BioWare issues official statements on Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, in particular asking fans to hold off on overreacting until details are shared.
Megaton incoming? Color me intrigued.
I'm perfectly willing to give Bioware a chance to deliver something special. After being suspicious about AC: Brotherhood's multiplayer and discovering it to be a fine addition to the series I'm willing to wait and see what they're planning before making a rash judgement.
You aren't going to dismiss something before you've played it?! What on Earth is wrong with you?! I don't know how you do things where you're from, but here at N4G, we cancel our pre-orders and whine like little girls if a developer adds something a few of us don't like, even if it will have little to no effect on the sp!
Hehe, you win inter-bubbles. Oh, and a tip, DON'T got to the Bioware forums. It's bad, as in, really.
Amazing, one of the first comments that actually is open minded. WTF is wrong with people? Bioware gives fans more content, but somehow it is turned into a bad thing. Check out the complaints: a) Sequels are boring, they all do the same, but when developers do something new, gamers complain that the game no longer is what it used to be! b) Gamers complain about too expensive games and too little content/features. When developers give them more features, gamers complain it ain't more of the same! See a pattern here... everybody b!tches about something. Damned if you do, and damned if you don't!!!
Did anyone see some of the facebook comments......owch Anyway this will ruin the single player....all that wasted time on multiplayer when they could of added new features to ME3 to make it even more amazing. We'll find flaws in ME3 and everytime one pops up we'll think "If only they didn't tack on co-op" I give them a chance after ME to create a sequel that stays true to the last installment and then we got DA2....you've ran out of chances Bioware sorry
Yep, Bioware is S**t now, funny they use to be my favorite RPG devs. Lol The Witcher 1&2, has more RPG depth then their latest game (ME2, and DA2).
You know not to speak facts and talk bad about bioware on N4G. ME2 the most overrated game this generation.
You do know a separate Bioware team (Bioware Montreal) is developing the multiplayer right? The team that developed ME1 and ME2 (Bioware Edmonton) are focused solely on the single player story... http://social.bioware.com/f...
I wish they stay SP. Not everyone can play online.
Would watch you say on here Pikajew. If you say something like that you may be considerd "selfish" for having that opinion because it wouldn't be fair on multiplayer lovers who would like the feature in the game because they have online. /s Even though people can't call you for having a differen't opinion on this subject. Like how they wanted it in Bioshock 2, RE5, Dead Space 2 and Assassins Creed.....look how they turned out, not all bad like AC Brotherhood but it still felt tacked on if they could accomplish that game in a year imagine what it would of been liked without the online.
i must have missed the part were they said you cant play SP now.... or maybe the part were they said ANYTHING about how MP will work...
Getting that Bioshock 2 feeling. Do ME really need multiplayer? Did Bioshock 2 need really need multiplayer? I get I'm not/will not being/be force to play it, but I feel somethings just isn't necessary. Guess I better wait and see b4 casting it off.
But the company that made Bioshock didn't make Bioshock 2. A better example would be Dead Space 2, which got better reviews than Dead Space 1.
Sigh. Theyll just slap any game with multiplayer these days, huh.
Bioware I'm disappoint.
Canceling* over multiplayer? That seem just little extreme. Multiplayer is an addon. Now if Bioware start taking TONS of features away, I would probably/might cancel my order, nah I wouldn't b/c I want see the series through the end. *I know you said might.
it's mostly because developers think that EVERY GAME needs Multi-player and I'm kind of tired paying 60 bucks for a game that plays like exactly like the other five games a bought before it. Games are becoming the same derivative shit.
Because they're adding a big new feature, you're saying that you'll cancel your pre order because other games have this feature as well. Right...
I'm interested... See what they do with it. I'm sure the single player component of the game will be more than sufficient, anyway so I'm not worried at any rate.
Not to overeact? Too late lol
I'm one of the few who's excited over this news, glad they didn't let the the pessimist deter them from including something like this. Also, its co-op, even better. Can't wait for ME3 release.
