Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Update and Video Preview

Bioware recently detailed Mass Effect 3’s new multiplayer in a post on the Bioware Forum putting most worries, concerning the integrity of the single player experience, to rest.

“Under the direction of Casey Hudson and other team veterans, both studios make contributions to both the single player and multiplayer modes in Mass Effect 3. Rest assured that no compromises were made to either of these modes in the development of Mass Effect 3” said community coordinator Chris Priestly. 

The post also reports that the multiplayer can, if you choose, have a direct effect on your single player campaign through something  Bioware calls “Galaxy at War System.”  This gives players another way to “have control of their game experience” by “impacting their galactic readiness level” in the final fight against the reapers in the single player campaign.  However Priestly makes it clear that this new system is completely optional “it is still possible to achieve the optimal, complete ending of the game in Mass Effect 3 through single-player alone.”

Some of this is difficult comprehend since most, if not all of us, haven’t seen this Galaxy at War system in action. Here is a Bioware preview that might help explain.

    I HATE that they integrated the kinect into it. Lol!

    I feel like Mass Effect is stepping up to try and take some of the Halo online market.
