SPOILERS FOR THE LEVIATHAN DLC:
Set before Mass Effect 3's ending, this DLC will centre on a traitorous Reaper named Leviathan.
Leviathan has been separated from the rest of the Reaper forces after killing one of its own kind.
Shepard meets Leviathan after being sent to rescue scientist Ann Brynson. She's being held at the Reaper-indoctrinated mining facility that Leviathan controls.
The DLC may give more information on the Reapers' origins, briefly alluded to in Mass Effect 3's ending.
"So the Reapers did not fully exterminate their creators," one line of dialogue states. "That suggests they are fallible, even on large or long-term scales."
Leviathan can join Shepard's fight against the other Reapers, presumably becoming a War Asset.
