Mass Effect 3: Reckoning DLC Data-Mined From Latest Patch
Written By
View author's profile

The case for the next Mass Effect 3 DLC is building, with the latest patch being data-mined to reveal a few clues as to what it might be. The data reveals that it'll apparently be called 'Reckoning' and will in fact be a multiplayer expansion that will utilise data from your single-player campaign, including progress and paragon or renegade levels.

This suggests that the DLC could possibly see you teaming up with friends to co-op it up in some of the campaign's key battles, although none of this has yet been officially confirmed. However, a leaked description unearthed on the Xbox Live Marketplace and posted on Reddit, neatly coincides with the data discovered by Clevernoob forum user TSA_383, and offers up more clues pertaining to the multiplayer expansion.

"The day of reckoning is nigh! The Reckoning Multiplayer Expansion brings six new never before seen co-op story missions to the game and new co-op gameplay modes. It provides four new maps to conquer and hazard variations of the Earth maps," reads the leaked description.

"It also enables reinforcement packs that offer new kits for the salarians, krogans, humans and volus. In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons (Chakram Launcher, Blood Pack Punisher and Adas Anti-Synthetic Rifle)."

These aforementioned weapons have been added to single-player already, so them making the jump to multiplayer seems perfectly plausible. Reckoning could be what was teased alongside an upcoming single-player DLC, with a full reveal of Mass Effect 3's next add-ons promised for mid-February. Check out the images again below.

Interesting, but I'd probably prefer pure SP dlc.

How would cooping battles from SP work? Be cool if I could play as Garrus or Liara or someone else while my mate plays as his Shep.

Co-op story missions?

Am I just lacking caffeine to the brain or did I read that right?

I dig.

It'd be cool to do co-op missions WITH your multiplayer characters in the single player campaign. PARADOX!!!

Seriously though, I hope it supports couch co-op, I'd love to do a few missions with my wife.

Sounds really good. BUT(!) we need more single player DLC, what we have just isn't enough. I hope to the Gods of Gaming this isn't the last DLC it's rumored to be.

Screenshots look good. I cannot wait for more DLC for ME 3. I like Omega and Leviathan so far. I hope this final new DLC to have big one and basicially part of one year anniversary and it is final DLC for ME 3 so I bet it is gonna be big. I remember rumours before Christmas that mention final DLC for ME 3 will have big one. :P

February 2013 for release so I might hold it just like I explain before for Sleeping Dogs DLC so I hold both and both defo get once retail games become quiet week for release or in few weeks together that I don't like type of games come out either. I will get both around that time. Feb to June is hard time for it since lots of retail games on way. July maybe best time for it. Let see. :P

Brutal, Bioware is chunking big time. MP was a bad idea, now co-op...what an even worse idea. As long as there is no achievements to this then they can do whatever the hell they want and then fuck right off. What a garbage idea.

It'll probably be seen as like N7 Ops missions, not key battles from story. It'll take your skills and stats and alignment of single player character and put it into an N7 agent or something and give them their own story kinda. That's how I think it'll go down.

Bioware is dead, i wish death on everything Bioware related due to their ignorance shown to their core fanbase and how they abandoned us. Even the founders left as they see their once great studio turned into a slimey light brown stinking pile of shit.
Mass Effect and Dragon Age showed amazing promise and the first game in both series were amazing. Them IP's have been totally destroyed and stripped of all RPG elements and turned into button mashing dumb casual game or a dumb dumb mainstream corridor shooter.
Pathetic showing by Bioware and i watch your company die with glee. I would take a shit and spit on your grave Bioware when you have been dismantled by EA.

I hardly play multi-player and quite frankly, I wish it wasn't in the game at all. But, the way they've supported it SO much makes me want to start playing it more often. Other devs take note, THIS is how you support multi-player when you to tack it on to a big single player game.

Looking forward to it. Can't wait to use the Adas in multiplayer. And for those worried there won't be any more SP DLC remember that we already had confirmation a while back that Seth Green came back for some voice work for Joker. So there is going to be another SP expansion.

#21 Also you know how work if you are developers and join EA then you know what happen they will ask you all "can you in developing of franchise you did in past and it is time to have more action or more shooter rather then full RPG elements".

We all knew EA is bossy told BioWare to do what they want and basically for sales. It is what EA care about. :P

It's "Clever Noob" , not "Clevernoob". Either way, thanks for the feature!

I think this sounds cool. Would rather have single-player but we can't have everything we want.

I'll buy it day 1.

Bioware is probably the best game dev still. No need to shit on them.

I haven't played ME3 in a long time. Are any of the DLC any good? I'll probably wait til they are part of a DOTW promotion if I decide to get them though.

I'm holding off putting this game on my main account or buying dlc expressly because I'm concerned they will fuck it up with MP achievements. I can handle a short iOS game and app, but I just have no interest in MP. We'll see if they leave achievements off this one or if I'll just trade the game in and skip the dlc I guess.

@31: All cheevos can be obtained with a few runs of the campaign. MP can speed up the advancement of one or two very specific cheevos, but you don't need to go through it to 100% them. At least, that's how it is now.

OT: Great... MORE shit to try and unlock through that whack-ass CCG-style store...

@36 I know, what I'm waiting to see is if this dlc (or another MP dlc) changes that. I don't trust Bioware until they are done with dlc. Call me overly cautious.
