Mass Effect 3 ‘From Ashes’ DLC info leaks, BioWare confirms

A new listing over on the Xbox Live Marketplace popped up earlier today for an unannounced piece of Mass Effect 3 DLC, dubbed “From Ashes”, priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Shortly after the listing went live, Microsoft promptly took it back down again.

The description of the DLC in the apparently accidental listing said that ‘From Ashes’ allows you to pick up an all new companion for your squad. Revealing the race of said companion would be a bit of a spoiler, but you can find out more in the screencap at the bottom of the post.

Shortly after Microsoft published and promptly pulled the Mass Effect 3 “From Ashes” listing, BioWare Associate Producer Michael Gamble took to the developer’s forums to confirm that the listing is indeed accurate.

Gamble wrote:
