Mass Effect 3 fans have plucked first details of the forthcoming DLC packs from this week's bug fix. God bless developers and their bizarre habit of leaving bits of upcoming content lying around.
As reported by Eurogamer, future Mass Effect 3 expansions will implement a new multiplayer mode which imports data from the single player, including Paragon and Renegade scores, reputation points and your overall progress.
The news corroborates an alleged product listing for Mass Effect 3: Reckoning, posted to Reddit. "The day of reckoning is nigh!" it reads. "The Reckoning Multiplayer Expansion brings six new never before seen co-op story missions to the game and new co-op gameplay modes. It provides four new maps to conquer and hazard variations of the Earth maps.
"It also enables reinforcement packs that offer new kits for the salarians, krogans, humans and volus. In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons (Chakram Launcher, Blood Pack Punisher and Adas Anti-Synthetic Rifle)."
The above weapons are recent additions to the single-player campaign, but have yet to make the jump to Galaxy at War. Intrepid data-miner TSA_383 has uncovered multiplayer-functional varieties in the update files.
BioWare recently teased new downloadable content for the Mass Effect 3 cosmos. You can see Wrex in the picture there.
