When EA and BioWare released Mass Effect 3 most were interested in the multiplayer component, but didn’t think much of it. The focus was on the conclusion of the trilogy, and the multiplayer seemed like an afterthought. And yet here we are a month after the release of the game, and while people have had mixed feelings regarding the campaign, the multiplayer has been fairly universally praised.
It is also addictive. Incredibly, insanely addictive.
One of the biggest complaints of the multiplayer was just that there wasn’t enough content. With only six maps the game risked growing tedious. Thankfully there have been enough players, options, and things like the sponsored challenges to keep the game fresh, but the new content comes at the perfect time.
On Tuesday, April 10, EA and BioWare will release the “Resurgence Pack” at no cost. The pack will include:
- Two new maps—Firebase Condor, a warzone outpost, and Firebase Hydra, an abandoned Quarian colony.
- Six new unlockable characters- An Asari Justicar, Krogan Battlemaster Vanguard, Batarian Soldier, Batarian Sentinel, Geth Engineer, and a Geth Infiltrator.
- New unlockable weapons and consumables.
Check out the trailer and prepare to help save the galaxy, one bullet at a time.
