One of the locations missing from Mass Effect 3
was Omega, the hive of scum and villainy you first visited to pick up a few friends and make a few enemies in Mass Effect 2
. There were dialogue options that hinted at a plan to retake the space station from Cerberus but nothing in the actual game itself.
Enterprising fans have found a few hints that Omega won't stay occupied for long.
As fans of the comics know Cerberus took Omega in order to guard the Omega 4 relay and force out Aria. But that was it: In fact you had to read the comics to get the full story.
Fans took apart the new Firefight DLC
to browse the code and found a few interesting hints. Several weapon modifications that aren't yet active in the game are tagged with the "Omg" location used in Mass Effect 2 to note that a specific item could be found on Omega.
Of course this is far from an official announcement but this same method was used to discover the upcoming Levithan DLC was on the way
. And it seems odd to spend so much time setting up what would seem to be a fairly key mission without acting on it. We'll keep you posted as BioWare updates its plans.
