Mass Effect 2 DLC Will Lead Into Mass Effect 3

Mass Effect 2’s introductory revelation that Shepard died when the Normandy was destroyed by a Collector ship was earthshaking. No warning was given the iconic commando would be suffering such a terrible fate. We may not be receiving such a harsh curveball with Mass Effect 3, considering BioWare is planning to bridge the story between Mass Effect 2 and 3 with DLC.

BioWare will be unleashing DLC entitled The Overlord this June, which had Shepard checking out a Cerberus facility packed with hybrid A.I. (which no doubt will try to kill him at some point).

"We have a bunch of packs that are in the works right now," lead producer Casey Hudson told VideoGamer.

"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."

For those praying for Mass Effect 3 news as early as this E3, Hudson warned, "It probably won't be for quite a few months that we talk about Mass Effect 3.”
