While looking through the DLC section on xbox.com I happened to stumble across an item that happened to capture my eye, it was only the first piece of dlc that is for the upcoming Sci Fi RPG Mass Effect 3
Warning: Minor spoilers
This is the image showing Mass Effect 3′s first piece of DLC, which was supposed to be released on February 20th according to the post. this DLC will apparantly allow players to “unearth lost secrets from the past” and allow you to recruit a Prothen race.

When Xperience Gaming tried to download the DLC pack, we received an error message saying, “Cannot retrieve information from Xbox LIVE.”
We’ve got straight onto bioware for a comment on this mistake, you will be the first to know when we do so make sure you watch this space.
After checking the official Bioware Blog we have found this:
We’re happy to confirm that Mass Effect 3: From Ashes DLC will be available at launch for all platforms. For those of you who have purchased the N7 Collector’s Edition (including the PC Digital Deluxe Edition), you will get this content at no extra charge. We’ll have a lot more details for you later this week! Stay Tuned! “
Thankfully, this piece of leaked DLC was not a spoiler and was but a piece of DLC which comes with the Mass Effect 3 Collector Edition. So no real threat of a game ruining spoiler. but after even closer inspection at the Bioware forum there is a debate going on as in the Collectors Edition contents it shows that it has:
This exclusive and limited package includes:
• Premium metal case featuring commemorative artwork of both male and female versions of Commander Shepard.
• 70-page hardbound art book featuring hundreds of unique and gorgeous illustrations from the BioWare development team.
• Limited edition Mass Effect comic by Dark Horse Comics, complete with unique cover artwork.
• Join the ranks of the N7 with the premium fabric N7 patch.
• Exclusive 4×6 lithographic print featuring a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork.
• A full collection of in-game content that can’t be found anywhere else!
o N7 Arsenal Pack – Bring the firepower with the N7 Sniper Rifle, Shotgun, SMG, and Pistol.
o Robotic Dog – A faithful sidekick to keep you company on board the Normandy.
o Squadmate Alternate Outfit Pack – New appearances for squad members Ashley, Kaiden, James and Liara.
o N7 Hoodie – For Commander Shepard’s casual days on board the Normandy.
• Relive all the greatest moments of Mass Effect 3 with the digital soundtrack.
• Xbox LIVE Normandy prop for your Avatar. (Available on Xbox 360 version only.)
• Display your initiation in the N7 ranks with a collection of forum and social badges, avatars, and perks.
Therefore was this an actual leak that Bioware decided to cover up? did Micheal Gamble the Bioware associate producer make the decision to hide this mistake as it was to close to release to actually change anything about this, or was it a marketing ploy to add publicity as earlier this week there was also a leak in Mass Effect 3 books.
What do you think? let us know.
