The biggest DLC pack for one of 2012s hottest games will not be releasing on the Wii U.
BioWare dropped the bombshell on their Twitter feed. The Omega DLC is scheduled to launch on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC November 27, but no mention of a Wii U release. So, a fan asked BioWare about a Wii U release date, but the answer wasn’t good, “Unfortunately it will not be available for Wii U,” replied BioWare.
This is surely a huge blow for the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3, which was believed to be the definitive version of the game. Only the Extended Ending, From Ashes, Resurgence, Rebellion and Earth packs are included in the game at no extra charge. However, a release for Omega, Leviathan, Retaliation and weapon packs down the line wouldn’t be out of the question. When asked whether the missing DLC would be released eventually BioWare responded, “Never say never. :)”
BioWare also reiterated that there aren’t any current plans to bring Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 to the Wii U. “We don’t have anything to announce at this time, but we’ll definitely keep you posted if something comes up!” Players will have to compensate with two interactive comics that allow players to make decisions present in the first two games. Still, this hardly makes up for the fact that the Mass Effect Trilogy set released for Xbox 360 and PC earlier in November and launches on PS3 early December.
Mass Effect 3 for Wii U is out now in North America, ahead of its release in Europe alongside the consoles launch on November 30.
