Today, Bioware has finally let the cat out of the bag on Arrival. Arrival is the final chapter of Mass Effect 2 and now everybody knows a little more about the insert included in Dragon Age 2 games. Over the last couple of days, Bioware has teased screenshots on their Facebook page and announced them on Twitter. This, of course, was met with on what the screens were depicting. With as little as they have released about it, the guessing will undoubtedly continue.
Bioware hasn’t said a lot but, gave a little insight into what the final chapter’s mission will be. They announced, on their webpage, ‘In Mass Effect: Arrival, Commander Shepard is sent to the edge of the galaxy to rescue an undercover operative who may have evidence of an imminent Reaper invasion that has been looming since the very beginning of the series.’ This download for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 will be available for download on March 29th. Most likely it will be priced at US $10 or 800 Microsoft points the same price as the previous and well received download, Lair of The Shadow Broker.
If you have an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, you have a lot of alternatives to giving Microsoft and Sony your credit card information. Here in Los Angeles you can buy prepaid points cards almost anywhere. Big box stores, your local game store or even grocery, drug and convenience stores now carry point of sale activated cards. If the last download was any indication, you will want this last piece of Mass Effect 2 before the sequel is out later this year.
