BioWare released the first downloadable content for its award-winning epic saga, Mass Effect. The content is called Bring Down the Sky, and can be downloaded from Xbox Live Marketplace for 400 MS points. Once downloaded, players can access it through the Galaxy Map onboard the Normandy from either a new game or a previous saved game.
Bring Down the Sky takes place in the Asgard system where a batarian extremist group has hijacked a mobile asteroid station, setting it on a collision course with the nearby colony world of Terra Nova. It is up to players, taking the role of Commander Shepard, to save millions of innocent civilians before the asteroid makes its deadly contact.
The content pack features a new race, the batarians, and a whole new world to explore. It has been designed for approximately 90 minutes of game time and boasts new achievements to unlock.
