Bioware announced on Thursday that there would be new free dlc coming to Mass Effect 3 on Tuesday, April 10th. The pack will include two new multiplayer maps, new races and classes to play, and new weapons to unlock. They said-
Join the war for Earth in Mass Effect 3! Owners of Mass Effect 3 can download the first multiplayer expansion for no additional cost. The Mass Effect 3 Resurgence Pack adds new unlockable content: deadly weapons, new consumables, and powerful characters for each class in multiplayer, including the Asari Justicar, Batarian, Geth, and Krogan Battlemaster. Additionally, the Mass Effect 3 Resurgence Pack also includes 2 new maps, Firebase Condor and Firebase Hydra. Download this pack on April 10th and take the battle online in the critically acclaimed Mass Effect 3 multiplayer experience.
This is a good indication for the future of Mass Effect 3, as this multiplayer pack and the additional ending content dlc are both free, possibly the first time in Electronic Art’s history that there are two pieces of free downloadable content in a row for one of its big games. No doubt that like From Ashes, the Prothean dlc that was available at launch, further single player dlc will cost “Bioware Points” to buy, but the contrast between paid dlc for the campaign and free dlc for the multiplayer might create a winning formula for EA and Bioware. With the free ending change on its way as well soon, players should be feeling a little more appreciative towards the developer and the publisher for their efforts.
