Commander Shepard to get final send off in Mass Effect 3: Citadel

We have reached the final chapter in the Saga of Commander Shepard. Mass Effect 3: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3: Citadel will be the final DLC to conclude the long journey of the Mass Effect protagonist that took us on a wild ride around the galaxy.

Mass Effect 3: Reckoning will be available for download on February 26, and will be free to those who own Mass Effect 3, as long as you download the content within a year (offer expires 2/26/14). The DLC offers up new characters, weapons and upgrades for you to play with in the multiplayer mode.

The single player campaign ends with Mass Effect 3: Citadel, in which BioWare and EA have deemed it “one final, sentimental journey with Commander Shepard and their squad”. I can feel the tears welling up in my eyes! The final journey will have players setting off to explore and discover new locations, but also giving you the opportunity to reconnect with some of your favorite characters from the Mass Effect series. Citadel will be available for download on March 5 for $14.99 or 1200 MS Points.

“The team has poured heart and soul into Mass Effect 3: Reckoningand Mass Effect 3: Citadel. As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. “We have always been humbled and driven by the passion of our fans for the Mass Effect trilogy. We hope fans will enjoy spending more time with some of their favorite characters — we have certainly enjoyed spending time creating them. We’re excited to release this final sendoff for the trilogy and move forward into the future of the Mass Effect universe.”
