Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC Release Date: New Screenshot Better Reveals Mass Effect's First Female Turian (See Her Here)

Last week Bioware finally revealed to us Mass Effect players what a Turian female looks like via screenshots from Mass Effect 3's upcoming Omega downloadable content.

The three screenshots showed her from a slight distance and she was hooded. But Bioware has posted a new image of the female Turian on its Facebook page. The posted image shows her full face.

The female Turian is named Nyreen Kandros, and she is the valiant Turian leader of the Talon mercenary group. Kandros is currently fighting against the forces of the Illusive Man to free the enslaved people of Omega.

The new DLC will feature a new Cerberus-manipulated Reaper called the Adjutant and four new missions.

GameSpot recently got the chance to sit down with Bioware executive producer, Mike Gamble and see the new DLC. The footage shows off Aria and Commander Shepard taking on a unit of Cerberus troops at the hangar bay of Omega. Aria has a power called "Biotic Boss," which is new to the Mass Effect series. Check out the gameplay footage here.

"Omega is one of our harder DLCs," Gamble said. "So it kind of goes without question that a lot of people who are fans of the game have finished the game and are playing a new game class or something like that and because of that we have upped the difficulty considerable for Omega. Part of that is based on different creature that you fight the new characters and the new enemies but it's also based on how many we throw at you at sometime."

The new DLC will cost $14.99 on PC and the PlayStation 3 and 1200 Microsoft Points on the Xbox Live. Omega will be is one of the largest downloadable content files released for the Mass Effect game series.

It is also the most expensive single-player content released in the franchise's history if you don't include Mass Effect 2's Cerberus Network pass. Mass Effect PlayStation 3 fans in Europe will have to wait one extra day, as the DLC will release on Nov. 28.
