Posted on the Official Mass Effect 2 site is some news regarding more DLC for there seemingly never ending tale of Shepard Vs the Collectors. Alternate Appearance Pack 2 will this time allow Miranda, Grunt and Tali some new digs to sport throughout their journeys of the Galaxy. Pretty...awesome, eh?..  
Least if they have the same amount of versatility as the alternate appearance pack 1 did, the costumes will in fact give them a new look, instead of a quick colour palette. But even still, I wouldn't of pegged them to release any more tid bit DLCs when there's the DLC to bridge the gap for ME2 - ME3 they promised us. 
 
Ah well. I imagine it's more intended for PS3 players who haven't had over a year to completely dry out their Mass Effect 2 experience. Released on February 8th, no pricing as of yet. Blah.

This isn't a fighting game so I'm not sure how they think costume packs coming out years after everyone beat the game is going to make any money.

Yep! 
 
And for people wanting more substantial DLC ... this doesn't mean it isn't coming!

I'm with you there. Bought everything so far and I've still got one more playthrough (Engineer class, only one left I haven't completed it with yet) in the runnin' before I completely shelve ME2 until the ME3 linked DLC arrives.

Only interesting bit about that one is Miranda looking like a proper Cerberus soldier but that's about it.
Still bothers me that you can't control headpieces. Some of the pack look awesome but the stupid coolshades and crap ruins it.

Didnt they say no ME2 DLC until the precursor one they're doing for Mass Effect 3 or was I imagining that?

They've definitely got some large DLC to pull ME2 towards ME3 planned, though I don't think they swore off some smaller pieces until then.

I don't mind them releasing DLC for ME2 as long as its DLC that I don't want to buy, so this is great.

They should release shirtless Jacob as DLC ^^ They already have that texture after all (as seen in the love scene)

I can't say it's the kind of thing I'd sink money into buying but I guess it's a nice little bonus for those who want it.

Which is why I can't get too mad at EA for doing it, if people are crazy enough to fork over money for some costumes then more power to them. I'll continue to not buy them, ever.

Personally I bought costume pack 1 without regrets.  Jack was no longer wearing her ridiculous breast-thong (even her alt costume had the outline of it), I didn't have to watch Thane's eyes during his stupid stream-of-consciousness flashbacks, and Garrus fixed his wrecked armor, which were all specific complaints I had about the character design even before I knew a costume pack was coming.  It was like Bioware had listened to complaints and fixed them!  I'm glad I bought it and when I play, all three of them wear the costumes I bought.   
 
That said, this pack is different.  Miranda's attire is a bit more realistic for her role, I guess (though armored like that, I'd expect her to use bigger guns), but aside from palette I don't immediately the improvements to Grunt and Tali (who really didn't need them, anyway).  I guess what I'm saying is they already fixed the character design issues that existed, aside from Miranda's face, so this one I'll pass on.

appearance pack is not even partially DLC. you guys misunderstand what Bioware said.  the DLC what we expect is that the connection to ME 3 just like shadow broker. as far as I know, there is still one major DLC we have. but they didn't mention small DLC like appearance pack which won't be coming at all. plus, we will get terminus armor and weapon after Feb, 23rd (well, it won't be free though). because this promo for PS 3 will be expired after Feb. 23rd. until then PS 3 users can download it for free. so when Bioware said DLC, it's the major one. not small one. again, we have one more left.

I think Miranda's is nosa'bad. Grunt's, though, looks like he's got tooth brushs covering his eyes. Now that ain't Krogan, yo. I would of hoped they'd give him one of the massive Battle Master armour suits with the ridiculously huge shoulder pads that looks like something out of WoW. Tali's is barely distinguishable from her original outfits. That fucking mask! Dx

Haha! How crazy would it be if that was how they revealed her face? A DLC costume pack.

Be hilarious if they released that ME2 meme of Wrex's face being behind her mask as a costume. Surely that exists as a mod in the PC version??

I think I'll be taking a break from Mass Effect for a little while. I don't want to oversaturate myself on ME related content before ME3 hits.

They've stated before that they do in fact know what they look like behind the masks. The designs are there and I think its inevitable they'll reveal one of Mass Effects best kept secrets. I'm looking forward to the outroar it'll inevitably create too when it happens, should she not look how people envisioned they would look ;P

I personally have to say I'm all for these alternate appearance packs. They're only 150 Microsoft Points and add some variety into how the squad members look. Seeing as I bought everything elsethat came out for ME2 and DA:O I'll get this too. I'm personally hoping they release two more packs so that we get alternate costumes for every squad member. Although one of them would be a little weird since they would be costumes for characters you might not have (Kasumi and Zaeed). 
 
I also agree that this most likely has no bearing on the promised major DLC pack to bridge ME2 and ME3. Making some new outfits for characters is not nearly as time and manpower intensive as an entire new DLC pack.

If these were free or included in the more substantial DLC, they'd be great. 
But who would pay for these?

I don't think they should unmask Tali. It would only disappoint most people since we have a picture of her in our head and she would probably look different from that. The way I see it I like her enough already, seeing her wouldn't make me like her more, but it has a fairly large risk of doing the opposite. After all she is an alien, for all we know she could look like a cross between a Salarian and a Krogan.

Not to mention her figure resembles something almost insect like. Won't keep my curiosity at bay, though, and I'm definitely on the side of wanting whatever's under that mask unveiled!

 Ah well. I imagine it's more intended for PS3 players who haven't had over a year to completely dry out their Mass Effect 2 experience.    

Good point. Still's lame content.
