Australian gaming magazine PC PowerPlay has broken the news that Mass Effect 3 has multiplayer on its website.
“That’s right – Mass Effect 3 is getting multiplayer,” says the site. “We travel to BioWare’s office in Edmonton for hands-on time with the series’ first foray into online gameplay, and chat with Mass Effect Series Producer and Mass Effect 3 Project Director Casey Hudson about the decision to go multiplayer in the epic battle for the galaxy.”
In addition to the above, it also says “Fight alongside your friends as the galaxy goes to war,” which we are guessing points to multiplayer co-op rather than online features such as deathmatch etc.
A South African retailer recently revealed that the game would be receiving an online pass, so that ties up to this news pretty well.
We will no doubt find out more soon.
