New Achievements Added to Mass Effect

#1 Posted by Bass (692 posts) -

I was just browsing through my achievements for Mass Effect since I have been finally playing through it the past few days here, and I noticed the achievement cap jumped from 1050 to 1200. So I'm guessing this is confirmation that the newest DLC for Mass Effect is soon on the way.  
Here are the achievements:  
Undisputed - Complete Ahern's survival mission  - 50 pts.
New Sheriff in Town - Take first place in any combat scenario on Pinnacle Station - 50 pts.
Best of the Best - Take first place in 12 combat scenarios on Pinnacle Station - 50 pts.

Awesome, I'd love some new Mass Effect content.

Yeah, I saw this. That is crazy!! I did not realize they were still making more DLC for the game but I guess they are. It is pretty awesome because I have not played that game in a long time and I wouldn't mind playing it again.

it could be that they are also maybe trying to bridge the two stories together even more.  Either way, awesome news!

Perfect timing. I'm nearing the end of my second playthrough (trying to get to 60 but most of the side missions are so repetitive) and this would really make it more interesting.

I've done all the side missions on my second playthrough and just about to steal the normandy back, think il need this DLC if I want to reach level 60 in this playthrough, so I'm quite happy.
 
Edit: Is it just me or do these combat scenarios mean infinate XP?

This is great timing for me! I just kind of missed Mass Effect for some reason, but saw it on Games On Demand, looked at the $30 price tag, drove to Best Buy, got it for $20, and have been playing the SHIT out of it since. I have been grinding through though, stopping at every planet in every system and getting the minerals, artifacts, and side missions along the way. ANYwhoo, this is rad.

I just noticed that yesterday when I was trying to figure out how the hell I only have a B on that game when I've played through three times, beaten it on Hardcore and Insane, and leveled up to 60.

Crap, now im going to have to install mass effect again and play through it for the 5th time.

Am I the only person who has finished Mass Effect once? The thought of doing the long beginning and the repetitive side quests over again really put a damper on my enthusiasm for that game. But I will probably beat it again anyways because Mass Effect 2 is coming out.
