Mass Effect 3: Reckoning DLC has been leaked after gamers data-mined BioWare’s latest game update.

Eurogamer reports that the Reckoning files were found in a Mass Effect 3 title update patch that rolled out across all formats yesterday. We reported on the update here.

The leak was posted on the Clevernoob forums by user TSA_383, who explained that the Reckoning multiplayer DLC seems to include a new game mode that will use save date from your single-player campaign – specifically your moral choices, as well as you Renegade and Paragon point tally, plus more.

It follows an unearthed Xbox Marketplace descriptor for the Reckoning DLC, which was posted on Reddit recently. It reads:

“The day of reckoning is nigh! The Reckoning Multiplayer Expansion brings six new never before seen co-op story missions to the game and new co-op gameplay modes. It provides four new maps to conquer and hazard variations of the Earth maps.

“It also enables reinforcement packs that offer new kits for the salarians, krogans, humans and volus. In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons (Chakram Launcher, Blood Pack Punisher and Adas Anti-Synthetic Rifle).”

The weapons listed above have been added to single player, but the data-miner has found that they will also make the jump to multiplayer as part of the Reckoning DLC.
