Another Mass Effect 3 Bounty Weekend

BioWare announces "Operation Raptor," another bounty weekend in Mass Effect 3, which will get underway at 8:00 pm EDT on Friday and run through 8:00 am EDT Monday. This is for the PC and Xbox 360 editions, and word is they are hard at work to add support for future events to the PlayStation 3 edition of the action/RPG sequel as well. Here's word on the event:

Rally your allies for this weekends Operation Raptor by promoting at least two characters to your single player campaign. All promotions will result in an increased N7 rating.

  • Allied Goal: Promote 150,000 characters. Victory Packs awarded to all players upon successful completion.
  • Individual Goal: Promote 2 characters. Commendation Pack awarded to individual players upon successful completion

Commendation Packs will be awarded to individual soldiers who complete their training and a Victory Pack will be awarded to everyone if the Allied Goal is achieved. Packs will be available to download the following week.

Additionally, a 10% XP bonus will be applied during this timeframe! Nows the time to shoot for two level 20 characters and build up your N7 rating with this weekend with Operation Raptor!

You'd almost think they were desperate to get more players and/or sales by how often they are doing these things.

The game's sold over 4 million and the multiplayer population on 360 is packed, as some friends also tell me it is on PC. It's doing fine.

Ok, I was just saying the first thing I thought of when I saw this. You are right, if its sold 4 mil, its doing just fine.

Edit:
Are you sure of that number? A quick google says they've SHIPPED about 3.5 million copies, which is not the same as SOLD.

It's most certainly shipped. And much like word of mouth from DA2's fail, those sales will taper off quickly.
