Source - Major Nelson.

New Classes

(Adept) N7 Fury: Throw, Annihilation Field*, Dark Channel

"Fury operatives use implants to fuel biotics and their incredible movement speed. These operatives wind an unpredictable path on the battlefield, moving in and out of combat before returning to unleash a sweeping biotic attack on their unsuspecting targets."

(Soldier) N7 Destroyer: Multi-Frag Grenade*, Missile Launcher*, Devastator Mode*

"The Destroyer's T5-V Battlesuit gives these strong-but-slow soldiers mech-like protection. Driven by eezo-assisted actuators, these frontline troopers carry heavy weapons onto the battlefield."

(Engineer) N7 Demolisher: Homing Grenade*, Arc Grenade, Supply Pylon*

"The Demolisher uses grenades to attack at range and to terrorize the battlefield. Demolishers can also create a supply pylon that stocks allies with an unending reserve of grenades and thermal reloads."

(Sentinel) N7 Paladin: Snap Freeze*, Incinerate, Energy Drain

"The Paladin carries a powerful omni-shield onto the battlefield to block enemy fire. The Paladin also uses the shield as a heavy-melee weapon that, when modified with incindiery or cryo upgrades, creates a devastating combination attack."

(Infiltrator) N7 Shadow: Tactical Cloak, Shadow Strike, Electric Slash*

"Shadow infiltrators use implants to dramatically improve agility, making them slippery combatants on the battlefield. Their monomolecular blades are a menace from cover and close range."

(Vanguard) N7 Slayer: Phase Disruptor*, Biotic Charge, Biotic Slash*

"Slayers use implants to dramatically improve mobility. Their dizzying sword attacks can hit multiple opponents, and the Slayer's ability to slip fire makes them hard to pin down on the battielfield."

New Weapons

Piranha Assault Shotgun
Acolyte Asari Pistol - YES!
Typhoon Light Machine Gun

In addition to the new Maps, Weapons and Classes, Bioware is adding a PLATINUM! difficulty.

I like the look of the last class.

#5 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

Well, damn. I guess I'm not finished playing the multiplayer. I wasn't quite sure about the inclusion of multiplayer for ME3 when it was announced, but it's been pretty fun.

That's the only class I think looks dumb, the others look awesome, Paladin and Fury and my favorites.

#7 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

Im actually pretty into those class designs, might make me jump back in, for a day or two at least.

#8 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Whoa I'm amazed at the quality of the free DLC.

#9 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@BraveToaster: I've spent over 300 hours and still loving the game. It's a love for the universe that helps, being able to play all those races I've always wanted to. These humans are fine but I want more aliens, Turian Female!

#10 Posted by buft (3298 posts) -

Is that a melee class? ever since that rumor went round of a melee only class before launch I have wished to play as one. Like many people here im seeing a definite possibility for more Mass Effect 3 multiplayer.

#11 Posted by kindgineer (2486 posts) -

@SmasheControllers: Well...YOU'RE DUMB.

#12 Posted by MethodMan008 (796 posts) -

More good stuff!

The multiplayer is pretty damn fun. Although I am stuck doing bronze runs over and over again.. But at least I dominate at those. :P

#13 Posted by FLStyle (4401 posts) -

I like the look of the Paladin, a defensive option seems very useful for most of the missions.

#14 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

@SmasheControllers: Yes, Turian female, and a few Prothean characters would be nice. It would be awesome to have a map set up on a Prothean settlement.

#15 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@BraveToaster: There are a ton of maps I'd love to see. Eden Prime, the Ardat-Yakshi Monastery and some ME 1 maps, but what I really want is Collector Enemies.

#16 Posted by jillsandwich (761 posts) -

Those are all blatant re-skins of existing character models, but damn if they don't look dope as fuck.

#17 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@jillsandwich: Yeah, personally I think Slayer and Shadow looks too much like Kai Leng and Phantom.

#18 Posted by TheHT (10326 posts) -

Holy fuck. New Vanguard class here I come (if I'm lucky enough to unlock it).

Same here...I can't seem to find a solid core of people to play with on a regular basis, but every once in a while I feel sassy and survive a Silver!

#20 Posted by _Chad (957 posts) -

This is pretty awesome looking but it's still not enough to get me to go back to the ME3 multiplayer.

#21 Posted by Doctorchimp (4063 posts) -

Man I want to play as Slayer...

But fuck Kai Leng...god that guy is such a tool. Where the fuck did he come from? Felt so goddamn out of place.

He came from an alternate universe MGS4.
 
Also the books.
#23 Edited by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@Doctorchimp: The books, he's an asshole but was a great antagonist for Anderson and Sanders and is a great antagonist for Shepard.

Also he's Slavic and Chinese.

I didn't mean tool like "Oh god I can't believe this videogame character can be so mean" I meant tool like, "what the fuck did they put in a cyber ninja for? Why couldn't he just be an assassin, and why do they have to go out of their way to show me how bad-ass he is?" He feels like he got dropped from a 90's comic book.

Thane was an assassin, but he actually fit in. Kai Leng felt like they tried to hard. Also I'm happy he was in the books, I didn't want to read them so it felt really out of place when he just showed up as this shadow ninja badass.

#25 Edited by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@Doctorchimp: Yeah he looks super dumb, I felt they could have made his cybernetic implants looks better.

#26 Posted by mrpandaman (836 posts) -

It's hard to believe that they keep making these free multi-player DLCs. I haven't played in a month and a half now ever since I got yelled at for playing an Asari adept with the Mantis sniper rifle... bubble stasis and headshot was awesome plus the Mantis was my best weapon at the time and I couldn't get a drop for a heavy pistol to save the life of me. Anyways, yeah this looks pretty cool.

