Importing Mass Effect 2 DLC to Steam

★★★★★ Newbie

Hi there,

 

I have a Steam account and have Mass Effect 2 on there. Being such a great game I'd like to add to the experience with some DLC but am unsure as to how to import the Bioware site's DLC to my Steam game - any thoughts or answers would be much appreciated!

 

Many thanks

 

Seb

Just download the installers from BSN, put them in the ME2 directory and run the installers.

 

If you can't download the DLCs, register you ME2 Steam keys at the BSN under "My Games" > "Register Game", then you can download them under "My Games" > "Your registered game content".

As said in the other thread:

 

The DLCs for Mass Effect 1 are now included in both the Steam and the Origin version of the game.

 

For Mass Effect 2:

Only the DLCs under "Cerberus Network Downloads:" are free to use. The DLCs under "DLC" musts still be bought beforehand. They will not get authorised in game if you don't own them.

Again. I didn't get the DLCs for ME. And that's why I posted the link. You can download every ME and ME2 DLC on there. That's also why I said syke.

No problem, I just pointed out that this ME2 DLCs:

   Genesis
    Arrival
    Overlord
    Lair of the Shadow Broker
    Kasumi – Stolen Memory
    Firepower Pack
    Aegis Pack
    Equalizer Pack
    Alternate Appearance Pack 1 (Garrus, Thane, Jack)
    Alternate Appearance Pack 2 (Tali, Grunt, Miranda)

 

are not free, they still must be bought before you can use them.

 

Since recently there are also DLC bundles for both ME2 and ME3 available in the Origin Store.

quick Q.

 

i already have ME2 over at steam, but without any dlcs.

 

if just buy ME2 dlc bundle over at origin and download those from the ea support page then install them... will i be fine to play the dlcs?

 

or will there be any complications requiring me to take some more steps whatsoever those may be?

That is a very good question.

 

It was possible to do that as long as BSN was online, but whether it works now, after BSN has been dropped is not clear.

 

If it don't works you may need to redeem the Steam CD key at Origin and reinstall the game with Origin.

Bleh, I'm guessing this mean that I'm losing my saves... Q.Q

Back to ME1, then. After redeeming the keys over at Origin.

No you won't, the saves are compatible and also stored at the same place for both, the Steam and the Origin version of the game.

Edit: Make a backup of the "Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\Save" folder if you have to reinstall the game.

 

But do me a favour and try it first as you originally wanted. No resident ME Hero can test if it works because we all have the DLCs already.
