Mass Effect 2 will be getting one final downloadable content pack entitled “Arrival”, bridging the gap for Mass Effect 3. Chris Priestly announced the details to “Arrival”:

“In Mass Effect: Arrival, Commander Shepard is sent to the edge of the galaxy to rescue an undercover operative who may have evidence of an imminent Reaper invasion that has been looming since the very beginning of the series.” Admiral Hackett (as voiced by Lance Henriksen) will play a “prominent role” throughout the downloadable content.

“Arrival” is set for release on March 29 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC and will cost $7 (560 Microsoft Points / 560 Bioware Points) while Mass Effect 3 is set for release “sometime this holiday season”.