#28 Posted by AngelN7 (2959 posts) -

Holy shit dude they look awesome , the guy with the big onmi-shield and Robo-Kasumi look pretty rad , I'm more excited to get those classes than the previous ones ... well except for the Geth the Geth are the coolest.

#29 Edited by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@AngelN7: The first DLC had my three favorite characters(Justicar, Geth Engineer and Batarian Soldier), the last DLC was okay but the class were exactly the same and this DLC looks amazing.

Man, once again I gotta say these names are pretty terrible, like 90's comic characters bad.

#31 Posted by Aetheldod (3346 posts) -

So this means I need to go back to the mp to grind some creds.... fine by me :D and a new vanguard oh goody goody >:3

#32 Posted by AngelN7 (2959 posts) -

@SmasheControllers: Yeah I didn't care all that much for the Vorcha or the Batarians, the Asari justicar and Krogan BM are pretty cool but I haven't got those nor the Geth engineer or any of the male Quarians (but from the looks of it their skills they don't seem all that interesting to me) and since my favorite class still is the Human Engineer it's nice that they made another one of those hopefully with interesting skills. I wasn't feeling the last DLC or those maps (Firebase jungle is alright) but this DLC got my full attention again.

#33 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@AngelN7: Battlemaster, Batarian and Vorcha Sentinel were a huge disappointment. Justicar is the best Tank in the game, Geth Engineer and Male Quarian are great amazing Support characters, Geth's Turrets heal and Tac Scan allows the team to focus fire on a single target, Batarian Soldier is a Phantom killer machine, best heavy melee in the game!

#34 Posted by Galiant (2164 posts) -

I hope I don't have to participate in some kind of event to unlock these classes. I really enjoy the multiplayer, but I'm not very good at it.

#35 Posted by StarvingGamer (7586 posts) -

Oh fuck, it might be time to dive back in since I'm getting tired of Diablow

#36 Posted by dudeglove (7282 posts) -

Said it before, I'll say it again - the multiplayer for this game far outweighs the shitfest of the single player. Supply pylon thing looks amazing.

#37 Edited by pweidman (2215 posts) -

More great free ME3 mp DLC..woo hoo. Also another version of Human Engineer? SMG recoil system? Platinum diff added? New objective mode as well? Too fucking awesome. Also, pretty sure it's been confirmed that all this will not be UR , but just rare cards. Time to save up some creds :).

EDIT: Assault Rifle Thermal Scope!

#38 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@pweidman: Yeah so glad the character's are not N7's, though they haven't said anything about the weapons, I think the Typhoon and Piranha are N7s but the Acolyte will only be a Rare. Really want that Pistol, I want my Justicar to be using Asari weapons.

This pack is absolutely huge 3 maps, 3 weapons, 6 classes, 12 mods, 11 gears and one new objective.

#39 Edited by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

Some info from SDCC that users from Reddit and the BSN posted.

Fury: Dark Channel's the same as it is in the singleplayer and both the Fury and Slayers evade uses Barriers like Asari's and it's a Nightcrawler style teleport.

Destroyer: Multi-Frag is wrist-mounted and still has a limited use like other grenades, Missile Launcher is shoulder mounted it's like a much more powerful Concussive Shot and Devastator Mode is pretty much AR and Marksman combine increases Damage, Rate of Fire, Ammo and Health but slows movement.

Paladin: Snap Freeze is just a more powerful Cryo Blast, Paladin's melee is a Shield Bash and Heavy Melee is a Defensive mode where he stands still with the shield.

Shadow: Shadow Strike is a teleport like in singleplayer and it's hitscan, Electric Slash is like Shockwave but with a sword animation and her heavy melee is the Phantom's insta-gib animation.

I think all this is cool, but the thing they really need is more enemies. They're cool and all but I want to do more than fight Cerberus and Reapers.

#41 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@Brodehouse: How about all three at once? Cause that's what Platinum is.

I've been plowing through FBWGG over and over again and it's so easy it's pathetic. Platinum is exactly what I need.
#43 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

I will attempt to play this some before Transformers comes out.

#44 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@N7: Geth are so Cheap at this point I don't think I can even try Platinum, Cerberus and Reapers combine would still be easier than Geth alone.

#45 Edited by N7 (3570 posts) -
@SmasheControllers: I see everyone say that Cerberus is the easiest but dem Phantom's always, and I mean ALWAYS totally fuck us up. I don't think I've played a single game of Cerberus without getting my salad tossed by them.
 
The concept of banshee's and phantom's and prime's running around on a difficulty higher than gold, is terrifying.
#46 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

@N7: Geth is stunlock central, not fun at all. I don't play Engi or Infl much so that could be an issue, Biotics and Weapons kill organics fast.

#47 Posted by N7 (3570 posts) -
@SmasheControllers: Oh yeah, I can totally see that. Makes a lot of sense.
#48 Posted by AngelN7 (2959 posts) -

They should make a map big enough to have a Harverster on it, have them land shoot at people and then leave to come back again in another wave , I'm hoping at some point they introduce new units that would be pretty cool, not a new enemy per se ( I still think brining other organics enemies or Terminus system mercs wouldn't make the challenges feel all that different) but there's room for Reaper reverse engineered Quarians and Drells (even if that didn't happen in the story) , new units for Cerberus and those squishy Geth from ME1 that stick to walls.

@SmasheControllers: Huh? Couldn't hear ya.:P

Anyway, Bioware dude at ComicCon said all weps and characters are rares not UR, confirmed on twitter too I heard. Anyway, the new footage from the show is looking very good. The new maps look pretty massive comparitively. That new engineer with the granade spamming canister looks too fun. Paladin class looks good too; awesome shield. Can't wait for this DLC to drop. Grinding up creds is tedious as hell though. Come on Tuesday.
