BioWare Executive Producer Talks Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer and Post-Lauch Support

BioWare Executive Producer, Casey Hudson has high hopes for Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer co-op mode, Galaxy at War, and hints at future DLC to support it post-launch.

In an interview with CVG, Hudson revealed some of the plans that BioWare has for Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer after launch. “We are going to be supporting Mass Effect 3 for quite some time, because I think people are going to have a lot of fun with multiplayer…” We can atteste to the amount of fun had in the recent multiplayer demo that was released on the 14th, which you can read all about right here. Hudson continued, “…and we’ll be supporting that with new content as we go forward,” again, most likely referring to DLC.

It seems safe to say that BioWare pulled off adding multiplayer to the Mass Effect franchise and pleasantly surprised many fans with the results. Personally, I’d love to see further iterations of Mass Effect multiplayer and would be more than happy to see it carry on past Mast Effect 3.

    I’m really looking forward to defeating the Reapers. The multiplayer was a surprisingly fun too. Trying to defeat Cerberus in Gold is ridiculous. I love the challenge. The AI for the enemies is crazy good. Throwing smokes and flashbangs before they assault you and your team. Epic battles. Plus the graphics got a huge upgrade from ME2. Ashley in the SP portion of the demo looks like a new person with the amount of detail they put into the character model.  Thoroughly impressed just by what little I’ve seen so far. It’s only going to get better once we get to play the full retail release.

    • I was really happy with the MP as well. You could tell it was running on the older engine however. Those smoke clouds were unbearably 2D. But you’re right. The AI is smart and the challenges are fun. SP looked absolutely gorgeous though. Great lighting effects and realistic motion blur. So can’t wait!

  • My friends and I have had our previous week consumed in Mass Effect multiplayer. Get a team on TS or Skype and this game is brilliant.

    Even more incentive to wait until price goes down or when the next version with dlc added is released.
