Mass Effect 3 will include the ‘Alliance Network’, a new feature expected to work similarly to Mass Effect 2′s ‘Cerberus Network’.
The Alliance Network is accessible upon redemption (or purchase) of an online pass.
BioWare has yet to release any information on the features included with the Alliance Network, but has said that it’s tied to the game’s multiplayer.
“I’m not going to talk about the Alliance Network or what that means,” said ME3′s Associate Producer Mike Gamble talking to GamerZines, “but part of it is ME3′s multiplayer.
“Multiplayer is an additional piece that works with the single-player as well – it all ties back together.”
EA previously announced that an online pass would be required to access Mass Effect’s multiplayer mode, which is being introduced to the series for the first time with Mass Effect 3.
Mass Effect 2′s Cerberus Network was a DLC and news service that offered exclusive DLC to users who activated the game’s online pass.
Mass Effect 3 launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 9th.
