Mass Effect 3 Gets Online Cooperative Multiplayer
Well, it's about time.
After plenty of rumors and continuous streams of evidence, BioWare confirmed at its Twitter page that yes, there will indeed be a multiplayer option in Mass Effect 3.
This multiplayer will come in the form of co-op missions, as later revealed at BioWare executive producer Casey Hudson's Twitter feed. Interestingly enough, he felt the need to assuage any hurt feelings and placate those who don't like the idea of multiplayer joining the franchise:
"Yes, co-op MP missions for #ME3: they're real, and they're spectacular. Rest assured it's nothing of what you've feared. More soon..."
Mass Effect 3 is slated to hit store shelves on March 6, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Fans have made it clear in the past: they're plenty happy with another epic, memorable single-player campaign. But these days, most games require multiplayer, and provided those co-op missions are done correctly, they should add to the longevity of an already in-depth production.
