Forums - Gaming Discussion - Anyone here played Mass Effect 2 and its DLCs?

Tagged games:

So I downloaded Mass Effect 2.

 

I got most of the DLCs and all of the collector's edition DLCs when I bought the game from Steam.

 

I was wondering since I am missing one DLC : The Overlord DLC - would I still be able to play the DLC if I start the game and say I'm halfway through the game? Or is it a DLC that will only work if I am starting a new game :O

 

Just making sure before I spend any more money lol.

I haven't played that specific DLC but the game is the best one in the series.



I can't say how it works on Steam, but in the 360 version, it didn't matter when you got the DLC. Whenever you download it, it will just show up on the world map as a mission. I doubt it will matter on Steam.

That being said, I honestly didn't think the Overlord DC was all that amazing. The game itself is though.



I think I played the Shadow Broker dlc and it didn't matter when I played it if I recall right.



Speaking for all of the DLC, It's designed in such a way that, no matter when you download it, it just becomes part of the regular game. You won't even notice if it's there or not. It's just a natural stand alone section of the game.

It doesn't matter. When you download it, you should get a message on your quest terminal about new quests being available. ME2 was such a fun game and then ME3 happened. Heck i enjoyed that but the more i thought about it, the worse it got. Then i stopped thinking. Win win. 



Thank you guys!

I'll start on ME2 soon!

So excited! I love ME1 so much lol.

Well this one turns more into a 3rd person shooter with rpg elements. Pacing is best in the series. Enjoy!

Yeah I heard and that was a huge downer for me but I'm fine with TPS games. Having RPG elements is a plus.

 

(Even though Borderlands isnt a TPS but a FPS with RPG elements - I enjoyed that too!)

Got the game on PS3 a few years ago and it had almost all of the story DLC on the disc. Game stole a month of my life.
