Mass Effect DLC Coming

Bioware isn't letting the (made-up) controversy about their "sex simulator" Mass Effect slow them down. The first downloadable content will be available starting March 10th for 400 Microsoft Points($5).

The new content is called "Bring Down the Sky." It is a new explorable world which features an extremist group of Batarians. Apparently, these Batarians have highjacked an asteroid and are trying to hit a colonized planet with it. (Don't tell Fox News about the new race. They'll just think it's someone else to have sex with.)

The new content adds about 90 minutes of gameplay and one Gamerscore achievement worth 50 points. I'm looking forward to it!

Did they mention if you can do that mission at any point in the game once you buy it? Or do you have to be at a certain point in the game to play it?

Good question. I also wish they would tell what other DLC can be expected because I'd like to get it all at once.

Wouldn't it be awesome if Bioware put a graphic, hardcore sex scene in the game now? Who'd believe the wolf-crying press now?

I think that would be hilarious, but make it where you had to pay for it to show that parents pay for their kids to watch porn, so they are okay with it.

They haven't mentioned when it's playable(I've definitely looked). I would assume that it would be available early and you have to do it before you get to the end part.

And as for future DLC, all they've said is that more is planned.

It's been released that the new mission will be available as soon as you control the spaceship and can access the galatic map. So between that point and the ending part.

If you don't have any saves in that time, you basically have to start over and get past the first part.
