Apparently this is all the upcoming MP characters that has been leaked. (Pinches of salt for everyone!)

If true, well BIOTIC GODS all round.

I call BS on volus characters. We have never seen a Volus so much as holding a gun. They aren't exactly built for combat.

The Asari sentinel looks ridiculous.

Volus biotic charge. Volus holding Typhoon. Volus dodge move. Volus carying a pizza. Volus using cover. Volus melee. Banshee grabing Volus. Can't wait to see those.

And still no Protheans.

Woohoo new enemies. Although personally I hope the Praetorian beam is toned down, otherwise it'll be like having quick moving Primes/Ravagers...

Also didn't the official announcement mention a Turian Infiltrator? Makes you question those images more.

There were sixteen new characters announced, but only thirteen are shown in the picture.

I want new Salarians.

Not to complain about free content but this sounds less interesting now that I know the new maps aren't new and the characters won't be available immediately. Sounds like more of the empty grind that made me quit in the first place.

I don't know, maybe it's to avoid making it feel like a grind actually. Instead of now having 16 new characters and three new weapons that everyone will want to try out and then complain that after spending 4 million credits they only ended up maxing out a couple of the new weapons and half of the new characters, they decided let us have the weapons and a few characters to start maxing out. Then in a week or two, unlock a couple more characters, then a couple more a week or two after that, and so on. So instead of having a million new things to unlock at once, have several at first, then a few things over time. Kind of like the recent unlocks of the Argus and Raider for MP. Give people something new to get them to come back to the game.

I'm pumped for this, this will keep me going until Halo 4 and COD BO 2 Launch. The collectors were an awesome enemy from ME2 looking forward to smashing them again especially with a greater understanding of who they were from Javik.

Would love to see the Volus as playable characters too, all we need now are some Elcor Vanguards with stampede attacks, and Hanar Infiltrators with ambush tentacles and we'll be set!

I can't wait for this, been losing interest in ME3 recently and this has got me more excited than any recent game releases.

I'm assuming direct control of this DLC once it's available.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that they give credits for extraction now? I was surprised to see a pop-up that read, "Extraction bonus: +7500 credits" after extracting on Gold. I guess it finally serves a purpose of finishing Wave 11 for people who are already level 20 in their best/most effective class.

The Earth DLC, which is free, adds the Platinum Difficulty (Link) among other stuff and the recent patch added the Extraction credit bonus (Link) which is pretty nice.

The DLC is pretty awesome. Since I'm pretty far behind in the character unlocks, I'll likely never play as the Biotic God but seeing that little guy run around in matches is okay with me.
p.s. scions are ridiculous. they need to be nerfed a bit.

I haven't been able to unlock a volus yet (much less see one waddling across the battlefield), but I have seen several people play as the new turian and I am completely mesmerized by it.

First impressions I'd be inclined to agree but a few matches in and they feel fine, a nice new challenge.

I got it while I was working on Machine Mastery (43% now.), it got kinda annoying using certain snipers like the Harpoon gun. Fortunately I have the banner to accompany me in lobbies as I grind 200 waves with certain characters for Machine Mastery. Saw an SMG version and the Collector General banner, which I thought was pretty cool.

Nice, I've only seen one banner so far, played with a guy last night using the "Biotic God" one, and yes he was using a Volus too.

The only challenge I've done is Grenade Damage 1, lol.

Gotta admit the Collectors are pretty damn fun and loving the new additions in enemies to the original factions.

You wouldn't expect that level of agility from a Volus. I'm proud of them.

Have been in a few matches with people using the volus adept, the little buggers are pretty beast actually.

Haven't seen the Turian Havoc yet anywhere, am very curious to see that one in action.

The last several crates I've bought of any kind, which is mostly PSP's, haven't even had any characters in them at all, am getting a few nice new level 4 ammo upgrades, ungraded guns I don't use and tons of consumables I already have tons of.

I got one character in 5 crates, the human infiltrator out of a veteran pack. Yay.

Jedi, jump in my party the next time you see me online in ME3 we usually just stick to bronze or silver though.

Oh, I will. The update has revived my interest in this. I will play non-stop until I get a volus!

Anyone have any success with the Reactor hazard? I have yet to be able to press the button and have it do anything and that's after 2/3 matches on it.

Also, had the no visible enemy glitch on FB: London, first time I've had that.

The reactor hazard has worked for me, racked up a few kills from it across a couple of games, even my team mates on one occasion, accidentally of course..
I find you have to be at just the right distance from the wall for it to work or your character will just take cover.

It has to charge up before you can push the button. Then theres a cool down before it can be done again. Above the button theres a lights bar that has to fill to the top before the option to start it is there.

The reactor hazard is very glitchy. One time the buttosn couldn't be activated, another time one of the doors got jammed shut

I was in a match where one of my team mates kept on trapping me in the reactor. I have a feeling that might turn into a trend.

Do the kills inside the reactor by the reactor itself get added to the in game points?

Volus adept is kind of cool but since he can't take cover and has really low health, he can go down in a heartbeat. yes he's small enough to hide behind a table but his head still pokes up and gets shot at.
Fun addition but not that great gameplay wise (just my opinion, sure many disagree).
