Yesterday, the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 hit store shelves as a launch title for the new console. Mass Effect fans hoped that downloadable content available for other platforms would be available on the Wii U eShop, but the series’ official Twitter feed has confirmed that this isn’t the case.
When asked about Mass Effect 3: Omega — a downloadable campaign that centers around liberating the seedy, crime-ridden spacestation from the terrorist group Cerberus — the official account replied, “Unfortunately, it will not be available for Wii U.” A later tweet kept the possibility open, however, telling fans to “never say never,” in regards to future announcements.
The Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 does come with some DLC, however: From Ashes (which includes an extra Prothean party member), the Extended Cut ending, and three multiplayer expansions (Resurgence, Rebellion, and Earth) were bundled with the game.
Eurogamer is also reporting that Leviathan, the first Mass Effect 3 DLC campaign, will not be included in the Wii U version of the game. Leviathan was released earlier this year to somewhat middling reviews. Our own Charles Webb called it “a minor side story that doesn’t really do much to enrich the already expansive universe of the game.”
