Mass Effect 2 LogoAfter both a PlayStation 3 Trophy update and later a series of teaser images emerged suggesting it was forthcoming, Bioware have stepped forward to officially confirm the details of the much anticipated Mass Effect 2: Arrival downloadable content. This will be the final piece of DLC that will be produced for the second game in the series, as the third game is well on its way in development. The DLC will be made available for all platforms upon which the game has been released and will launch on March 29th. The title update will also incorporate three new Achievements for Xbox 360 & PC owners, or Trophies for those who play on PlayStation 3.

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. Returning and playing a prominent role inMass Effect: Arrival is fan favorite Admiral Hackett, who is voiced by legendary science-fiction actor Lance Henriksen (Alien, Terminator).
