Mass Effect 3 To Receive Final Multiplayer DLC, “Reckoning,” Along With The “Citadel” Story Expansion


BioWare has not confirmed Reckoning to be Mass Effect 3’s last multiplayer DLC. Mass Effect 3: Citadel will be the last story-related DLC, however.

BioWare is hard at work on not only one, but two upcoming content expansions for Mass Effect 3 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel, dropping this March 5 for $14.99 or 1200 MS points, offers a new adventure for Commander Shephard and gang as they re-visit and re-explore the iconic Citadel.

Mass Effect 3: Reckoning, on the other hand, will deliver some brand new multiplayer content for the price of absolutely free this February 26.

Reckoning brings new ways to play with three new character classes like the Geth Juggernaut, Cabal Vanguard, Talon Mercenary, Alliance Infiltration Unit, and more.  Also, the new Krogan Warlord has access to a unique new weapon, the Biotic Hammer.

Additional weapons like the Geth Spitfire Assault Rifle, Venom Shotgun and Lancer Assault Rifle will also join you arsenal, as will new equipment and weapon mods like the Geth Scanner and Assault Rifle Omni-blade.

Those wanting to catch an early look at Mass Effect 3: Reckoning can keep an eye on BioWare’s live stream antTwitch TV this Monday, February 25, at 9:30am PST/6:30pm CET.

    Are you sure this is the last multiplayer dlc?
    I really liked those 🙁

    • Sorry about that. It’s not confirmed to be the last MP DLC. Mis-read the press release.

      • PlatinumSoldier

        Thank god 🙂

        • Undead Pres

          One of the devs wrote that this was going to be the last one.

          • PlatinumSoldier

            I really dont think so, but if this is the last, this was a very addictive and fun multiplayer mode

            • Yeah I heard it was going to be the last as well. Also there are supposedly no more weekend challenges either.

  • Khlaid Ashgar

    the magic word….FREE!

  • PlatinumSoldier

    Two new pics: Geth Juggernaut (looks awesome) and the Talon Mercenary
    In the second pic I imagine that is the Geth Spitfire

    • Sergeant Kelly

      The gun in the second pic is the M7 Lancer from Mass Effect 1. The spitfire is going to be a handheld version of that big minigun from the Quarian missions. 🙂

      Also, there’s another typo in this post. The new assault rifle mod is Assault Rifle Ultralight Materials, since we already have the Assault Rifle Omni-Blade.

      • PlatinumSoldier

        Oh yeah, but that thing shoots like the hurricane!

    • Um, that’s not the talon merc, it’s the cabal.

      • PlatinumSoldier

        Yeah, but around that time I wasn’t sure

  • Awesome

    This is how you support your game. Free Multiplayer DLC. Hell I still play this from time to time. The multiplayer is good. And whats funny is people work together on this game better than the top shooters. They have stuff that forces you to play the objectives. DICE take notes please

    • Yeah, but it’s competitive enough because the longer you play, the more serious things get. However the random jerk can ruin games if you’re not prepared or if your gear are all low leveled items and weapons.

      Lastly, with the right characters and people, you can literally solo waves if your teammates are all down and you’re out or rockets or medigel.

      • Only downside is that you have to be connected to EA’s servers to access the online multiplayer section. Since this is EA we’re talking about, they’ll probably pull their servers in a few years sadly.
