Mass Effect Executive Producer Casey Hudson took to Twitter today to confirm that Mass Effect 3 will in fact have online co-op missions. “Yes, co-op MP missions for #ME3: they’re real, and they’re spectacular. Rest assured, it’s nothing of what you’ve feared. More soon…”
The reveal comes hot of the heels of word of a “killer new feature” being revealed for the game, and Australian gaming magazine PC Powerplay spilling the beans a bit early. In a preview for the magazine’s November issue, PC Powerplay’s website says; ” “That’s right – Mass Effect 3 is getting multiplayer! 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.”
Online multiplayer is just the latest feature to be revealed for the upcoming third chapter in the Mass Effect series, back at this year’s E3 it was revealed that the game will also feature Kinect functionality, allowing users to interact and speak to other characters via Kinect’s microphone.
Mass Effect 3 releases for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 6.
