Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC will not be coming to Wii U, says EA
Say you got a Wii U. Say you got a copy of Mass Effect 3: Special Edition. Say you're feeling good now that you have the newest version of Shepard's final adventure and can watch it get the same respect as its other versions, with new content being released for the new system alongside those versions.
If the above describes you, then prepare yourself for something dreadful, as EA has confirmed that the next piece of ME3 DLC, the single-player 'Omega' campaign, will not be launching on the Wii U when it releases next week.
Responding to questions about a possible Wii U launch on the official Mass Effect Twitter account, EA confirmed that the Wii U will not be getting Omega, and it's possible it may never get it. When asked, EA was unable to say whether the Wii U version game will ever get DLC outside of the content that is available on the disc.
Additionally, EA failed to provide clarity when asked if there were any plans to release the first two Mass Effect games on the Wii U.
For those currently not getting the short end of the Mass Effect 3 stick, those with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game, the Omega DLC will be available on November 27 for $14.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points.
