Daily News - 11th October 2011 - Mass Effect 3 Gets Co-op

Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer rumours Come True!

On a slow news day, Mass Effect 3 comes out on top! As we learn that the rumblings that started last week after an African game store had a leaflet declaring the game had multiplayer, are actually true. Apparently the game's multiplayer will be all co-op, with 4 co-op missions and a campaign "bonus" called Galaxy At War, in which a team of 4 (each player with their own unique class, weapons and abilities) will become a mini strike force, liberating worlds that are key to the war against the Reapers. Doing so will affect the "Galactic Readiness", effectively making it more likely you will receive the best ending to the game (I imagine). Ofcourse, Bioware say it is entirely possible to get the best possible ending to the saga without having to touch the co-op, which is a massive relief. It seems as though the multiplayer won't even have you play as Shepard at all, nor any of the crew of the Normandy, as Bioware had this to say on their official forums:

"In multiplayer, players will create custom characters to fight on different and unique fronts in the war. This will include the ability to play as favorites like Turians, Krogans, Asari and more… each with their own unique set of abilities."

I'll be honest with you here, I'm fucking foaming at the mouth to get my hands on Mass Effect 3. As far as I'm concerned the more ways there are to play that game the better, and if you're telling me I can play as a Mother. Fucking. Krogan... Then I'm gonna need some fresh boxer shorts, because holy FUCK.
