Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Video has Arrived

Love it or hate it, Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer is a reality. A video of Mass Effect 3′s executive producer, Casey Hudson, discussing the new multiplayer mode has made it’s way on to Youtube and there’s already been an avalanche of dislikes. Casey is doing his best to sell the new mode but hard core fans are afraid that it’s going to hurt the single player experience. To reassure angry players Silva says that “you can absolutely get to the highest level of success in the endgame.”

Mass Effect 3′s multiplayer has it’s fair share of supporters as well. Currently, the Youtube votes are split at about 50/50. Fans of the game are saying that Bioware hasn’t let them down yet and that the outrage at ME3′s multiplayer is premature. What do you think? Is multiplayer an exciting addition to Mass Effect 3 or an abomination that cannot be tolerated? Let us know in the comments.

Options are always nice.

However im not keen on multiplayer ”options” determining my singleplayer experience or rather the end of my singleplayer experince, ultimately in singleplayer it should all come down to what I did, what choises i made not what me and perhaps 3 other random dudes did in the shooting gallery while trying to compete who has the larger epeen by trying to get more kills then everyone else (or some other stupid point system)

So yup consider this the first ”ITS AN ABOMINATION PURGE IT WITH FIRE BEFORE IT SPAWNS MORE HIDEOUS ABOMINATIONS” vote.

Casey doesn’t seem to understand what fans are actually disappointed about (at least in my point of view).

It’s not getting the best ending that I’m worried about. I’m worried that the singleplayer experience itself will not be as exciting as it’s predecessor, ME2. They promised more boss fights, deeper character interactions, more humor, a darker atmosphere, and overall, a more cinematic feel to the game.

In simpler words, they need to focus on telling a good story, not creating a challenging puzzle, that’s priority number 2. Otherwise it will end up being a mass let-down because Bioware didn’t have the balls to tell EA to take their multiplayer mode and cooperatively themselves.

Yes, they need to focus on the story first, but I think people should consider the possibility that they had the talent and resources to construct an excellent story AND a good multiplayer experience. I could be completely wrong here and if I am, I will surely deserve the hell I catch for saying that. I just think it’s a little early to condemn this game just because they added a multiplayer feature.

I’m not mad at this feature at all, because BioWare has never disappointed me yet, I don’t think they will now.

BUT! I think it’d be REALLY, REALLY REALLY REALLY awesome if they did a new game in the ME universe, but co-op, with dialogue options similar to the system in TOR. Imagine, TOR, in the ME universe, and only with 2-4 people. The game would have to be four times as big as ME to allow for four times as many choices, but imagine what an amazing game that would be!

Is the image for this article on the main page actual Bioware artwork for ME3? Because damn, that is one freaky-looking face.
