'Mass Effect 3' will be first in series with multiplayer Confirming the rumors, BioWare has said today that Mass Effect 3 will be the first in the series with multiplayer components.
Reads a tweet from the company: "Full details soon, so wait until then before making your decision. We think you'll like it!"

The rumored was introduced when Official Xbox Magazine posted a report this week, albeit without specifics.

Earlier this year, at the E3 event, the developer made it clear that the game was moving in a new direction from previous in the series.

Mass Effect 3 launches next year, and the article in OXM should be available when the December edition hits newsstands.

I dunno if I could see this being a good thing or not.. I doubt it would be multiplayer incorporated into the story, so whats the point? Hopefully we get more details as we near game launch.

I can't see it being better any other way than in story mode. It's not as fast paced as a halo or MW3. But it would make a much better fit as a game that would allow puzzle solving as well as splitting up to complete the mission together. Even space dog fighting. But just to be in a room shooting at each other is starting to get played.

Agree completely; look at how well it worked for Borderlands *tho it had complete lack of story*, but again I doubt EA would do that as they risk a lot more in development costs not to mention size of the game.
