A recent post by Nathalie Edelmann, a moderator at BioWare’s Social Network website, has revealed new details about the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2. The text she provides is in German, but a quick Google translate helps clear things up.

According to Edelmann, producer Casey Hudson’s revealed exactly what PlayStation 3 users can expect for their Mass Effect 1 refresher:

  • An interactive comic drawn by Dark Horse Comics will tell the story of the first Mass Effect before Mass Effect 2 begins. It’ll allow the player to make various choices that they’d normally make if they were able to play the first game.
  • The three already-released downloadable content — Kasumi: Stolen Memory, Overlord, and Lair of the Shadow Broker — will be included on disc.
  • A code allowing players to access all content published to date on the Cerberus Network will come bundled with the game.
  • A new mission offering about six hours of additional playtime will be available to players.

We’re labeling this a rumor for now — until it’s officially confirmed. We’ve dispatched an e-mail to BioWare, to see if we could get an official confirmation.
