Mass Effect 2 PS3 Freebie Content Clarified

Addressing the official forums, BioWare’s Jesse Houston confirmed a few details about the upcoming PlayStation 3 release of Mass Effect 2.  Correcting a translation error in an earlier interview, Houston confirmed that all content currently available for 360/PC will be available on PS3.  Of particular note is that most of the substantial DLC content to date – Lair of the Shadow Broker, Kasumi: Stolen Memory, and Overlord - will be included for free.  As with other platforms, retail copies will also permit access to the Cerberus network and its content.

Unique to the PS3 release is the interactive comic, of which few details are currently known.  However, Houston mentioned that it would allow players “to be faced with some of the major choices which will have consequences your Mass Effect universe.”  It was specified that the comic would initially be exclusive to the PS3, given the first game did not appear on the platform.

The second, and probably more interesting announcement, is that new DLC will be available for the game come tomorrow. Called Overlord, it adds five new areas to the game, as well as two new achievements. There wasn’t much in the way of further details, but the content will put players back 560 points, either in Microsoft or Bioware’s Internet Funbucks, depending on which platform you’re on.
