If there was one thing that really sucked about Mass Effect, it was most definitely the tepid and severly disappointing post release support.
For a game with that much scope and critical praise, you can only presume that BioWare had some sort of mild stroke around the time and totally missed what was a golden opportunity to strengthen their brand. Thankfully it appears that this trend won't continue with the sequel, which according to a retailer quiz (a quiz used to get retailers up to speed on certain products) is looking to get a ton of post release support.
According to Destructoid, who received the tip earlier on today, the game is set to receive "planned episodic combat via DLC," weapon and armor packs, new downloadable characters, new downloadable worlds, as well as "full campaign expansions for download."
Furthermore the retailer quiz mentions "periodic updates," which will be delivered via the "Cerberus Network" - Mass Effect 2's unannounced in-game network.
In the words of Terry from Layer Cake, "about fucking time!" I mean seriously!
