BioWare recently announced a new Mass Effect 3 (ME3) single-player DLC called Omega, alongside its plans to unleash a brand new IP with a full ME game. Meanwhile, details of the Omega DLC have surfaced on Hold The Line community forum, wherein users have attributed the leaked information found on disc to the game's text files.

As Gaming Bolt notes, Aria seems to be keen on retaking the orbiting station of Omega from Cerberus, and Commander Shepard is hired for this special task that's allegedly the key objective in Omega DLC. During the mission, you are expected to meet Zaeed Massani, who's allegedly with Cerberus. Killing this man for precious supplies of Element Zero forms the crux of the story.

The complete summary of the plot is given below:

"Aria tells you that Omega is now under a blockade from Cerberus. Since a direct attack didn't work, Cerberus is now trying to starve Omega into submission by blockading supply ships coming in through the regular Omega relay. The level's appearance will change to reflect this - the Afterlife has gone quiet, the music is off, the flashing lights are gone, maybe a soup kitchen has taken over the dance floor. Aria requests that you steal into the blockade and board the command ship. Take down the blockade so Omega can be resupplied.

"As punishment for breaking the neutrality pact, Cerberus launches an attack against Omega. The enemy is attempting to destroy Omega's shields, which will allow asteroids and meteors to smash into the station. You must repel the assault and ensure the shield remain operational."

It seems quite clear that it could be BioWare's well planned decision to cut content from the original ME3 and then play the restore game with DLCs. First we saw the Leviathan DLC leak on the disc and now it's time for the Omega DLC. Yet, it is still not certain if BioWare cooked up the DLCs well before the release of the main game.

The big question is: if the content was on disc, then are we being forced to buy DLCs to get lost content back with the controversial Mass Effect 3 ending notwithstanding.
