Mass Effect 3 Rumored to Have a Multiplayer Mode
Officially, Bioware has denied that Mass Effect 3 will have a multiplayer mode. However, there’s reason to believe that they might be misleading fans in an attempt to dramatically reveal the multiplayer closer to the release date. There’s a couple pieces of evidence floating around to support this theory.
First of all, Mass Effect 3′s assistant producer Billy Buskell has tweeted about a “secret feature” in Mass Effect 3. It would make sense for Bioware to deny multiplayer if they’re trying to keep it a secret. Secondly, Bioware is planning to reveal a “killer new feature” in the next issue of Xbox World 360 on October 25th. And most recently, a South African retailer had an advertisement for Mass Effect 3 that listed “Online Multiplayer Pass” as one of the benefits of ordering the collector’s edition (Ad pictured below).
So, could we be seeing a multiplayer mode in the new Mass Effect game? I definitely wouldn’t discount the possibility. We’ll just have to wait and see.
