Are you enjoying the newly released "Earth" DLC for

If you answered, "Yes," I have some great news; BioWare's upcoming N7 Challenge Weekend will encourage you to use an "Earth Pack" character.

If you answered, "NO! I don't have any of those characters! This whole system is rigged!" I have some good news: if you succeed in this weekend's challenge you'll be guaranteed to earn an "Earth Pack" character.

Here are the details.


Operation Overwatch drops troops on Earth to tackle the most secure Reaper strongholds. Reaper anti-air defense will make for high-risk shuttle extractions.
Squad Goal: Extraction on any difficulty with at least one squad member using an "Earth Pack" character.

Allied Goal: Extract 800,000 individual players on any difficulty, with each live member counting toward the goal.

Squad Goal Success: All squad members awarded a Commendation Pack.

Allied Goal Success: All players awarded a Victory Pack that includes a new "Earth" character.

Special Circumstance: Extraction time lengthened due to failure of Operation Broadside.

Requirement: Mass Effect 3's "Earth" DLC must be installed to earn these rewards.

Operation Overwatch will start on July 27th at 10AM PDT and run through July 30th at 5AM PDT.
