According to the official blurb: "Mass Effect 3: Leviathan is the first story-driven, single player DLC to be made available since Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut. Leviathan expands upon the events of Mass Effect 3 with gripping and emotional storytelling, compelling new characters, powerful weapons and unique upgrades.

"Unravel the dark history of the Reaper Race before it is too late. Coming later this summer there is no war, only the harvest."
