Speculating on the Citadel DLC release date.

Post by TheSuperAwesome_383 on Mon Jan 14, 2013 8:35 pm

So, the DLC team have been working on the "Citadel" DLC since at least August, probably earlier, and now that Omega's out of the way there's nothing more to distract them, right?

Well, interesting couple of tweets recently from Bioware peeps, particularly the chief level designer:

Would seem to suggest that the DLC is at some advanced stage, with levels undergoing QA testing.
Possible release in March or so?

Seems more and more like it'll be the last one too. Unless they've been working on a big one at the same time as the smaller ones.

I wonder if the keepers will be involved in this citadel DLC? That added one in EC seems to just be there to remind you they exist.

You better believe there'll be another outfit/weapon pack DLC, but yeah, this is 99% likely the final ("Project X") DLC ;)

Some people expect we'll get some kind of Citadel DLC and the "Mega DLC". (You know, 9 writers, tearjerker music etc.)

I'm really not so sure it's two DLCs. I think it's just one, to be honest.

Whatever we're getting, we have no freaking idea what it is.

No leaks whatsoever this time.

The lack of leaks, I find highly suspicious.

Especially because everything has been leaked up until now and every leak turned out to be true, even Collectors in multiplayer.

There were some leaks about Omega that didn't turn out to be true (about cloning Protheans to make Collectors and such), but that leak always did look fake to most of us. The paste-bin DLC schedule.

Was just reading through those tweets. What's this "Rabbit Hole" they speak of?

Implications... intriguing.

Is there any reason to think it's going to be a "Citadel" DLC? I thought the "Citadel" data that was mined from Leviathan was used in Omega?

I have to agree, at this point.
With the assumption of a 12 month DLC cycle and the usual spacing between content release, well - I guess there just doesn't seem to be as much time until March, as I used to think... :9
(...even considering the delegation of Omega.)

I think I'm actually glad about that. If there really is only one more DLC, then it more likely to be a big, worthwhile one, and hopefully the one we've all been waiting for. Or if it turns out to be another pointless side mission, then at least I can draw a line under Mass Effect, shrug, and get on with my life.

Release on the one-year anniversary of ME3, anyone? Chocolate cake? With strawberries?

Tehre may be another multiplayer DLC to come yet as well. Possibly.

Don't forget that Arrival came out 14 months after ME2, so the one year anniversary might not be the cutoff.

True, they also got delayed because of the EC.

And I really hope we'll get another multiplayer DLC.

I'm still not convinced we're getting anything Citadel-related just because of that stuff that was found in Leviathan.

I doubt it. Player numbers have fallen far enough that it's not really worth doing.

What could the possibly add to MP now? They're clearly scraping the bottom of the barrel with volus.

Especially if we consider how the schedule had to be changed due to EC.

I figure that we'll have the official DLC announcement before the end of this month, with release following either in late February or early March.

Quite possibly - a lot of devs talking about Bug-testing, usually that takes 1-2 weeks, followed by ~3 weeks for sony/microsoft to vet everything before it's allowed onto their networks.

I think they're aiming for February. March is a bit crowded with goodies already.
