BioWare today announced that Bring Down the Sky will be available for PC gamers to download free of charge when Mass Effect for the PC releases on May 28.
Fully optimized for the PC, “Bring Down the Sky” is the first in a series of
planned downloadable content that will further expand the Mass Effect story and
universe. It includes a new uncharted world that introduces the deadly Batarian
alien race, approximately 90 minutes of new gameplay and an original soundtrack.
Batarian extremists have hijacked a mobile asteroid station in the Asgard
system, setting it on a collision course with the nearby colony world of Terra
Nova. Only Commander Shepard can save the millions of innocent civilians before
the asteroid completes its deadly descent.
Originally released for the Xbox 360, “Bring Down the Sky” has received
critical acclaim as one of the “must have” downloadable expansion packs. Mass
Effect has also received critical acclaim throughout the world with more than 80
awards including Console Game of the Year and Role-Playing Game of the Year.
The “Bring Down the Sky” downloadable content for PC will be available at the
launch of Mass Effect for the PC, and will be free of charge to registered
BioWare community members.
