    It’s hard to tell if BioWare actually wanted details of its final bit of Mass Effect 2 DLC to get out before the studio announced it, but it’s plain that the studio is embracing the “leak.” On Monday, a screenshot of the content, dubbed “Arrival,” appeared on the game’s official Facebook page. A second image has since been shared with the promise of a third to hit this afternoon if it secures 750,000 impressions. Neither image reveals too much, but I’d imagine those numbers on the latter says something meaningful to someone:

    The word on the street is that Arrival has something to do with Shepard answering a distress call during an Alliance and Batarian Hegemony conflict nestled somewhere in the Viper Nebula. Previous entries on the Cerberus Daily News seemingly back this setting up. 

    Rumor of Arrival and its content arose from the PS3 version of ME2. Once patched, the game teased the content with three mysterious Arrival trophies. The PC version’s “Alternate Appearance Pack 2” DLC also has some details packed within its TLK files. Destructoid has an awesome post with all the contents of the files, but be warned, there are spoilers inside the various dialogue snippets and codex stuff within.

    Since there’s no word on Arrival’s actual existence, I’ve no release date for you. But, if you remember, Cerberus Daily News will end its hiatus for a total of five weeks in 2011, one week of which will “precede a downloadable content” release. If you keep staring at that computer monitor on the game’s main screen, all day, every day, you may just get a heads up before too long.

    Not one to criticize Brad but he should add the other 3 screenshots that were released. As usual it just seems like GB reporting on old news.

    If the Alliance is involved in this mission then I'm expecting this to be where Ashley or Kaiden get involved again with Shepard.

    I'm a Bioware fan so I tend to seriously consider anything as an almost garaunteed purchase when they're releasing stuff. 
     
    I hope it's good, but then why would Bioware's ME team make their last DLC for ME 2 less than stellar? 
    Sure Mass Effect 1's last DLC was not great but that team in specific had yet to learn the lesson of DLC by that stage. 
    Hopefully now they get it. 
    This one should be as epic as the Shadow Broker DLC was! :-) 
    I can't wait for this! And I also get paid again next friday so that makes it even better.

    Sounds like the thing that will bridge the gap between mass effect 2 and 3. You know, Arrival. Of those guys with big space ships. Evil bad guys.

    Yay, I can actually use Legion! I have the PS3 version and I did as much as possible before going to get him, including the DLC, so I basically used him for his loyalty mission and not a lot else.

    I'm nearing the end (or at least I think I am) and yes, if they release more DLC for this game that didn't come on the disc, I'm buying.

    there's so much hype and speculation behind this DLC that I hope it really blows my balls off. I loved Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker, but i'm hoping for something even better than those. And I'd like it to be lengthy -- perhaps the length of Overlord and Shadow Broker combined. They've had enough time to develop it. And I'd totally pay 1200 points for it. I want to give you my money BioWare/EA! So hurry up and release it :P

    Would they really put an event as huge in the Mass Effect story as the arrival of the Reapers in a DLC?  Kinda curious about this one.
