Mass Effect 3: Earth Multiplayer DLC Pack Details Leaked

A whole bunch of details for the upcoming Mass Effect 3 : Earth multiplayer DLC pack have leaked online, thanks to those industrious folks over on the BioWare forums, where there's images of the six new N7 classes that'll be introduced into the Galaxy at War multiplayer, alongside new Biotic powers and more.

Here's a bulletpoint breakdown of the six new classes and their Biotic powers:

  • (Adept) N7 Fury: Throw, Annihilation Field, Dark Channel
  • (Soldier) N7 Destroyer: Multi-Frag Grenade, Missile Launcher, Devastator Mode
  • (Engineer) N7 Demolisher: Homing Grenade, Arc Grenade, Supply Pylon
  • (Sentinel) N7 Paladin: Snap Freeze, Incinerate, Energy Drain
  • (Infiltrator) N7 Shadow: Tactical Cloak, Shadow Strike, Electric Slash
  • (Vanguard) N7 Slayer: Phase Disruptor, Biotic Charge, Biotic Slash

Apparently, the N7 Destroyer class will have a T5-V Battlesuit for "strong-but-slow mech-like protection", while the Paladin has an omni-shield and the Shadow will be packing a sword like Kai Leng in the single-player story. Sounds great. In addition to this lot, there'll also be three new weapons, new maps reportedly based on London, Rio and Vancouver and a new even harder than Gold difficulty titled Platinum.

Mass Effect 3: Earth will be coming to multiplayer for free download on July 17th. Expect more details on the pack as well as a possible announcement of the single-player Leviathan DLC (confirmed yesterday) at Comic-Con this weekend. For now though, check out the images from the Earth pack below.

Of course, they couldn't have used all this amazing concept art for the game itself. OF COURSE NOT.

I know, I know. It's all part of the plan. *links inane and inaccurate graph of how video game production is supposed to work*

The weapon the second figure is holding looks like an assault rifle from Halo.

Hoepfully these new classes are good some of the recent new ones are pretty dissapointing imo especially the vorcha and the biotic lightwhips are just to star wars.

Not bad some of the skins even look rather cool, however its pretty obvious most all of them are pre excisting armor from the game slightly reskined even the guns are if you look closely. Personally i hope after this they lay off the multiplayer content and focus on single player content a little more, the multiplayer is fun for awhile but its lost its charm and until they add more modes its still essentially just an afterthought.

How can you get more difficult than Gold difficulty? that stuff is nearly impossible! Will this just be actually impossible?

@3 Fail. That's the Phaeston Assault Rifle. And it looks nothing like anything from Halo.

OT: That first image is badass. Actually looks more like it could be a Quarian Husk than a new playable class.

@13- I don't care what it's called, I merely had an observation, so I posted it. If you don't believe me, look it up yourself. I didn't say anything negative about the design or the game itself. Please go fuck yourself.

That Supply Pylon could be really useful on Plat since more than likely you'll see the return of the old camping strats from Gold pre DLC packs.

I want those armors and guns in the singleplayer. While I enjoyed the MP when I played it, it was only to get the damn achievement (Defender,I think)attainable only through MP. I'll play MP again, but not anytime soon really. SO ENABLE THESE FOR SP!

1st weapon looks like a cross between the N7 shotgun and the grenade launcher from ME2.

Should be fun, (even if somewhat recycled like most of the assets there? can't complain when it's free I guess)

@12 - I do Gold all the time - picking the right place on the right map is the key. Making sure you have an Infiltrator for the uploads, someone with a speed boost for the fetch and carry missions is key. Missiles for when it all gets a bit hetic during the hacks, and the targets will come to you on Gold, no need to leave cover. Gold is not so difficult, if you plan for the eventuallities.

Having said all that, until Bioware sort the mess the have made of the packs, playing the MP seems almost pointless.

I can't wait to play on Platinum difficultly. Sure it will be hard but the credits are what me and my friends want to worry about the most.
Also Bioware should add more enemies like The Collector's or the different "gangs" Blue Suns and etc.
Though I still wish that they would add a Prothean as a MP character. We purchased the "From the Ashes" DLC and all we got was a free weapon for the campagin, an asset, and a Prothean for the campaign. They should have given usthe weapon and character to use in MP too.

Poor Sentinels, like me, only get one new ability, excluding the Omni Shield of course, but wouldn't that mean we can't use power armor since it isn't there? Vanguard and Infiltrator kept their signature moves and soldier,adept,and engineer basically have an ability with the same concept of their signature move.

@8 - I've been ready for single player content for quite a while too, but SOME WHINY BITCHES needed Bioware to put off actual content so they could get a little more closure....

Leviathan could have been out already -_-

@28 - Considering that in my game, the gangs were War Assets, I wouldn't mind seeing them as playable skins. I'd like to go in as the Blue Suns, Eclipse, or even a Shadow Broker hit squad (thought their armor was boss looking in Lair of the Shadow Broker.)

That being said, I agree that some new enemy types are a necessity to keep MP fresh.

Also, that Engineer looks badass!

Last weapon looks like an Asari Pistol. Might be a good lightweight backup for a Disciple or heavier weapon.
