Next Mass Effect 3 DLC has 'all hands on deck'

Mass Effect 3 has already had quite a few expansions, and the most recent title, "Omega," had a sense of finality to it. But BioWare isn't quite done telling Shepard stories yet, as the company apparently has a large chunk of its writing staff hard at work on the next one.

"It's all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every Mass Effect 3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved," wrote BioWare's Jos Hendriks on the official forum (via Eurogamer). "If my math skills are correct [that means] eight."

That eight-person writing team is said to include lead writer Mac Walters. The Edmonton team itself is responsible for the Mass Effect Trilogy, just released yesterday (check out Andrew's field report).

Tweets have also revealed the involvement of chief composer Sam Hulick, and the voice actors behind Joker (Seth Green) and Kaiden (Raphael Sbarge). Whatever BioWare has up its sleeve, it has a larger writing staff and returning cast than previous pieces of DLC. That could indicate a grand finale, or setting the stage for whatever is coming next to the series.
