Mass Effect DLC sneaks onto Live

With more and more info creeping out about the ever elusive and long promised downloadable content for the first Mass Effect game, we knew something was up. And surprise surprise, the DLC has quietly become available on Xbox Live and is now available for download for 400 MS Points. Well done, Spidey sense.

The 264MB download will offer 2-3 hours worth of gameplay across 13 combat scenarios on a top-secret Alliance space station. But, like with the first DLC, there’s a little catch — you have to have achieved Spectre status in the game. Meaning if you’re sporting a new Gamertag for some reason or have deleted the save game, there’s a few hours that need to be put into the game before you can take the Normandy and cruise to the location this DLC takes place at.
