Bioware is set to release a second DLC for Mass Effect. The theme? Something the game desperately needed. Not more choices, not some backstory for the Reapers, not more than one map per dungeon type, not the ability to sodomize anything, but Fight Club. No, really.
"We had something in Mass Effect 1 which we didn't have the time and we didn't think we would do well enough, which is a fight club arena," said principal lead designer Preston Watamaniuk in the video.
