Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker announced

PC News | The valley of the shadow of death.
What an amazing time it is for Mass Effect fans. After revealing that a new comic series was being developed, as well as a fourth novel being written, BioWare has one upped themselves by announcing some new downloadable content for Mass Effect 2 titled Lair of the Shadow Broker.

Lair of the Shadow Broker has Commander Shepard pairing up with Liara T'Soni to take on the mysterious Shadow Broker. Player's may remember that during the events of Mass Effect 2 Liara was attempting to find the location of this enigmatic figure, while the prequel events of the comic series Mass Effect: Redemption showed how Liara fought against the Shadow Broker's minions to retrieve Commander Shepard's body. I guess it's time to even the score.

Those who have been following the saga closely will know that BioWare had previously hinted that this particular DLC pack was in development, but its great to finally get confirmation. A release date has yet to be given, BioWare instead giving us three new screenshots to keep us satisfied.

That last screenshot is totally the one to make the fans go ballistic. Getting Shepard, Tali, Garrus and Liara in a team-up again? Hell yeah!

God I am such a Mass Effect whore and I don't even care. I just want more and more and if it comes in $8 bites then I'll just start separating my cash into little $8 piles right now.

Looks like it will come with three new weapons too. The new heavy pistol which appeared in the Kasumi wallpaper, the Geth shotgun which appeared in the Overlord wallpaper, and a new assault rifle.

A BioWare staffer has posted on the forums regarding the new guns;

Hi everyone,

As Christina tweeted, some of the new guns you are seeing in those screens are not in the Lair of the Shadow Broker pack. They are in fact part of a different pack that will be released prior to Lair of the Shadowbroker - more details coming very soon. While this was simply intended to tease them I can see how it could be misleading, so I must apologize for that.

Lair of the Shadow Broker does, however, contain some *really* cool stuff we haven't revealed yet so stay tuned for more details as we head into August. And actually the very coolest part of the DLC (imho) will be something we absolutely won't reveal in the marketing or PR, to avoid spoiling it. I think most of you will find it to be our most satisfying DLC release yet for ME2.

Best Regards,
