Latest patch and internet sleuths piece together what’s in BioWare’s next bit of DLC.
Developers, beware the power of internet snoopers. GameRanx has reported that a bunch of clever coders from Clevernoob have unearthed new details about the next set of Mass Effect 3 DLC, ominously titled ‘Reckoning’.
According to the site, the new content will utilise save data from the single-player campaign, including Renegade/Paragon rating, in a set of multiplayer-only co-op missions. Thus far Mass Effect 3′s multiplayer has only consisted of a wave-based survival mode so adding story to the repetitive co-op combat, could add a whole new dimension to the sequel.
This latest leak would add creedence to the rumours that at one point Microsoft had a product description of the Reckoning DLC on Xbox Live before pulling it from the public database.
“The day of reckoning is nigh! 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),” alleged a user on Reddit one week ago.
This leak is very specific, but readers should wait until official confirmation from either BioWare or EA before getting too excited.
Frankly we’d prefer more single-player conten in a similar vein to the recent Omega DLC, however if the story elements are implemented well there’s no reason why Reckoning won’t be a hit.
