Mass Effect 2: Arrival has just popped up on the Xbox Live Marketplace today, meaning that you can finally bridge the gap between the second chapter and the impending sequel, as the Reapers threaten to invade Earth in time for Mass Effect 3.

In the launch trailer for Arrival, you'll see that humanity is under threat of extinction, and only Shepard stands in the way of the complete annihilation of mankind. So, you'll need to gather all of your resolve, have a chat with Admiral Hackett and get to work rescuing the doctor with information on the impending Reaper invasion.

Check out the launch trailer for Mass Effect 2: Arrival below, then prepare for the arrival as the Reapers prepare to strike in time for Mass Effect 3, which is scheduled for release this autumn.

You can add Mass Effect 2: Arrival to your download queue now for 560 Microsoft Points.

yeah as of 12:30pm GMT it wasnt on the UK marketplace, was hoping to que it up for download for when i get abck in 3 hours time but guess it means having to wait that bit longer, isnt mass effect DLC always later? much like borderlands and skate DLC was around 6pm GMT or even after that

Last night, I kept jumping out of Gears of War 2 pre-game lobby after every match just to see if the DLC was posted up already for downloan on the Dashboard. Bought a 4000MP card just to get this DLC.

Downloading it as I type this. Yay!

Looks awesome loved the trailer. Queued up, I really should *cough* go home now, not feeling *cough*hack* well...

For 560 when Shadow Broker was 800 and awesome, wonder about it's length....BUT WHO CARES? It's more reason to replay ME2!! :)

I shall test myself to see how long I can go without downloading this. Hopefully I can last til Mass Effect 3 comes out, I don't fancy going insane from yet another inevitable cliffhanger.

Such a good DLC! I don't think it's better than Lair of the Shadow Broker but it's a great addition to the story

Added it to the queue. This is a great reason to dust off the game.

Read your review and it seems like just the DLC I could expect from ME. Shadow Broker was decent enough, but this is usually what we're getting for ME when opposed to DA. I love both, but was always unsure why they can make such great pieces for DA and not ME. Either way, trailer makes it look like a fucking trip. They should make us pay for trailer and not actual DLC LOL!

Is it just me, or does this seem like it should be the tutorial in ME3? I mean, what better way to introduce the new mechanics (because you know there will be some) than by having Shepard witness the Arrival of the Reapers?
