Rumour becomes reality today, as Mass Effect 3's oft-mooted online multiplayer has finally been confirmed in Australian gaming magazine, PC PowerPlay, which features an article detailing the game's multiplayer having been on a trip to see BioWare.
"That's right - Mass Effect 3 is getting multiplayer!" exclaims the magazine. "We travel to BioWare's office in Edmonton for hands-on time with the series' first foray into online gameplay, and chat with Mass Effect Series Producer and Mass Effect 3 Project Director Casey Hudson about the decision to go multiplayer in the epic battle for the galaxy."
'Fight alongside your friends' is the cover tagline too, suggesting that online co-op is indeed in the offing, much like Rage's Legend of the Wasteland co-op missions, as we suggested when a page from a South African mag emerged last week advertising Mass Effect 3, listed online multiplayer among the features.
It also appears that Mass Effect 3's co-op missions will be an entirely separate mode, that will in no way affect the core single-player campaign. Sounds perfectly fine to us. Mass Effect 3 is out on March 6th, 2012.
