Multiplayer Mass Effect 3?

A post on the BioWare Social Network has a scan of an ad from a South African retailer that seems to support long-standing suspicions that multiplayer support will be included in Mass Effect 3. The add for the next installment in the action/RPG series lists "online multiplayer pass" as one of the features of a collector's edition. Thanks NeoGAF via VG247. Just last week plans to reveal a "killer new feature" in Mass Effect in the October 25th issue of Xbox World magazine.

Meh, I think I just lost interesting with this game/feature. When it was a stand alone product I had hopes that it would be good but as a feature in ME3 this is probably going to be a "check on a chart" game mode. Sad, I was hoping they'd spin off something special and make an awesome scifi shooter.

Gears definitely added some some substanial MP content this time around so maybe these guys can do that on their first time out. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was better than I expected...Bioware doesn't seem to be out to "over-deliver" lately so I think I'll play it safe and pass on buying ME3 new.

Nail in the coffin is the online multiplayer pass. Every time a company puts that in it's like a signal flare that says this game is shit and nobody would dream of paying for something after they've played it, so get as much money upfront as possible.

Warhammer 40k Space Marine, MP pass. MP game sucks.
Gears 3, no online pass, MP game is awesome and something people are likely going to stick with and pay money in the future.
Homefront, MP is ok but very quickly turns to crap.
Call of Duty, MP is awesome, no pass, people will likely pay lots of money down the road.

Maybe it's too simple to say MP sucks if you use an online pass...it just seems to mean they have no plans to expand/improve it in the future so get the money while you can. I think Assassins Creed Brotherhood has a pass and that was pretty good but it still got old very quickly, they made some improvements but not enough to keep people playing.


Space Marine had no online pass..... And the Multiplayer does not suck. At least not on PC. Dunno what you're smoking.
