Disambiguous This article is about the downloadable content, scenario, and tactics. For information about the station itself, see Pinnacle Station (location).
Pinnacle Station is the second downloadable content pack for Mass Effect, and was developed by Demiurge Studios.[1] It was released on August 25, 2009 for 400 MS points on Xbox Live or 400 BioWare Points on the PC. The pack adds a unique training facility to the Galaxy Map, the Pinnacle Station. It was included in the PC edition of the Mass Effect Trilogy; the PlayStation 3 port does not include Pinnacle Station due to the source files being corrupted.[2]

Pinnacle Station is one of two DLC packs released for Mass Effect. The other is Bring Down the Sky.


Test the limits of your combat prowess aboard a remote, top-secret Alliance space station. Do you have what it takes to hold the top spot among the best of the best? This module includes a new land-able space station, 13 exciting combat scenarios, and approximately 2-3 hours of game play.

Compete in a series of high-stakes battle simulations to earn amazing weapons and armor that can be used in the main game. Unlock new achievements, and even win ownership of a dedicated base of operations for Commander Shepard. Challenge modes include Survival, Time Attack, Hunt and Capture and even a scenario modeled after the First Contact War.


Known Bugs

On the Xbox 360, sometimes Pinnacle Station is not accessible with Bring Down the Sky installed. This can occur when Bring Down the Sky is installed from the Platinum Hits bonus disc. The solution is as follows:

  • Delete Pinnacle Station and Bring Down the Sky
  • Clear system cache
  • Download Pinnacle Station to hard-drive
  • Re-install Bring Down the Sky from Bonus Disc

This should allow you to use both DLC packs properly.
