Mass Effect 3‘s next DLC add-on has been teased by BioWare. On the company’s official forums, series designer Jos Hendriks revealed that the next DLC features eight writers, bringing together writers from all of the previous DLC packs”It’s all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every ME3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved (which would include both Patrick Weekes and John Dombrow),” Hendriks said.
The team also includes Mac Walters, who was lead writer from the main Mass Effect 3 story. Later, Mass Effect 3 composer Sam Hulick tweeted that he is also working on new music for the DLC, and that he expects it to be an emotional experience.
“Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears,” Hulick said BioWare has not officially announced the next Mass Effect 3 DLC, but hacked files from the previous expansions suggest it will involve or take place on the Citadel. That same hacked file method had previously revealed the names Leviathan and Omega before those expansions were announced.
