New Trailer & New Specifics Released For Mass Effect 3’s Rebellion Pack

May 29, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

BioWare has released a new trailer for and new details about Mass Effect 3‘s Rebellion Pack for the game’s online multiplayer mode, available for free beginning today for ME3 owners who redeemed their online passes.

First is the new objective, called Retrieve. Players will be tasked with bringing supplies in the field to various locations on the map. The supply carrier will be slowed down, thus making teamwork and carrier protection a necessity to complete the objective.

BioWare also revealed some stats and abilities for the new characters coming to multiplayer:

  • Vorcha Soldiers/Sentinels will have 250/250 Shields, Bloodlust/Melee, Increased Mobility, and Regeneration.
  • Male Quarian Infiltrators/Engineers will have 600/600 Shields, Combat Leap, and Disruptor Omni-Blade.
  • Phoenix (Ex-Cerberus) Vanguards/Adepts will have 500/500 Barrier, Combat Roll, and Cerberus Lash.

The following descriptions were given to the new weapons in multiplayer:

Reegar Carbine
The Reegar Carbine is an Electrical weapon, best used at close range. Named for the Quarian Reegar family, whose marines have served valiantly against the Geth, this electrical weapon improves upon the arc pistol’s design by generating a sustained current to its target.

Krysae Sniper Rifle
The Krysae is a Heavy turian sniper rifle with explosive rounds and an automatic scope for all-range fighting. This turian anti-material rifle is modified to kill Reaper enemies. The Krysae’s scope uses a rangefinder that adjusts to keep the target in proper proportion to the shooter, which comes in useful when the sniper is forced into close range. Its specialized ammunition is both armor-piercing and explosive. In a desperate move, the turians released its specifications over the extranet so that nearly anyone with a fabricator could manufacture this weapon to help the war effort.

Harrier Assault Rifle
Full-auto heavy rifle, low recoil but high heat generation. These Cerberus-modified Mattock rifles are fully automatic. Cerberus gunsmiths refined the recoil issues, resulting in a gun that stays on target but delivers slightly less punch per round than a standard Mattock. As such, the weapon is typically utilized by Cerberus’s elite troops, who train constantly to make every burst count.

Finally, the new Gear slot on the Equipment screen allows players to equip gear that will upgrade their abilities for as long as it remains equipped. Players can switch gear between missions to make sure they’ve got appropriate upgrades. Each piece of gear can be upgraded up to four times through Reinforcement Packs and 19 pieces of gear will be included in the Rebellion Pack.
