While whispers have been circulating through the rumor tubes of the internet, the multiplayer mode in Mass Effect 3 was never 100% confirmed. We’ve speculated, we’ve wished, we’ve begged, and now we have.
PC Power Play, an Australian based magazine, visited Bioware’s offices in Edmonton, Canada for some hands-on time with the game. Apparently, they put their hands in the right places as it was confirmed by the game’s Project Director, Casey Hudson, that multiplayer will indeed be in Mass Effect 3 .
If you click on the thumbnail image below, you can expand the image to show the full cover of the Power Play issue that confirms the multiplayer mode. As you’ll notice, the sub-heading says “Fight alongside your friends as the galaxy goes to war”, the wording of which implies it might be a cooperative mode.
Mass Effect 3 hits PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on March 6, 2012.
