BioWare has announced the next DLC installment for Mass Effect 3, titled "Leviathan," and released more information about the upcoming Wii U edition of the game.

Here's the official description for "Leviathan:"

"Something lurks in the dark corners of space, something powerful enough to kill a Reaper. Shepard must discover the most closely guarded secret in the galaxy before the Reapers silence it forever. Discover more about the origins of the Reapers as you race across the galaxy to find the Leviathan. Unravel the dark history of the Reaper Race before it is too late. Coming later this summer there is no war, only the harvest.

"Taking place during the events of Mass Effect 3, players will be thrust into the darkest corners of space where they will hunt a mysterious being rumored to be powerful enough to destroy a Reaper. As they race against time, they will begin to unravel the secret of the Leviathan. Explore uncharted systems and new areas on the Citadel, interact with brand new characters, unlock the AT-12 Raider shotgun and M-55 Argus Assault Rifle and discover more about the mysterious history of the Reapers. Available on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Cost is $10 or 800 Microsoft points."

In addition, there's a new single-player weapon set known as the "Firefight Pack" available August 7 on all three systems. At $2 (160 Microsoft points), it features "two powerful new weapons and five bonus weapons" to use in the campaign.

As far as Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U goes, BioWare's revealed that it'll feature new controls, bonus DLC (including the Extended Cut ending), and "an Interactive back story covering previous events in the Mass Effect universe."
