathan - on 28 August, across all three gaming platforms - PC, PlayStation 3 (PS3) and Xbox. Meanwhile, BioWare has released a new launch trailer depicting the events concerning the origin of Reapers, and Commander Shepard's underwater adventure in pursuit of a mysterious creature called Leviathan, which is capable of killing the Reapers.
The Leviathan DLC is expected to add more details to the Mass Effect 3 endings with additional dialogue content to the revised ending. The star child AI is reportedly expected to reveal further details on the origin of the Reapers and their relation to their creators - the titular Leviathans.
According to Digital Spy, Players will get to explore new uncharted planets and star systems, new areas of the Citadel and encounter new characters. All these game elements will enhance the core gameplay, besides aiding in unearthing the history of the Reapers.
