BioWare is working on new DLC packs for both the single-player and the multiplayer modes in Mass Effect 3, at least according to an employee from the Canadian developer who talked with fans at the San Diego Comic-Con last week.
Mass Effect 3 has been around for quite some time and BioWare has managed to keep players coming back to it by releasing all sorts of new content, from special add-ons for the multiplayer, to the long-awaited Extended Cut DLC
for the single-player.
Now, after releasing the latest expansion for the online mode, in the form of the Earth DLC
, BioWare is apparently working on multiple add-ons for the game, targeted at its multiplayer and its single-player mode.
The mention arrives via an attendant of the San Diego Comic-Con, who talked extensively with one of the developers and posted his statements on GameFAQs
“When I asked if Earth would be the last multiplayer DLC he actually laughed at me and explained they are making way more money developing multiplayer content than they would single player content, though both are being made,” according to the forum poster.
While the single-player DLC might be the Leviathan add-on
, which is practically all but confirmed after files and voice actors have confirmed its story, the multiplayer add-on might bring a fourth enemy faction.
“When I commented that I wish there were new opponents, he confirmed the studio was already working on a new faction,” the poster added.
What’s more, besides the new enemy faction, BioWare is also trying to make cooperative missions, not just matches based on waves, according to the unnamed source.
“He also says they have written plans on making 4 player cooperative missions that play like the single player, but he said that it was at a very early stage of development and cannot be guaranteed.”
All in all, these are some pretty big reveals but don’t expect BioWare to comment on it anytime soon, as the studio always makes its announcements when it’s ready to share actual things with fans.
