BioWare is hard at work on unannounced DLC for Mass Effect 3
Judging from the hints BioWare has been dropping for the next Mass Effect 3 DLC, it's going to be big. What suggests that? The fact that they seem to be rounding up nearly everyone and anyone involved with the series for the last two years to contribute to it.
In development at BioWare Edmonton, the main studio behind the Mass Effect series, the new, currently-untitled DLC will boast a story crafted by an unusually sized eight-person team of writers. "It's all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every Mass Effect 3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved," BioWare designer Jos Hendriks said on the company's official forum. "If my math skills are correct [that means] eight."
Also set to be involved in the DLC is chief Mass Effect 3 composer Sam Hulick, who's been absent from composing for the game since its Extended Cut DLC. "What I'm up to lately: working on an unannounced Mass Effect 3 DLC! More details on this coming later on," Hulick tweeted, adding in a subsequent post, "Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears."
Along with Hulick, fellow ME3 composers Sascha Dikiciyan and Cris Velasco are contributing to the score of the DLC, which will feature "more" music than the other add-ons.
Not only are people involved with the game's creation being called back, a few of the voice actors are coming back as well. This includes actors Raphael Sbarge (voice of squadmate Kaidan Alenko) and Seth Green (voice of Normandy pilot Joker), whose participation was exposed by BioWare producer and voice director Caroline Livingstone, who tweeted, "@SethGreen Thank you for yet another fantastic session. And thank you for being such a kind person. You are lovely!"
From the look of things, BioWare appears to be going all out for the next Mass Effect 3 DLC. The company has already released four add-ons for the game (From Ashes, Extended Cut, Leviathan, and Omega), so is it possible that this next one could be the last one, the epic grand finale for Mass Effect 3's DLC?
