Mass Effect 3 owners can now access a new DLC pack, as of April 11th, the Resurgence Pack.

This DLC is available for free via Origin, Xbox LIVE and PSN and adds two new maps to the multiplayer Galaxy at War system, six new unlockable characters with previously unplayable races (the Geth and Batarian), new weapons and new consumables.

Below is a complete list of features added in the new DLC:

Two New Action-Packed Maps – Take the battle to Firebase Condor, a warzone outpost located on one of Palaven’s moons and Firebase Hydra, an old abandoned quarian colony which has since been converted into a critical power facility. Each map represents a crucial asset in the overall fight against the Reapers.

Six Powerful New Unlockable Characters – Assume the role of new characters for each class, including the Asari Justicar Adept, Krogan Battlemaster Vanguard and characters from new playable races with the Batarian Soldier, Batarian Sentinel, Geth Engineer and Geth Infiltrator.

Lethal New Weapons – Obliterate wave after wave of enemies by unlocking the Striker Assault Rifle, Kishock Harpoon Gun and Geth Plasma SMG.

New Consumables – Cash in your credits to purchase reinforcement packs that could include the following new consumables:
Strength Enhancer – Applies a melee damage boost for one mission
Targeting VI – Applies a headshot damage bonus for one mission
Stabilization Module – Stabilises weapons while firing and moving for one mission
Shield Power Cells – Shortens the length of time shields take to begin recharging for one mission


A further free DLC pack will be heading to the three platforms this summer, aptly named “Extended Cut”, which adds “additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes” to the end of Mass Effect 3. Most people will agree when I say that the ending of Mass Effect 3 was disappointing at best. With these two DLC packs heading to to the three platforms, for free, what are your thoughts on the matter? How was the ending for you? Will the Extended Cut DLC be enough for you to want to play through the ending, at least, again or do you just feel that the game was rushed to store shelves?

Feel free to leave your comments and thoughts on the matter below.
