Commander Shepard is back in action in Mass Effect 3 new multiplayer trailer, Special Forces. BioWare recently released the new multiplayer trailer showcasing the ability for players to choose their own race for online play. The new feature allows for a more diverse style of gameplay for a previously campaign-only franchise.
The introduction of the multiplayer mode has ruffled some ME fans feathers (not this one), but since the release of the Special Forces trailer is has seemed to quiet some of the skeptics. Players will be able to choose between humans, Turians, Quarians, Krogans, Drells, Salarians, and Asari races for their online character. There will also be a large emphasis on player’s class choice. Classes include: Solider, Infiltrator, Vanguard, Engineer, and Sentinel each one has its own unique abilities allowing players to adapt their character according to their desired gameplay.
Like any multiplayer feature, and in true Mass Effect-fashion, the trailer hints at a strong emphasis of teamwork and ability to use each race/class to their fullest potential in order to create the strongest team possible.
The Special Forces trailer presents fans with slight teaser to one of Mass Effect 3’s most-talked about new additions, the Omni-blade. Yes, the Omni-tool just got that much more awesome. It will be a melee feature for gamers and looks like each class will feature their own unique Omni-tool weapon.
In the campaign, players will reprise the role of Commander Shepard who will have to defend the Earth from an imminent Reaper invasion. So far, word off the BioWare street is the game will begin with Shepard on trial for the “questionable” acts that took place during the Arrival mission (DLC for Mass Effect 2-highly recommended if you plan on buying Mass Effect 3).
Mass Effect 3 is planned for a March 6 release. For those who can quite wait, the demo will be out February 14 (with Kinect capabilities).
