After giving fans closure in the Extended Cut DLC, Bioware still has plans for Mass Effect 3. Next DLC will again be free and the content will be for multiplayer. Earth is the name of the DLC and will include the usual - New maps, new guns, characers, and a Platinum Mode if you consider Gold too easy at this point.
Bioware is dumping tons of support for Mass Effect 3. I'm surprised with how many free DLC's they're throwing at us. Sure it's mostly for multiplayer, but it's still free content nonetheless.
Earth will include three guns - Piranha assault shotgun, Acolyte pistol, and Typhoon assault rifle. The six new characters will also include new abilities and melee attacks that I wish were in the single player campaign.
Engineer class: N7 Demolisher
Abilities: Homing Grenade, Arc Grenade, Supply Pylon Description: The Demolisher uses grenades to attack at range and to terrorize the battlefield. Demolishers can also create a supply pylon that stocks allies with an unending reserve of grenades and thermal reloads.
Sentinel class: N7 Paladin Abilities: Snap Freeze, Incinerate, Energy Drain Description: The Paladin carries a powerful omni-shield onto the battlefield to block enemy fire. The Paladin also uses the shield as a heavy-melee weapon that, when modified with incendiary or cryo upgrades, creates a devastating combination attack.
Infiltrator class: N7 Shadow Abilities: Tactical Cloak, Shadow Strike, Electric Slash Description: Shadow infiltrators use implants to dramatically improve agility, making them slippery combatants on the battlefield. Their monomolecular blades are a menace from cover and close range.
Vanguard class: N7 Slayer Abilities: Phase Disruptor, Biotic Charge, Biotic Slash Description: Slayers use implants to dramatically improve mobility. Their dizzying sword attacks can hit multiple opponents, and the Slayer’s ability to slip fire makes them hard to pin down on the battielfield.
Adept class: N7 Fury Abilities: Throw, Annihilation Field, Dark Channel Description: Fury operatives use implants to fuel biotics and their incredible movement speed. These operatives wind an unpredictable path on the battlefield, moving in and out of combat before returning to unleash a sweeping biotic attack on their unsuspecting targets.
Soldier class: N7 Destroyer Abilities: Multi-Frag Grenade, Missile Launcher, Devastator Mode, T5-V Battlesuit Description: The Destroyer’s T5-V Battlesuit gives these strong-but-slow soldiers mech-like protection. Driven by eezo-assisted actuators, these frontline troopers carry heavy weapons onto the battlefield.
And best of all, new maps to play in - Vancouver, Rio, and London. More maps equals Longer lifespan. Especially when it's all free.
I stopped playing ME3 multiplayer 2 DLC's ago. Maybe it's about time I revisit when this hits. Curious on how platinum goes, Gold is damn hard as it is.
You can start downloading the Earth DLC on July 17 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
