And Now, Those Mass Effect 3 ‘Earth DLC’ Deets

Now that we know the next Mass Effect 3 multiplayer DLC pack – Earth – will be out on Tuesday, July 17th, it might be a good time to find out precisely what there is to look forward to. Assuming, of course, you’re looking forward to it. PC Gamer notes the official description as follows:

“Mass Effect 3: Earth: The fighting is fiercest when it’s your home at stake! Mass Effect 3: Earth adds mods, gear, and new maps for Rio, Vancouver, and London. It features three new weapons: Piranha assault shotgun, Acolyte pistol and Typhoon light machine gun. Six new human N7 classes are also available: Destroyer, Paladin, Demolisher, Slayer, Shadow and Fury!”

Meanwhile, Over at Something Awful, they’ve sifted through the Mass Effect 3 game files and have discovered images and descriptions of various assets from “Earth”. Here’s a rundown of the new classes, courtesy of PC Gamer:

N7 Destroyer – Soldier, according to leaked information: “The Destroyer’s T5-V Battlesuit gives these strong-but-slow soldiers mech-like protection. Driven by eezo-assisted actuators, these frontline troopers carry heavy weapons onto the battlefield.”

Abilities: Multi-Frag Grenade, Missile Launcher, Devastator Mode

N7 Fury – Adept, according to leaked information: “Fury operatives use implants to fuel biotics and their incredible movement speed. These operatives wind an unpredictable path on the battlefield, moving in and out of combat before returning to unleash a sweeping biotic attack on their unsuspecting targets.”

Abilities: Throw, Annihilation Field, Dark Channel

N7 Shadow – Infiltrator, according to leaked information: “Shadow infiltrators use implants to dramatically improve agility, making them slippery combatants on the battlefield. Their monomolecular blades are a menace from cover and close range.”

Abilities: Tactical Cloak, Shadow Strike, Electric Slash

N7 Demolisher – Engineer, according to leaked information: “The Demolisher uses grenades to attack at range and to terrorize the battlefield. Demolishers can also create a supply pylon that stocks allies with an nending reserve of grenades and thermal reloads.”

Abilities: Homing Grenade, Arc Grenade, Supply Pylon

N7 Paladin – Sentinel, according to leaked information: “The Paladin carries a powerful omni-shield onto the battlefield to block enemy fire. The Paladin also uses the shield as a heavy-melee weapon that, when modified with incindiery or cryo upgrades, creates a devastating combination attack.”

Ability: Snap Freeze, Incinerate, Energy Drain

N7 Slayer – Vanguard, according to leaked information: “Slayers use implants to dramatically improve mobility. Their dizzying sword attacks can hit multiple opponents, and the Slayer’s ability to slip fire makes them hard to pin down on the battielfield.”

Abilities: Phase Disruptor, Biotic Charge, Biotic Slash

All the people posting comments above me are retarded crying babies with no lives! I say this even though there’s nobody else who has posted before me! Furthermore, everyone else who posts after me is also a whiny little child unless they insult anyone with any criticism, however valid, of Mass Effect 3! In fact, Ross Lincoln is a troll because he represents Mass Effect 3 and its fans in an objective way instead of toeing the industry line of games as art and people wanting everything to be happy all the time, even though both of these points are vacuous and have been debunked an infinite amount of times on multiple websites. I for one am ashamed that Gamefront continues not to suck up to Bioware and EA or to launch personal attacks on those with a different opinion from the mainstream press, which is why I keep visiting the site and posting this same mindless drivel ad nauseum and will continue to do so until the sun expires. Go me! Kthxbai XD

…. ignoring that last comment…

The first two actually reminded me of quarians at first with the hoods they ave on. The rest of them kinda look cerberus with an N7 logo on hem.

I might grab it since it’s free anyways, but holy cow how much multiplayer dlc are they planning on doing with this anyways?

You guys got the wrong picture for the Soldier. Just pointing that out.

As for the Adept, she’s wearing a similar outfit to Kasumi. Heck all of the outfits were based off of something. The Vanguard for example is wearing a similar outfit to Kai Leng.

This might be the best DLC pack EVER

ing biotic slashes, and a banshee like class.

All these new DLC packs seem pretty OP to me. Maybe Bioware is trying to push people up into Silver matches, but these additions seem overpowered to me.

Don’t want it, wont touch it. Better things to do like,……….. well, anything.

Ha a troll personify me with the first comment! I’m becoming famous!

But i’m right on everything everyone are still crying babies who dont know what the word redeem means. And Bioware did that with the Extended Cut.

To bad the skinner box gamble that is the equipment pacts will make it so that you can almost never unlock them.

I opened 64 Spectre pacts {Six-freakin’-four} and I still don’t have the Krogan solider or any of the additional classes from beyond the game’s original launch characters.

I’m just so glad I finally got rid of this game so that I could move on to something not as disappointing.

And i have nothing against Ross Lincoln or his point of view about the game endings itself. My complaints are against the fans who say ”i will never buy or play any future Bioware instalments because they didn’t changed the endings of Mass Effect 3” or ”Dragon Age 2 sucks”. Its not because Bioware failed with the original endings of Mass Effect 3 that means their future games will sucks.

Since they corrected the endings of Mass Effect 3 i feel more in peace with how the story of my Shepard ends and since i loved Dragon Age 2 even if i prefered the first one i’m looking forward for the next instalments of both the Mass Effect and Dragon Age franchise.

We are gamers and when a game is quoted a 7, 8, 9 or 10 by the majority for me they worth being purchased and i dont care who develop the game if the game is realy good. Its not because i feeled raped and depressed by the original endings of Mass Effect 3 i will stop myself playing their games.

Saying i will not play any of their future games just because you hated the endings of Mass Effect 3 extended or not or just because you hated Dragon Age 2 for X reasons is just plain stupid.
