The rumors of multiplayer being pushed into the Mass Effect series for its trilogy-ender are finally being put to rest. It will have some gameplay for multiple users, and as it turns out, it will have a form of co-op.
After a few weeks worth of rumblings, Autralia’s Power Play magazine seemed to have busted the rumor in its entirety. The cover specifically states you can, “Fight alongside your friends.” That’s referring to as-of-yet unspecified means of co-op… until one tweet let more out.
Executive producer of the series, Casey Hudson, confirmed the in-game happenings via a tweet, reassuring players that they’re “spectacular” and “nothing of what you feared.” All of this seems to insinuate that these will occur outside the story mode, meaning these could turn out to be something like Call of Duty’s Spec Ops, loading potential for universe expansion (and DLC).
In other news, MultiplayerGames can officially cover the series for the first time.
