New Mass Effect 2 Weapons Pack Will Precede "Broker"

Astute Mass Effect fans noticed that, in the screens accompanying news of the upcoming extension "The Lair of the Shadow Broker," Shepard's packing two weapons currently unavailable. BioWare's confirmed a new weapons pack is coming, earlier than this next DLC.

BioWare's Jarrett Lee took to the forums to confirm what people were seeing was authentic. "They are in fact part of a different pack that will be released prior to Lair of the Shadowbroker - more details coming very soon. While this was simply intended to tease them I can see how it could be misleading, so I must apologise for that."

That said, "Shadow Broker" does contain "some *really* cool stuff we haven't revealed yet," Lee said. "And actually the very coolest part of the DLC (imho) will be something we absolutely won't reveal in the marketing or PR, to avoid spoiling it. I think most of you will find it to be our most satisfying DLC release yet for ME2."

    just got to hope my 700 points covers both the shadow broker and the weapon pack....

      You might be 20 points short - small DLC is usually 160 points, and larger packs 560. Or they may make the Shadow Broker one 800, if it's large enough and they think they can get away with it.

    Is the super uber secret going to be co-op? Given they were shopping around for a co-op programmer recently.

    I'm yet to pick up any ME2 DLC and I seriously don;t know why! Its my fave game of 2010 so far, along with RDR.
    I've only got the free DLC and still completing my Insane Playthrough.

    I may wait til i've finished that to purchase anymore DLC and then get this Shadow Broker and the other DLCs that offer more missions - i'm not that interested in buying weapon packs personally.

    I still want an expansion pack with heaps of new content. I still believe a Shadow Broker storyline is best suited for a retail release - like as part of ME3 - but it even deserves an expansion pack. Something bigger than a DLC, but oh well. Perhaps release a retail version with ALL DLC so far, plus some new content for release... I hope ME3 adds more RPG elements. Like levelling up and exploring more after the storyline.

      The ME2 DLC has been just as disappointing as the main game was for me.

      They're all standalone missions that really contribute nothing to the game at large...and are really only there for XP, Resources and the like. Sure the end of Overlord was cool...and the casing the mansion with Kasumi was alright.

      But they've really added nothing. I would've rathered waiting till now for any DLC and gotten something substantial like Awakening for ME2 that actually added something.

      But yeah..while it was an okay game, it was massive let down for me. I only hope they can redeem themselves with ME3.

    I keep on putting off re-playing ME 2 till they've released all the DLC, then I want to go through and play 1 and 2 back to back, but yeah. They keep anouncing more, and it keeps looking awesome.
