Mass Effect 2 launching with day one DLC?

BioWare is planning on kicking off Mass Effect 2‘s downloadable content avalanche on the day the game launches or shortly thereafter, Norweigan paper DagBlaget reports. Apparently items like armor, weapons, and even a new planet and a new ally will be available — not unlike the day one DLC for Dragon Age: Origins.

BioWare has long said they’re taking DLC very seriously with the second game, much like they are with Origins, and worked in plans to offer it early in the development process, allowing them to release new content in many shapes and sizes which essentially the entire development team will work on.
