Mass Effect 3 "Omega" DLC Confirmed, New Mass Effect Game In The Works

Mass Effect 3 “Omega” DLC Confirmed, New Mass Effect Game In The Works

Last Monday, we reported that Mass Effect fans were given a rare treat at the Montreal Comic Con — a glimpse at what could be the next single player DLC for Mass Effect 3. Fans have speculated as to what that “red thing”  featured in the blurry image taken at the event was as it could provide hints as to what the focus of the next Mass Effect 3 DLC would be.

Today, you’ll have to wonder no more because we’ve gotten confirmation that the next Mass Effect 3 DLC will be called “Omega.”

The announcement came from Bioware Edmonton and Montreal General Manager Aaryn Flynn in a post on the Bioware Blog. Flynn also talks about the future of the Mass Effect series and hints that Executive Producer Casey Hudson have plans for another Mass Effect game:

“Executive Producer Casey Hudson and his team are coming off an amazing eight-year run with the Mass Effect trilogy. But they’re not done yet. We are releasing more multiplayer content and we have more single-player stories coming throughout the next six months, including Omega which is coming in the Fall. But the Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey and our teams have plans for another full game. ‘Where to go next?’ with such a project has been a question a lot of us have been asking, and we’d all love to hear your ideas.”

In addition to Omega  DLC for Mass Effect 3 and the new Mass Effect game, Flynn also reminds people that Dragon Age III: Inquisition is well underway and that the production team has been “meeting with fans about what they want in a new Dragon Age game.” But what’s probably even bigger news is that Bioware has a completely new property in development:

“Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we aren’t stopping there. While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.”

The news comes  in the wake of the announcement that Bioware co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka have decided to move on and retire from the company.

Fans of Mass Effect 3 have been asking for a chance to return to Omega and take back the station from Cerberus and the Reapers. No word yet on whether this mission will be set after the events of Mass Effect 3 but we’ll keep you posted as we get more information.

Looking forward to more Mass Effect from Bioware? What do you think the new game they’re working on will be about? Start your speculating in the comments below!

    Bioware will need to fight to get me back to spend my money on them anymore, especially with Borderlands 2 on Friday.

    They gave us the extended cut to curb our dissapointment in the ending. Much like a DVD would have an extended version of a movie. Movie’s sometimes offer alternate endings as well. We know that they never intended on the “Indoctrination Theory” but through their mistakes I believe the fans came up with an “alternate” ending that is very interesting and could lead to alot more hours of gameplay if handled correctly. I like these additional DLC’s but I already finsihed the game, I would love to see an alternate ending like this before they move on and I would be willing to pay for this DLC just, like the sidequests they have always offered.

    Im playing masseffect 1 for the 11th time (5 differentt characters) and im wonder why the stepped so far away from it in two and three? I mean 60 lvls and you had toactually play the game multiple times to unlock everything including achievements that gave out in game bonuses and unlockable picture packs for your profile, the game had so many important decisions throughout the game and the exploration in me1 was amazing, the citadel alone was huge and you were rewarded for you exploration with next quests and lore and we cant forget about landing on planets right? I mean yeah it was somewhat a pain to travel for an hour just to explore the intire planet but still I feel like it added so much more to the game. Me1 gave the player a real option at choice, bring that back me

    The enxtended cut renewed my faith in bioware not many gaming companies would go out of the way like that for the fans like they did. I’m a huge Mass Effect fan and have all the DLC’s frome “bring down the sky” to “Leviathan” and am looking forward to going back to Omega. As far as Dragon Age is concerned I don’t know I mean Origins was awesome and DA2 was terrible so I would be very reluctant to buy DA3. It makes me estatic that Casey Hudson is working to put out a new Mass Effect game and I would think they would put the new game sometime in the future after the reaper destruction and all your squadmates are long dead except for maybe Liara.It would be awesome if they did something like DA Origins did and pick a race (Krogan, Salarian, Asari, Quarian, Turian).This new gaming universe they are working on it would have to be something totally different so not to compete with Dragon Age or Mass Effect.

    I’m what u called a silent fan of mass effect series. I found the mass effect series more than just a game. It is series with feelings,love,compassion,friendship and leadership.As a leader commander Shepard is perfect. His style of thinking,doing the right helped me many times in my personal life. This is my first comment in this page. i’ll be very glad if bioware made another dlc to keep shepard alive. Because after all he done for the galaxy i think he deserves to live to see his dream came true-a galaxy free of the reaper threat.The omega dlc will be fantastic.i’ve also playe from ases and the leviathan dlc.

    Looking forward to the Omega DLC, but not so much a new Mass Effect game. The universe is definitely expansive but the series just wouldn’t be the same without Commander Shep (and using him in a new game after the events of ME3 would just COMPLETELY invalidate the player’s choices throughout the previous games). I think the trilogy format was just right – there’s only so much you can do with the material before it becomes tired and overused.

  • GGirl

    I never played the original ending, and I’m glad I waited. I got the extended endings and LOVED my ME3 experience! I can’t wait for new DLC and anything that keeps me in the ME universe!

    Yeah, I’ll Buy it, I went in to ME as I did with any series, to have minimal expectations for the ending. And I Loved Every second of Each game. I am happy to continue playing and fighting.

  • Liz

    i agree! I would love to get a DLC where Shepard lives. not that i’m complaining about the extendet cut dlc, but i know many of the mass effect fans want Shep to live, but another part like the current endings extendet cut and all, but that is why it should be a DLC so the people that want shep to live can get it.

    but i’m really excited about the Omega DLC! hope there are many more DLCs to come! ^-^
