The Rebellion Multiplayer Expansion opens two new fronts against the Reapers: Firebase Jade's jungle reservoir and Firebase Goddess on Thessia. In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons as well as equipment, consumables, and six new classes: Quarian Engineer and Infiltrator, Vorcha Soldier and Sentinel, Phoenix Adept and Vanguard.

Yes, those are new... oO

P.S. Yes, I know I'm meant to bitch about EA, sorry

I believe they're meant to signify Male Quarians. Why that's considered a different race, I have no idea.

In the last expansion pack there was two types of Asari adept, each with her own unique set of powers and distinct look. Sort of like sub-classes. It could be that again, but I bet you're right that they're males.

Yeah, the Justicar. Though she was just considered a different class, not a different race.

We'll see when they announce it. Chris Priestley said they'd announce it "before the end of the month", which is why I figured it'd come out next month.

Probably won't come out until next month, and they're likely going to charge for it, which will be the death of the MP.

Notes date and time of this prediction.

Free MP packs was always our plan, regardless of speculation to the contrary. I don't believe there are any plans to change that for any possible future map pack DLC.

If you release it on the 31st just to spite me, I'm going to be SO ANGRY, DEREK!!!

But if it's free, then that's awesome, and I happily stand corrected.

Didn't you get burned trying to predict the "pay" status of the last two DLCs? I guess if you make the same claim over and over you're bound to be right eventually.

To be fair they pretty much had to do free DLC after the ending fiasco which turned into a PR nightmare for Bioware.

I forgot all about ME3 once I beat the game. I don't care anymore about the "explained" ending DLC or any other DLC they pump for this game. EA and Bioware did this game series right, by jeffing it up.

Same here. Completely forgotten about it. Like none of the games ever existed.

It was funny how quickly EAware came onto the forum to deny these rumors. (ie, it's true.)

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

The item pack unlock system is probably the most blatant pandering to gambling/addiction personalities I've ever seen, I can just imagine the people buying little packs with their credit card hoping that it won't contain a dupe.
Guilty as charged, I only got 1 pack though.

They need to flesh it out and add more game modes. The MP is fun for a few days but quickly becomes a tedious grind because its too samey. The item pack unlock system is probably the most blatant pandering to gambling/addiction personalities I've ever seen, I can just imagine the people buying little packs with their credit card hoping that it won't contain a dupe. The netcode could use some work and good grief, add text chat for the MP. I feel like I'm playing with bots when people don't have headsets.

It was an ok first effort but as usual EA/Bioware are going to halfass it instead of making serious improvements that could make the MP a true contender with other titles.
