Speaking in the latest GTTV, project director for Mass Effect 2 Casey Hudson has revealed there will be DLC support for the game.
The first Mass Effect only received two DLC packs since it’s release in 2007, Bring Down the Sky in 2008 and Pinnacle Station only this year. But it seems ME2 will be supported much better this time in terms of DLC.
“As part of trying to build [Mass Effect 1], as ambitious as it was, one of the things we werent able to do technically was to have the support in the game itself for certain kinds of downloadable content, so either it had to be a huge pack or nothing essentially was the issue,” said Hudson.
“So now, we’ve gone through and made sure that it’s technically possible to do a whole range of different kinds of downloads. Once we’re done working on Mass Effect 2, pretty much the whole team switches into working on really cool downloadable content. And then, we like to listen what fan feedback is for where do you want to go, what kind of things do you want to see.”
The game is out on January 23rd in the US and January 27th in the UK for the Xbox 360.
