Mass Effect 2 DLC : Firewalker and Kasumi

It seems Bioware is releasing a duo of DLC in the near future for its sci-fi RPG Mass Effect 2. The first pack “Firewalker” will be released on March 23rd. Firewalker introduces us to the Hammerhead hovercraft tank. You get to go across 5 additional levels in this beast describe as a“..heavy assault vehicle that hovers over the battlefield at up to 120 kilometers per hour and features a guided missile system ensuring accuracy even during aggressive maneuvering.” One thing to note for players who experienced vehicle combat in the first game in the Mako is that the new Hammerhead is a hovercraft. This was done in an effort to combat the strange glitching and hiccups on terrain that plagued the first game.

For those who bought the game new either on the Xbox 360 and PC, you’ll receive this for free over the Cerberus Network. If not you might have to dish out $15 bucks if you want to enjoy this great new future into an already incredible game.

Last but not least is the “Kasumi’s Stolen Memory” premium pack. It will cost 560 MicroSoft points for Xbox 360 ($7) or 560 Bioware points for the PC. The pack will contain an additional hour and a half of gameplay, a new squad member, a “Locust” SMG, and a flash-bang grenade you can toss around. The DLC revolves around Kasumi, a thief who’s loyalty you can gain by helping her go undercover against a corrupted art collector. While there is no concrete release date, expect it somewhere around early April. And yes, even Cerberus Network members will have to pay for this one.
