Upcoming DLC & UGC Mass Effect 3: Citadel

itadel is the last piece of DLC to be released for the Mass Effect trilogy, and that makes us quite sad. Yes we know this series hasn’t been without controversy (most of it centred around the third game and that deflating ‘Starchild’ ending) but Citadel sets a lot of those issues right. BioWare’s history with DLC is mixed, with terrible efforts like Pinnacle Station undoing the good work of excellent content like Lair of the Shadowbroker. Forget all that though, as Citadel is the best add-on content BioWare has created so far.

DLC

PUB: EA DEV: BioWare OUT NOW

This DLC offers more time with the beloved characters that have stuck with you through the series and the writing hits the right notes between silly and selfaware. Mass Effect 3 was too melancholy for our tastes, this DLC busts it down to size.

and the Combine. With Valve doing all they can to ignore the possibility of putting out Half-Life 3, as far as we’re aware, this may be the closest any gamer ever gets to seeing more battles play out post-Episode 2. Sad certainly, but that doesn’t mean this mod isn’t worth tinkering around with. HL2: Wars was originally launched in 2008, but since then the team has been tinkering away, and has recently released their most stable and entertaining build, yet boasting a load of new models. Keep plugging away at it guys, who knows you might even spur Valve into action!
