New Mass Effect 2 DLC Arrives?

PlayStation 3 Mass Effect 2 players may have uncovered BioWare's next DLC for the game.

Getting a patch for ME 2 on the system reveals three new trophies that have been added for a possible DLC pack entitled Arrival. The trophies are The Ultimate Sacrifice, Last Stand, and Covert Action. The last one may give a clue about the DLC. It charges you to: "Rescue Dr. Amanda Kenson without attracting hostile attention."

Here's the entry on Dr. Kenson from Cerberus Daily News:

Historians and astronomers alike are abuzz tonight over a new paper published by Dr. Amanda Kenson of the University of Arcturus. Her team claims that by testing the dust trapped in the gravity wells around a mass relay, and comparing its composition to that of dust clouds in the same system, scientists can create a timeline of when the relay passed through the dust. Her conclusion? “Only a small fraction of the mass effect relays date back 50,000 years,” she writes, “The majority are far older, indicating they were created by a species predating even the Protheans.” Dr. Aurana T’Meles of the University of Serrice met the information with skepticism: “While Dr. Kenson’s methods appear sound, the asari tried a similar procedure centuries ago and discounted it. What civilization could have spanned the galaxy for not thousands, but millions of years? If this were the case, we should have found mountains of evidence of their passing. Where is this species now?”
