“Mass Effect 3” multi-player – new info

I posted a story the other day about “Mass Effect 3” and the apparent dipping of its Krogan toe into the muddy intergalactic realms of multi-player.

Wouldn’t you know it? There’s only more info out there on the Inter Webs.

Rather than shoe-horning the “Mass Effect” franchise into some misbegotten, generic Team Deathmatch and Capture The Flag-based mode malarkey, BioWare seem to be going the game design route less travelled, with the reveal of a multi-player campaign which can also influence aspects of your single-player Fem Shep play through.

Yes, my FemShep does look like Rachel Weisz. What of it?

Here, let BioWare explain it to you (via your friends and mine at Eurogamer).

There’s an IOS game and Facebook integration, too, but these appear to be optional add-ons rather than a necessity – which will be good cheer to those of us who would rather chew off our own toenails than faff about with social network.

As with every game now in release, there’s the “Project $10”-style online pass to activate with new copies or which must be purchased if you pick up a second-hand copy of the game.

I will now commence a robust programme of Fan Boy squeeing whilst I wait for the game.  It passes the time.
