Mass Effect' DLC Requires A Spaceship, A Couple Of Hours Of Player Progress

Stephen Totilo from MTV Multiplayer writes:

"The "Bring Down The Sky" pack announced on Wednesday and slated for release on March 10 offers 90 minutes worth of bonus interplanetary exploration and combat. But if you saved the game where I did, you'll have to spend a couple of hours reach a point of the game from which you can access it."

What a whinge!

Who'd of thought you'd need a spaceship to explore the new planets!!!

kwicksandz3757d ago

in oblivion if you went to the DLC areas without a high level charactet you will get owned, same as if you tried to got the burning crusade without a 60 in WoW.

a "couple of hours" of a great game flys by anyway!

just a heads up for all our 360 peeps planing on buying this :D

As for the oblivion dlc doesn't the game lvl the monsters with your character?

Lew_Ijgee3757d ago

How much are these 90 minutes going to cost gamers?

fjtorres3757d ago

Works out to US$5 or whatever 400MSPs cost in your country. And its not quite 90 minutes; it is 90 minutes of story *minimum*. If it is anything like the rest of the game, it will have replay value with each character/career you have, so its a really somewhere between 3-9 extra hours of gameplay. Maybe more if it brings new weapons and armor that change the rest of the game...

I've never played Mass Effect, about how long does it actually take to get to the point in the game this guy is talking about. He's making it sound like he has to play 20 more hours.

Jdoki3757d ago

Not long. Can't recall exactly, but it's fairly early in the game. Probably 2-3 hours in...

Depends how many side quests you start (although you can always do these a little later if you are eager to get to the DLC stuff).

wageslave3757d ago

If you start a new game, and ignore everything except the goal of getting your ship (like, dont run around the space station and begin a bunch of quests) you could be on the ship in probably 30minutes...

ASSASSYN 36o3756d ago

Not even 2-3 hours if you skip all the side missions which you can come back to you can do it in 1 hour.

ukilnme3757d ago

I'm only an hour into the game so this will work out for me.

wageslave3757d ago

Do you have your ship yet? Let us know how long it took you...

ukilnme3757d ago

I'm still on the first planet a little bit after the girl joined my team. The workers just told us about the alien attack. I am in the middle of home renovations so it may be a while before I get back to playing again.
