Mass Effect 3 Earth Multiplayer DLC Coming Next Week
We all know that freedom isn’t free. It costs folks like you and me, plus one dollar and five cents. However, it turns out that the fight for freedom is free. Or, at least, the lame multiplayer parts of it that don’t really do anything to enhance the story or contribute meaningfully to your final outcomes, despite claims to the contrary that the War Readiness system is totally integral.
The slate of upcoming releases on Xbox Live has been updated, and among them is EA and BioWare’s next DLC pack for Mass Effect 3, the Mass Effect 3: Earth Multiplayer Expansion. The update confirms the expansion will launch July 17. “Earth” will reportedly contain three new maps, three new weapons, and six new classes, and absolutely no impact on the outcome of the single player campaign whatsoever. But it’s free, so at least EA isn’t making you pay for content whose only purpose is to keep people stuck on Origin. And at least it wasn’t removed from the disc at the last minute.
Will you be playing? And as a side question, I’m curious: How many of you have experienced any impact on your single player campaign by playing multiplayer? Let us know in comments.
