Rumor ‘MASS EFFECT 3’ DLC To Revolve Around Rogue Reaper Named Leviathan. Whatevs.

The Mass Effect 3: Unfucked Ending Edition was pretty fucking disappointing. I didn’t expect much, and that’s exactly what I was given. Now that the ending to one of my favorite franchises has been left indubitably awash in a sea of rotting ass, I’m not so certain I’m excited for any sort of DLC. Yet I’ll buy it. Of course I will.


Mass Effect 3 could get a new piece of downloadable content revolving around a Reaper named Leviathan, according to files extracted by a BioWare forum poster yesterday.

(Potential spoilers for potential Mass Effect 3 DLC follow.)

According to the files, which were extracted from yesterday’s “Extended Cut” DLC and dumped on Pastebin, you’ll have to rescue a scientist from a colony that is under the control of a Reaper named Leviathan. Leviathan has apparently broken free from the rest of the Reapers to do his own thing.

One purported line reads: “So a Reaper goes rogue and kills one of its own. That’s what we’re looking at here, right?”

Another: “If Leviathan is a defector—a Reaper that broke away from the others—then it is also a traitor.”

I contacted BioWare for comment this morning and received this statement: “We don’t comment on rumors or speculation. There will be news about more DLC coming soon…”

…You sold? At all?
