Mass Effect 3 will receive its new Earth downloadable content pack for the multiplayer mode later today, with new maps, character, weapons, and much more being set to arrive for the game completely free.
Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer mode has been a huge success, with developer BioWare releasing constant updates
, as well as lots of free DLC that brought new maps, characters and weapons.
After getting two add-ons earlier this year, in the form of Resurgence and Rebellion, Mass Effect 3 will soon receive a third expansion later today, July 17, in the form of Earth.
We already knew quite a few things about the add-on’s six new characters thanks to several leaks
, but you can check out all of the things included in the DLC below.

New In-Mission Objective – Randomly occurring during waves 3, 6 and 10, this new objective will challenge teams to keep a targeted agent alive by protecting and escorting them to a designated extraction zone on each map.
