Posted on May 16, 2012, Ross Lincoln Yet Another Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer DLC Discovered.
Perhaps the biggest disappointment about Mass Effect 3, besides the terrible ending that retroactively ruined an entire story, is the fact that BioWare, or perhaps EA, has simply gone all-in on pretending that the series is a Sci Fi Call of Duty, instead of a robust single player experience with 5 years of history… as a robust single player experience.
Say what you will about the explosion of DLC in gaming over the last few years, but at least Mass Effect 2′s DLC packs enhanced and expanded the actual game that players purchased. Mass Effect 3′s DLC, with the exception of the From Ashes day one pack that brazenly asked players to pretend they hadn’t removed a critical aspect of the story just to nick 10 extra bucks from their customers, has been nothing but bullsh*t multiplayer packets.
And that trend continues unabated. While we await the DLC that supposedly will fix the ending that everyone hates, (but will almost certainly just expand on it), BioWare/EA continues to issue multiplayer DLC packs for Mass Effect 3. And the latest has been spotted in China. Via Kotaku, a description of the newest multiplayer DLC, called ‘Rebellion’ apparently popped up on Sony’s Hong Kong site. Here’s a description they quoted:
The Rebellion Multiplayer Expansion opens two new fronts against the Reapers: Firebase Jade’s jungle reservoir and Firebase Goddess on Thessia. In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons as well as equipment, consumables, and six new classes: Quarian Engineer and Infiltrator, Vorcha Soldier and Sentinel, Phoenix Adept and Vanguard. The battle continues – hold the line!
Unfortunately, that verbiage, or at least the English language version, has been taken down. “Sorry, we couldn’t find the page you’re looking for” now graces the top of the page, and a search of the site yield’s no results. Sounds to us like they accidentally spilled the beans a bit early.
So, there you go. Still no ending DLC. But plenty of useless multiplayer on the way.
