- The MP affects Shepard's "Galactic Readiness" that leads up to the end fight.

- Kinect will not be utilized in the MP

- Servers are "bandwidth-friendly"

Weird how they make it sound like it's just on XBL, the multiplayer that is.

My hope is that you can do multiplayer elements solo, so that an individual can experience the complete game and won't need to do it with others.

I'm a bit divisive on whether or not playing these mp modes solo would be the right thing. It somehow seems fitting if it were to require multiple players, that way solo can just be reserved for the campaign. It's also nice to hear that you don't need to play the MP to get the best possible outcome.

I want to be able to do multiplayer solely because it offers the chance to play as a race and class that is otherwise not available in the single player game. I believe that something that big should be available to everyone and not just as a multiplayer element.

^That's a good point. Although my decision's basically up in the air, I just like the idea of the invisible wall between Single Player Campaign and MP modes. I just personally think if 1 player is to play the "horde mode" of ME3 as a different species, it sort of tarnishes what playing solo on Mass Effect 3 is all about imo-considering you won't have any dialouge options in mp.

So I HAVE to play the crappy looking multiplayer to get the real ending.

shinrock2261d ago

thats what im talking about.

coolbeans2261d ago

They've said since it's [MP] announcement that you don't have to touch the multiplayer in order to get the best ending.

tiffac0082261d ago

Oh! That's good to know, as long as the game doesn't force me to play the MP to get the best ending in SP then we're good to go.
