Mass Effect 2‘s final piece of downloadable content, “Arrival,” goes live on March 29. On a quest to save a doctor (who uncovered a Reaper artifact) kidnapped by batarians, Shepard won’t have his/her team to rely on this time around.

BioWare producer Jesse Houston describes the content as a “side-quest, ultimately,” but “also kind of an epilogue”. Players can choose to undertake the mission anytime as long as they’ve completed the Horizon mission.

As a solo mission, players must make use of cover and be on their best defense. The level design for Arrival features more instances of stealth than found in the main game. According to Joystiq, there are at least two fights in the content that can be skipped by sneaking around the environment.

For a more detailed look at the upcoming content, read Joystiq’s preview. For a few new screenshots, check out the gallery.

    On one hand, its an interesting idea. On the other, this saves alot of time and money on all the different team member dialogues that could have happened….

    how many DLC’s does Mass Effect 2 have? it seems they announced Mass Effect 3 too early(kinda like DA2) hope it won’t suffer the same fate.
