A job listing reveals that Mass Effect developer BioWare Montreal is looking for a multiplayer programmer.
Mass Effect 3 will have multiplayer I guess
Al Troll:Why? Me:Because they are looking to make ME a MP experience: Al Troll:Why am I such a troll? Me:Because you lack any mental brain power.
I'm a troll because I think a game as good as Mass Effect doesn't need multi player? Nice logic.
Why couldn't they make it multiplayer?
Perhaps it's simply co-op like with Fable II and not a full on "Gears" type shooter mode?
Well, they do make games that don't start with an "Mass" and end with a "effecT". Maybe they'll make something brave and original!!
Oh, this is giving me quite the cynic's headache.
They need to speak to Zipper cause Mag is short for magic when it comes to multiplayer server.
Gotta love MAG... gotta hate TKer that knife your squadmates in the back.
With Mass Effect's gameplay, I thought they would have put multiplayer in already!
worked great for BioShock 2.....oh wait....nevermind. FOCUS ON SP DEV'S!!! FFS!!!
The only thing i can think of is instead of the NPC teammates they will be playable characters if its done right people will love it.
Maybe something like horde mode?
I hope not for ME3 except coop. otherwise ME needs no multiplayer!
Yeah, as long as it is only for coop
I felt the same way about Uncharted, yet they pulled it off in U2. Anything can happen. You can always NOT play the multiplayer portion of the game & just the single player. Just a thought.
coop is okay but dont go putting in mp just because you think you should. ME has always been about the single player campaign and ive seen far too many great single player games turn into average because they have to screw around with multiplayer. fans sure didnt ask for it.
Agreed. Mass Effect is really personal experience. I believe it has nothing to do with ME.
Multiplayer would be unwelcome in ME for me. ME is all about the single player. Even Coop would ruin it. BTW I accidentally gave you a disagree when I meant to click Agree.
Mass Effect does not need MP.
People get to crazy over this stuff This is bioware I sure what ever they are doing is going to be great be it MP or Co-op
It's EA games' influence. Probobly so they can shift their '$10 solution' thing upon it. Totally unecessary concept.
CO-OP MP could be a bit dangerouse, but who knows mybe they can pull it off
I am going to pick up Mass Effect 1 soon, then going to ME2 and ending with Mass Effect 3.
I Can't wait to play mass effect on my PS3
sucks the other titles didn't come to PS3. who really knows though
What's up with all these duplicate stories here lately? http://n4g.com/news/532705/...
It's been like this since the new site launched. I'd say at least half of pending are dupes at any given moment, and usually they're approved because people just wanna clear that mess out.
Mass Effect 2 is one of the most critically acclaimed games this year, but that level of acclaim wasn't reflected well in its sales. I think that Bioware wants to add some appeal to the multiplayer gamers on 360 by adding an online mode.
It seems people want multiplayer in these games but rarely play it. I say its a waste of resources, just like Bioshock 2.
I say just add 4 player online coop.
I kind of liked the fact that Mass Effect was single player and the thought that 3 will be multi bothers me because the things I liked about 1 and 2 might not work well in multi. I mean if it's co op how does the dialog and choices you make work? Who gets to be in charge of where you go and when? What about the ending outcome or who dies and lives? If it's not co op and they are making a versus mode is that really something that would make the game better? It didn't for most games like Bioshock or Resident Evil. I've played ME 1 and 2 a few times through and never once did I think that the game needed multiplayer or that it would some how make the game better... I hope I'm wrong though because I would hate for the whole trilogy to be ruined by a lackluster ending.
