First paid Mass Effect 2 DLC next month

The first paid entry to the growing lineup of Mass Effect 2 downloadable content is set to arrive early next month for both the Xbox 360 and PC versions, Joystiq has learned.

The content, titled Kasumi’s Stolen Memory, will add a female thief to Shepard’s selection of comrades and sends players on ‘a secretive mission of recovery requiring a suave disguise and a run-in with an influential and predictably corrupt art collector’.

A “Locust” SMG, a flash-bang grenade loyalty power and a new Achievement are packed in as well.

The pricing for the hour and a half long content is still under “internal discussion” at BioWare. A release date, however, has been settled on: April 6.
