View author's profile

An upcoming add-on for Mass Effect 3 was briefly outed last night, revealing details of a new multiplayer pack.

The content, listed on the Hong Kong PlayStation website then quickly taken down, includes a pair of new maps and six more classes. It’s called Rebellion.

The website blurb said, “The Rebellion Multiplayer Expansion opens two new fronts against the Reapers: Firebase Jade’s jungle reservoir and Firebase Goddess on Thessia. 

“In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons as well as equipment, consumables, and six new classes: Quarian Engineer and Infiltrator, Vorcha Soldier and Sentinel, Phoenix Adept and Vanguard. The battle continues – hold the line!”

The listing also revealed that Rebellion will launch this week, so expect an official reveal soon. If it’s real, that is...

It's probably a Male Quarian, I myself had always wondered why one of the Quarians was not a Male, also what is a Phoenix in terms of Mass Effect?
Maybe Phoenix is a Prothean & there trying to keep it a secret? Who knows, fingers crossed that this DLC is free as well but some how I doubt it:(

I remember bioware saying that they wouldn't ever put multiplayer dlc achievements in the game (sorry no source). Won't necessarily stop them charging for it tho. Assassins creed 2's cut chapters were released with no achievements but you still had to pay for each episode.

@13: During the summer, they're releasing the Extended Cut of the ending. Single-player DLC wouldn't really make much sense unless it takes place before the ending, though.

@15 Well as you can play the ME2 DLC at any point in the game that's what I was thinking. They can easily add missions like they did with the Shadow Broker, hell I don't even care if you dont play as Sheppard, they could do something like Dead Space 2 did.
I'm really not interested in a different ending or multiplayer DLC, it gets boring pretty quickly. I'm sure thet must have something else up their sleeves unless all this ending nonsense is draining their resources.

I'm going to guess that a Phoenix could possibly be a Prothean. After all, the add-on was called "from ashes"...

I dont get why they are messing around with this. The only classes people want to see are Blasto the first Hanar spectre or that little volus biotic from the 2nd. Job done.

Chris Priestly has already confirmed that this is not true over on the Bioware forums.

Quote: "Sorry folks, this is not true. There is no ME3 MP DLC coming out tomorrow. This is the internet and you cannot "unsee" things, but the details in this are not correct.

I am not going to close this or anything as the rumor will continue to spread whether I do or not, but please refer people to my post here when it comes up.

We will have more information on ME3 MP DLC in the future, I hope later this month, but nothing more to be said now."

havnt played this since i completed it, the multiplayer is wayyyyyyyy to boring so this will not be a go for me.

it would be nice to finally get the "different ending" or whatever it was they were supposively working on.

enough with the gay MP DLC its not fun.

The two new quarian characters are male, which is the difference between the ones already in the game. As for the phoenix, it's possible that it could be the Raloi, a new species mentioned breifly in Mass Effect 2 and 3. They are known to be a space-faring "avian" (hence "Phoenix") species from the planet Turvess that more than likely had to battle the Reapers. In an attempt to not get noticed as intelligent life, they returned to Turvess shortly after first contact with other life and destroyed all their ships and satellites.

Mass Effect MP is so repetitive. Can only play one or two rounds before it becomes boring. Give me some single player DLC, you know, for the REAL game. I need something to wash that bad taste from my mouth after going through the ending.

This game is not only a complete waste of time to play (endure) online, but it is also suicide-inducing via the sheer tedium of "surviving" the same fucking enemy "sets" over and over and over again.

No thanks, Even Horde 2.0 with it's lack of Public Horde and Marcus-only join in progress is better because at least you get any enemy spawning to kill you rather than these extremely limited sets.

I was told by a friend of mine that has a family member that works for Bioware that there is new MP DLC incoming soon but the class types are way different then described here. The Vorcha maybe true but the new DLC is supposed to bring tank like characters to the playing field like a geth prime and even a smaller version of the atlus as playable characters. This may not be true either but it is more believable than the introduction of a new species into multiplayer. I've played the entire series multiple times and don't remember anything about bird like aliens called phoenix. Either this is a code name for something else or they weren't memorable enough to matter.

I... don't see myself actually liking to play as a Vorcha. o.o (Yeah, I'm not space-scum, sorry.)

I'm intrigued by the Phoenix classes though ;) (Hanar maybe? lol)

If this is free then it would give me a great reason to jump back into this game. After a while the multiplayer got very boring for me so this would be a great opportunity to start playing it again.

As others have stated, Phoenix most likely refers to Protheans. Not only that, but Protheans were talented biotics so it would make sense for them to be adepts and vanguards.

Also, where is the news of the Extended Cut DLC that we were supposed to hear about in April?

Ugh..! I hate the ME3 multiplayer I'd rather just spend "X" amount of Microsoft points to buy the races. I might be in the minority but spending two days trying to unlock a Geth with a crappy trading card RNG system is pure ridiculousness and not fun in the slightest.