Let me start by saying this, Uncharted dosen't need multiplayer, Dead Space 2 did not need it and Bioshock 2 did not need it why do all are games these days need tacked on MP, This is getting out of hand if I want MP ill put in my Black Ops, Resistance 3 or soon to be MW3 because I tell you this I refuse to play MP on these games, and I cant help but wonder how much more resources could be put toward the SP game, rather then waste it on MP! Bioware whats next MP on DragonAge Please dont add MP to Mass Effect 3 I love your games because of the story not for a frag fest!!!
I agree, not every game needs MP .. why not emphasize SP or even offline MP like the good old days when games were good.
What, like in the days of Baldur's Gate II. Hang on, that had MP as well, didn't it...
Bioware just posted an FAQ on the crapiplayer erm sorry multiplayer :- http://social.bioware.com/f... Not that impressed with the FAQ it smacks of "oh it won't affect things honest guys it won't and it will be really really good it really will it will be really really good". All I need now is confirmation that Mass Effect 3 will use EA's god awful Origin crap and that will be it. This really is getting beyond a joke.
well we all saw this coming when it has bene clearly seen that me3 is a third person shooter now...what would a third person shooter be without mp right? thank you console gamers for ruining another great franchise with mp, not only did you ruin dragon age, but now this, and da3 will probably have some kind of mp too. Some games are just better sp, like bioshock, dead space, me, dragon age, hitman...my god. This generation saddens me. Everyone needs that cod mp in it, if not, its a no buy.
Just joy at this news hope the get some friendly help from epic after the smoothness of gears 3 as they do use the engine im sure they would. Kind of wish it would be fps multi in the ME universe it would look nice but anything that extends my time in this game is win win singleplayer can get boring quick in any game im all about multi . Lol man u guys never stop epic whiners.
So will it be real multiplayer? Or just some online co-op? Would be pretty cool to have some sort of PVP mode.
funny how most people seem to hate something they know nothing about... or claim that the SP will be worse just because there is now Multiplayer, i dont recall Assasins Creed, Dead Space 2 or Uncharted's single player mode being any worse because of MP. Or how some people assume that just because they are developing MP, that somehow all resources are suddenly going that way, developers work in teams, i would say with a lot of confidence that there is an specific team dedicated to MP alone, that doesnt mean the rest of the teams suddenly stop working. Also considering that the game was supposed to come out this year but was delayed until march, its pretty safe to assume that this was one of the biggest reasons for it, but it also means that the single player portion had to be almost finished if they intended to release it this year, so its not like they wont have enough time to work on both.
Finally, what i would like for the MP, would be something like the the Uncharted CO-OP, that is to take some parts of the SP story and you can play them separately in CO-OP without affecting you progress in SP, maybe even have some exclusive missions for Co-op where you dont always need to have your squad with you, diferent routes or points to defend, etc
OPINIONS are like assholes. Everyone has one. Dead space, AC, and Bioschock are all shit with mp in it. There, i said it. An opinion. Just like yours.
Please don't fuck up the single player experience is all I ask...
Some people just like to complain, millions of people including myself are still going to buy it and enjoy it. I'm just glad the N4G folk have enough sense to agree with people defending Bioware and disagreeing with those who immedietly think the game will be bad because of it.
You disgust me...thumbs down and reported
You heard the guy, wait until wednesday to threaten to burn his house down! (in case you're wondering, I'm still buying it no matter what, I just have a sense of humor. if they were selling out and trying to pander to "mp idiots," wouldn't they have announced this back in January?) You know what I'm hoping for? That MP uses custom, non-human avatars. I wanna be a turian!
Bioware must be out of touch if they think games won't overreact. We are the most temperamental, negative, overly-critical, petulant, self-entitled, unappreciative and ignorant consumers in entertainment probably. If any of us acted like we do on forums in real life, we'd be pariahs and/or beat.
To those worried about the singleplayer being affected, it's worth remembering that Bioware are a freaking huge company, si I'd expect them to put a seperate team onto developing the online aspect of the game, and so the singleplayer shouldn't suffer for it. Again, I'll use Brotherhood as an example; Ubisoft had a second team to work on the multiplayer side of the game, and the result was the singleplayer was still awesome and it delivered on the multiplayer too.
