Mass Effect 3 to Feature Multiplayer Modes

Cue cries of “RUINED FOREVER!”

Australian magazine PC Powerplay is reporting that Mass Effect 3 will feature multiplayer modes. While this has been rumored for some time, it took quite a while to confirm. It seems that (for good reason) it will only be for the combat portions of the game (as three dialogue wheels interrupting each other would probably get old fast – Mass Effect 3 is still going to have dialogue, right?).

I’m fairly indifferent to this, myself – I don’t particularly see the point (except maybe for EA to push Origin), as I prefer having control over the whole squad. but I’m sure some people will like this announcement. For some though, this may seem like BioWare is trying to make the game more of a shooter (as if it wasn’t enough of one already). Only time will tell if this is the best thing since sliced bread or just another option no one ever clicks.

BioWare’s Casey Hudson has said on the matter:

“Yes, co-op MP missions for [Mass Effect 3]: they’re real, and they’re spectacular. Rest assured it’s nothing of what you’ve feared. More soon…”

Thanks for the reassurance. But to paraphrase Han Solo, “I can fear quite a lot.”
