RUMOR: Mass Effect 3 may actually have Multiplayer. Fans weep tears of blood.



Picture taken from Gamebrood.com

A friend of mine just linked me to this. It overrides the last thing Casey Hudson told us before about ME3 having no Multiplayer.

To be honest, I don't want Mass Effect 3 with multiplayer. it serves no purpose on a Single Player, Story-driven game. No purpose at all. Then again...it might prove itself as a good thing. Or not.


Quoting from GalaxyNextDoor.com:

Ray Muzyka has officially changed BioWare’s stance on Mass Effect 3 having multiplayer to “we’re not saying, but stay tuned.”

For months we’ve heard rumors that Mass Effect 3 was going to get the multiplayer treatment and it looks like it really is happening.


There's also a list of possible features the ME3 Multiplayer would have:

The game will feature a Horde style multiplayer mode with “crap loads” of maps.

It will also have the regular modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag.

The Horde mode will have objectives like Capture The Flag, King of the Hill, and simple shoot-to-kill ‘waves’ as well.

Up to four players can play cooperatively in the Horde mode. Maps are “fairly small” but well designed.

Players can choose from 6 different classes, or use a prebuilt one’s.

There will be a level cap of 60. Some of the enemies were confirmed as well: Geth, Marauders, Husks, and a new enemy type called Brutes.

The game will also feature a ‘multiplayer store’. The store will carry upgrades for weapons, etc. and other items.

Players will be able to buy said upgrades and items by earning in-game money based on their performance in the multiplayer.

I'd say I buy games for 95% multiplayer and 5% single player...but this just doesn't fit... I hope they don't tbh :/ I can imagine it being rushed and generally tarnishing the name.

i hope it stays SP as well.

As long as the don't sacrifice the single player experience in any way... I say go for it(even though I'll never play it). I'm more worry about how much of the game is going to be BS paid DLC.

I'm just hoping they implement it well, and don't rush anything. I'd rather a patch to do it later than an underdeveloped version now.

It's actually kind of weird to hear people say they'd rather a game be just single player.

I don't see how they could pull it off...

I could see it working as a co-op campaign actually. It would be weird, but hear me out. You just have 2 other people controlling your two squad mates. They probably couldn't do much, but it would be interesting to see if they could incorporate quests that would need 3 people to do 3 different things at the same time or something, you could add a whole new level of strategy to it.
