EA’s confirmed a March 29 launch for the final Mass Effect 2 DLC, Arrival. first reported on the news, but EA UK has now confirmed it.

The DLC, which will launch on PC, 360 and PS3, sees Shepard being sent to the “border of the galaxy” to rescue a female undercover agent that might have evidence for an upcoming Reaper invasion.

Sound familiar?

Admiral Hackett, who is voiced by Lance Henriksen, will also return to play a “major” role.

“All year, we have been extremely honored and humbled by the reception we have received for Mass Effect 2 from players around the world, including our post release DLC,” said series producer, Casey Hudson.

“Mass Effect: Arrival is an exciting extension to Mass Effect 2 and will show players just how close the Reapers are to returning and completing their deadly harvest.”

The DLC is the final pack for Mass Effect 2 before this holiday’s release of Mass Effect 3. It’ll launch for 560 BioWare/MS points on PC and 360. It’ll be £5.49 on PSN.

There’s two new screens below. BioWare’s been teasing the screens all week on its Facebook page, the most recent coming last night.

    I assume as it’s at 560 points it’ll probably only last an hour?

    You can yeah, no need to start a new game, you can go back and do all the sidequests and DLC once you finish the game.

    Backing up Hunam’s point, I reckon the 560MSP price tag on this content defines how long it will be. Overlord and Kasumi barely lasted an hour at the same price. I’m all for welcoming more content for Mass Effect 2, but I reckon this thrill ride will be short.
