Collector faction - Praetorian, Scion, Abomination, Trooper, and Captain
New faction units - Cerberus Dragoon, Geth Drones (ugh).
New character load outs. Some turian ones have been detailed and it looks like jet packs!? But more feasibly they are probably some sort of jump jet, originally used for locomotion and stability in zero-g environments. More to be detailed later.
EDIT - Chris Priestly posted a few extra details on the BSN.

Everything below is one man's opinion and own analysis at attempts to reconcile certain aspects that did not sit well with him as presented by the fans or BioWare.
Let's start with the simple one. Disproving IT in one sentence.
"Warning: Indoctrinated presence detected." Uttered by a VI able to detect indoctrination and only goes off when Kai Leng enters the scene. If Shepard was indoctrinated then it wouldn't have even wasted time talking to him. At any time. There is no arguing this fact as to do so would completely nullify any argument you would have for Shepard being indoctrinated.

I tried. I really did. But issue upon issue has finally just destroyed my spirit.
First it was face imports. No big deal, I was able to make better faces than the updated patch import anyway.

Next I lost all of my bonus powers. A bit of a bummer but I was working on a new playthrough to prep for DLC and it gave me a chance to start a bonus power guide.
Now I boot up today after no problems yesterday and what greets me? The black screen glitch. Which is fixable, as long as I do the work and don't connect to the internet. No idea why that is an issue.
So I went from being super exc…Read more >
As of this writing, the "cause" has raised $44,192.34 with 1,850 contributors. This boils down to about $23.89 donated per person.
Why is this funny? Because if this "works" (being whether or not they had planned an extended ending DLC from the start) and they decide to charge for it, there will be a huge backlash.
We look at a community of people who some, not all, some are more than willing to spend $25 to ASK for a better ending but the moment you ask them to pay for it, no matter the amount, will throw a tantrum.
We as gamers and as a community have our priorities completely backwards. In some ways would it be wrong for BioWare to charge for a "finished" ending? Sure. But it is a business and they have the right to make money from their p…Read more >
