After chatting up BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka during GamesCom, VG247 has learned that the newly unveiled PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 will have the game's post-release DLC integrated on the discÂ and will sport some kind of introductory experience for first-time Mass Effect players.
One of the things weâ€™re doing is that weâ€™re bringing a lot of the post-release downloadable content and will integrate it into the experience, so that PS3 fans can check that out and play it,â€ he said.
While confirming the inclusion of an introductory segment for the PS3 SKU, Muzyka was cagey on specifics, refusing to confirm whether or not new gameplay is to be included over the 360 and PS3 version.
â€œWeâ€™re making sure thereâ€™s a really seamless introduction to the world of Mass Effect, for players that havenâ€™t experienced it before,â€ he said.
â€œSo even though itâ€™s Mass Effect 2 specifically, weâ€™re making sured thereâ€™s a nice introduction experience, that provides the back-story and the things that have happened up to that point in the universe, and makes it a really seamless introduction.â€
He added: â€œWe havenâ€™t revealed what that is yet. Itâ€™ll be something that provides a good introduction and provides a lot of the back-story and introduces you well to the story-arc, and kind of makes you feel like youâ€™re part of it all. And then you can jump right into the action in Mass Effect 2.â€
