Mass Effect 3’s incoming Omega DLC pack will deliver more single-player content. It’s not out for a while but gamers have datamined the full game disc to reveal possible plot spoilers for the DLC. SPOILER ALERT. You have been warned.

OXM reports that the Omega plot summary was found in text files within the Mass Effect 3 disc. Read on for SPOILERS.

Aria tells you that Omega is now under a blockade from Cerberus. Since a direct attack didn’t work, Cerberus is now trying to starve Omega into submission by blockading supply ships coming in through the regular Omega relay. The level’s appearance will change to reflect this – the Afterlife has gone quiet, the music is off, the flashing lights are gone, maybe a soup kitchen has taken over the dance floor. Aria requests that you steal into the blockade and board the command ship. Take down the blockade so Omega can be resupplied.

As punishment for breaking the neutrality pact, Cerberus launches an attack against Omega. The enemy is attempting to destroy Omega’s shields, which will allow asteroids and meteors to smash into the station. You must repel the assault and ensure the shield remain operational.

The ‘Omega’ title does indeed refer to Omega Station, the floating space station from Mass Effect 2. Queen bee Aria has lost control of the station to Cerberus and calls on Shepard – we’re guessing rather rudely – for help in taking it back. Mass Effect 2 DLC character Zaeed Massani is alluded to being an enemy at some point too.

There you have it. Are you happy to be returning to Omega? Let us know below.
