Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Trailer

By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
As a quasi-professional pseudo-reporter of gaming news, I know there's a lot of skepticism about the upcoming multiplayer component to BioWare's final, Shepard-driven opus, http://www.trueachievements.com/Mass-Effect-3-xbox-360.htm. Gamers everywhere are equal parts nervous, angry, lugubrious, and excited about what's in store when it comes to BioWare's first console foray into the multiplayer world. While details have slowly emerged through stories and screenshots, we have yet to see much in the form of gameplay video... until today, that is.

With the upcoming demo set to include a taste of the multiplayer, BioWare is now giving gamers their first glimpse at in-game video of what to expect from the "Galaxy at War" multiplayer mode.

Mass Effect 3 hits retailers in North America on March 6th and in Europe on March 9th.

Combat looks so much smoother from 2 to 3. Love it! This mode is going to be a great addition to what is already a masterpiece!
I aim to misbehave!

Still looking for team mates to play this with.

Amazing trailer. I wasn't even that interested until I saw this. I was just going to play for achievements and story.

The mode looks like it fits well with the series. I couldn't see the game with a deathmatch/team deathmatch style.

Nice! The MP could really be hit or miss with fans, but I really like the trailer.

looks to "not smooth" to not be gameplay. That said, it looks incredibly smooth anyway and I can't wait to play it!

But yeah, the trailer looks fantastic. It's pretty much how I imagined it to be. I am pleased by this.

Curse you, reviewer, for sending me to the dictionary!
I have a pathetically high tolerance for grinding.

I love the trailer, which IS in-game only it has a few seconds of animations in it. That might confuse some people. Even though the trailer looks amazing i'm still not sure if it's something for me, i love ME for its SP. Unless ofc they add MP achievements which i hope they don't grrr..
