Over the weekend, a retail listing seemed to indicate Mass Effect would be getting some new downloadable content in the near future. Today, a BioWare announcement has confirmed it.

Sadly, it's only confirmed that an announcement on it will be here by Friday, and says nothing about what it actually is. Sounds like the weekend leak has has BioWare's PR team scrambling to get some decent screenshots together before they rush out some details.

Here's hoping the long wait between drinks means it's something a little meatier than the game's only other piece of DLC, Bring Down The Sky.
