Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer?

#1 Posted by PalmettoBling (23 posts) -

I am still very skeptical about Mass Effect 3 having any multiplayer component, but I'm not a little less skeptical after having played Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer.  It's possible to not be complete garbage and a bit of fun if they just deviate from the standard a bit (or a lot).

I just wish they could of saved the multiplayer stuff till after the Shepard trilogy was finished with.

This. 
 
The core Mass Effect experience has always been about your own personal adventure in this massive universe (canvas) in which they allow you to form your own version of the main storyline. Putting a multiplayer component on top of that just feels... off.

mass effect 3 multiplayer is not confirmed

I just want an epic single player campaign that is longer than 22 hours (it took me less than a week to finish ME2).

Even if they tack on the worst multiplayer component ever, I won't care. I'll probably just play single player.

Why are people thinking there is a multiplayer? They have not confirmed it at all. Where did these rumors come from?

Whatever, if it's good then it's good. If not we're still getting Mass Effect 3 which is all that matters.

EA loves multiplayer.

If the multiplayer is COOP then that's great. No more dumass squadmates and my reputation will not be tarnished by shit AI.

And player choice becomes very hard to do. If its somehow done well it'd be cool though.

I do not want it to have MP. ME should be a single player series and that is that.

Pfft.
 
Two things. Multiplayer is NOT confirmed. Multiplayer components in most games aren't mandatory. Stick to the single player game. ?Ignore it (if it's there!)
 
Don't like it? Don't play it. The only reason I would be mad at the inclusion of multiplayer is if it was later revealed that instead of making the single player great, they focused on the multiplayer.
 
Chill it.

I really doubt there'll be a multiplayer component. There'd be no reason for it. I expect at some point we'll see a multiplayer Mass Effect title, though after Shepard's trilogy is done.

Well there's no need for player choice for COOP players taking control of squadmates. The way I meant to explain the COOP (which I know I barely explained it very well at all, my bad there) would be that you only take control of squadmates in gameplay and everyone can view the conversation wheel and cutscenes etc but otherwise yeah they'd just replace the bad AI in the way I'd imagine.

@Garrus:  If that's how they handle co-op, with 1 'leader' and 2 other buddies taking over from crummy AI, that would be sweet. Super sweet.

Yeah, if that's how they do it, I'd probably hop straight in to Multiplayer.

I really really hope not.

I would rather have Mass Effect MMO than multiplayer in ME3. I want to work my way up the Turian military and get my own ship and crew, fun times.

I hope not.

Not confirmed at all and I really doubt it. I mean, come on, think about it! Its not meant to be in the game at all. its a single player experience that really, my guess, will stay that way.  
 
Mass Effect immerses you in the universe, not through some tacked on multiplayer.
