Mass Effect 3 marketing wanders into batshit crazy mode

Mass Effect 3’s upcoming Leviathan DLC is probably the genesis of some very odd happenings in BioWare land.

The BioWare blog is playing host to a strange post from the Alliance News Network:

“Top of the line security, huh? Hmph. I don’t think so! I’ve successfully hacked into the Alliance News Network’s terminal, but this isn’t a safe connection and I can’t stay long. I don’t want to reveal my location on the Citadel and give C-Sec the advantage. I must be heard! Go read about everything that Hackett is trying to cover up! I am Bernard Plim and I speak the truth,” the post reads.

Fans are then directed to something called the Conspiracy Accountability League, which contains just one post – other links return the user to the Mass Effect website.

According to the blog, the Alliance is behind the top-secret Reaper investigation, Task Force Aurora.

“I have tried to contact Admiral Hackett myself, but he won’t return my calls. WHY NOT?! Is it because he’s HIDING SOMETHING? I’m sure that he feels safe on his space station home as we all sit by and watch our friends and families get juiced by the Reapers, but I DON’T and NEITHER SHOULD YOU—we need to DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY. I encourage you to write or send a vid to Admiral Hackett and the Citadel Council demanding them to come clean and TELL US WHAT THEY KNOW!!!!!!”

I have absolutely no idea what this means but Leviathan, Mass Effect 3’s first substantial single-player DLC, arrives on August 28 (or regional cnsole update schedule) for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and apparently delves further into the mystery of the Reapers. Welp. See the Leviathan trailer here.
