Watch Mass Effect 3: Omega Right Here (And Maybe Learn a Couple of Things About It)

BioWare will be livestreaming some of the upcoming Mass Effect 3 downloadable expansion Omega at 1:30 pm ET today. You can watch it in the player embedded below.

While you're getting ready, here a few details about it that you might want to know:

  1. It's a single-player adventure.
  2. It will be accessible to anyone who has gotten past the Palaven's Moon mission.
  3. It involves trying to liberate the Omega station from Cerberus forces.
  4. The player controls Shepard but cannot bring along any of their regular ally characters.
  5. Instead, they'll team with Omega's boss, the ruthless Aria T'Loak, and a mysterious female Turian insurgent who has some sort of history with Aria and seems to have more of a conscience.
  6. It has a lot of combat but will also include some decision-making, according to a BioWare producer who chatted with us about the DLC.
  7. And it won't be Mass Effect 3's final single-player DLC, despite that "Omega" name.

Omega will be out on November 27/28 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. $15. No word on if, how or when it will come to Wii U.
