Electronic Arts executive John Schappert has revealed to investors that there may be another new Mass Effect title - or expansion, at least - available by the start of next year.

Schappert wouldn't confirm whether he was talking about the third act of the Mass Effect trilogy though and merely alluded to "something far-reaching for Mass Effect" that would be on the way early 2011.

If you plan to play the third game in the series then be sure to keep hold of your savegames too, as Bioware has confirmed that Mass Effect 2 savegames can be carried over to the third game, just as saves from the first can be used in the second.

In other Mass Effect 2 news, Bioware is releasing some more new, free downloadable content to the Cerberus Network today, according to Eurogamer.

The first is a new Cerberus Assault Armour which boosts heavy weapon capacity, shields and health by 10 percent. The second is an M22a Eviscerator Shotgun that is effective at greater ranges that other shotguns.
