How To Start The Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC

There's a new singleplayer expansion for Mass Effect 3 called Leviathan out today, but it's not readily apparent how to start it. Here's a tip: after you buy it and download it, check your in-game message terminal. You're looking for the message in the screenshot above.

This may seem obvious, but let's just say that some people wasted a lot of time searching their galaxy map for a new quest marker and went to the Citadel to fruitlessly scan their map for a new person to talk to. Wrong! We've got to check our e-mails.

That the beginning of this Mass Effect DLC is confusing is understandable. BioWare, clearly sick of people complaining about Mass Effect 3 endings, wanted to give people a Mass Effect beginning to grump about. Clearly. That has to be the case.

Anyway, this is how you start it. Thank you to Eurogamer's Tom Phillips for the tip.


    thats how you start basically every side quest. how are people getting confused by this

    If there really is a significant group of people who would "grump about this beginning" then I can understand and welcome developers choosing to ignore fans. Can only lead to great things.

    Funny how basically all the DLC for Mass Effect 2 began the same way. an email in your terminal.

    As someone who never played the DLC for ME2, I couldn't find where to start this DLC straight away. I went to the mission log to start with since that seemed like a no-brainier and after that I searched the map to no avail. I had to grab my iPad to look this up. I forgot about the email terminal since I haven't played the game since it came out.
