Mass Effect 3 Rumored to Sport Four-Player Co-op

June 16, 2011 Written by Cameron Teague

It feels like every game out there is trying to add some kind of multiplayer experience to their product in an attempt to enhance value, and the next developer to jump on the multiplayer bandwagon might be BioWare with Mass Effect 3. According to a Eurogamer report, ME3 will feature a four-player co-op component when it releases next year.

A source told Eurogamer that the co-op mode will be a “standalone” component that is separate from the single-player campaign and will feature “competitive elements.” They likened it to the Horde mode in Gears of War where you kill waves after waves of enemies until you die.

A separate source told the site that BioWare Montreal was creating a Multiplayer Mass Effect experience that would either be a standalone game or an additional feature tacked on to Mass Effect 3. Just last week at E3, BioWare co-found Ray Muzyka said that they are “exploring multiplayer in all of our games and all of our franchises,” but “haven’t talked at all about multiplayer in the Mass Effect franchise.”

Would you like to see multiplayer added and if so, what kind of multiplayer mode do you think would fit best?
