Mass Effect 2 DLC to ‘fill the gap’ between ME2, ME3

The downloadable content released for Mass Effect 2 so far is just an appetizer, BioWare’s Casey Hudson leads to believe.

In a chat with Videogamer, the lead producer said there are plans to fill the gap between the second and third games in the trilogy through hefty amounts of new content, but that in order to do that effectively they first have to figure out what kind of content the users are receptive to.

“We have a bunch of packs that are in the works right now,” Hudson said.

“So, for the time being there’s going to be a continued stream of DLC for people. We’ll start to have packs that’ll tell the story between Mass Effect 2 and 3. But beyond that we kind of have to see how people are responding to what we have and go from there.”

Overlord, the latest DLC announced just a week ago, will arrive next month.

Looking ahead, publisher EA’s COO John Schappert has said that the Mass Effect universe is in for “something far-reaching” in fiscal 2011.
