BioWare announced the latest DLC for Mass Effect 2, Lair of the Shadow Broker, earlier this week, but one eagle-eyed fan has spotted something no-one else did: new weapons.

After the fan pointed out the new weapons which were clearly on show in the latest screens, BioWare’s Jarrett Lee made a post on the games board saying more info on the new weapons pack DLC will be announced very soon.

“As Christina [Norman of BioWare] tweeted, some of the new guns you are seeing in those screens are not in the Lair of the Shadow Broker pack. They are in fact part of a different pack that will be released prior to Lair of the Shadowbroker – more details coming very soon. While this was simply intended to tease them I can see how it could be misleading, so I must apologize for that,” said Jarrett.

He did go on to say though, that while the weapons pack wasn’t actually part of Lair of the Shadow Broker, there is plenty more to look forward to.

“Lair of the Shadow Broker does, however, contain some *really* cool stuff we haven’t revealed yet so stay tuned for more details as we head into August. And actually the very coolest part of the DLC (imho) will be something we absolutely won’t reveal in the marketing or PR, to avoid spoiling it. I think most of you will find it to be our most satisfying DLC release yet for ME2.

There is not much else to go on for now, but there we go, looks like you will be entering the Lair of the Shadow Broker with some new toys.

No date yet for the DLC.
