New N7 Challenge: OPERATION RESURGENCE Announced

#1 Edited by AmericanNinja (157 posts) -

Operation BEACHHEAD eased the pressure on allied planets and freed up conventional forces that were being hammered by the Reapers. With these reinforcements, the allies can use RESURGENCE to target more critical infrastructure.

Anyone who has the Resurgence Pack multiplayer DLC operational during this weekend will be granted a Reserves Pack. A Reserves Pack unlocks one of the new random alien classes guaranteed.

All participating squads will earn +10% additional experience when playing on the Resurgence expansion’s new maps, Firebase: Condor and Firebase: Hydra.

Welcome to Operation Resurgence, the next N7 Challenge Weekend!

This week we released our first multiplayer expansion, the Resurgence Pack. This DLC added new maps, characters, weapons, and consumables. If you haven’t had a chance to download it yet, make sure to grab it; it’s available for no additional charge.

Firebase Condor and Firebase Hydra are available immediately. If you download the Resurgence Pack and play this weekend you will be rewarded with a Reserves Pack the following week, containing one new Resurgence character.

This Operation is currently available to Xbox 360 and PC users only, and will run from Friday, April 13th at 5PM PST to Monday, April 16th 5AM PST. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to offer our Multiplayer Challenge weekends on PlayStation 3. Sony has not yet approved the promotion. We continue to work with them to find a compromise, but until then, Sony will not allow us to run the same Multiplayer Challenges on the PlayStation 3 that we run on Xbox 360 and PC.

Please remember to set “Upload Gameplay Feedback” to “on” in the online options to be able to participate in Operation Resurgence.

Some people believe that PSN cannot collect data from the EA servers and send it back to Bioware to see if they achieved the goal.

Did it occur to people the problem maybe a bug or some other technical issue Bioware introduced that is PS3 specific? No one knows but I can't fault any vendor for rejected a patch that they believe makes a situation worse even if competitors went ahead.

Kind of a bummer that it's not actually a challenge. Exp is kinda pointless IMHO, it's all 'bout them phat credits and packs.

Sony has not allowed any of the weekend events it seems. I doubt every single one of them was somehow only broken on PS3.

Hm, I could have sworn one weekend I saw a special thing (off the top of my head a weekend with less reapers). I was under the impression the delays were due to technical where players are falling out of sync or glitching the maps when they use powers which I did hear about a little last night.
