EA made a big announcement at a conference just a short while ago, but it's still under wraps.
Sigh...I'm worried about hearing MP news. I'll be fair to wait until I see what the final product offers, but I still hate the idea of all resources (possibly) not being used on the singleplayer.
Considering the size of Bioware I'd expect them to have used a seperate team to develope the multiplayer aspect. I'm worried, of course, about a multiplayer aspect, but I'm willing to give them the benefeit of the doubt, though I hope they steer clear of a straight Deathmatch formula as the shooting isn't up to a high enough standard for that from what I've played.

No, Bioware, I have not been eagerly awaiting a multiplayer announcement. In fact, I was hoping it wouldn't happen.
I agree, but you have to understand that Bioware, is no longer concerned about the RPG gamer anymore. Their goals now is to woo the Action-Shooter gamer. You know, the Gears of War/Uncharted gamer. So for THOSE fans, yes, this is news that they have been waiting for. You have to look at it from that perspective.
Im a Gears fan and it saddens me that Bioware is going away from the RPG elements. If there is going to be a MP, it will be a bad version of Gears. Drop in Co-op would be awesome though.
"You have to look at it from that perspective." That's what I'm thinking. There's not enough money in a niche RPG market. That's probably how they look at it. Nevertheless, don't expect me to still call BioWare the best RPG devs. They aren't and I'm sure they don't even want the title anymore.
I bought Mass Effect 1 FOR it's RPG elements, not shooting. This game isn't supposed to be like Uncharted or Gears of War. If they want a game like them, they should then make a new IP.
Co-op would be cool. Drop in, Drop out.

I bet it's online multiplayer or co-op.
Which isn't THAT bad if they can pull it off and won't use the singleplayer resources while doing it. My only hope is that they don't add something like deathmatch mode.
Agreed, I was also hoping it couldve been some story element or new character etc. But its EA
Speaking of resources, if there is a MP it better be on a seperate disc. If they cut singleplayer content for MP im going to be pissed.
I certainly hope their isn't any MP in the game. I won't be playing it if there is either. Just want ME3 for the PC.
I think its much more likely to be co op than MP.
if it's co-op, f*ck yeah! if MP, f*ck off!
Co-op is already confirmed so im guessing its multiplayer. Ive heard rumors of multiplayer and i really believe they will include it. At first i didnt like the idea but it could potentially be amazing. I love tps and a gears like multiplayer with biotics as perks could be really fun. I just want the campaign to have the same focus as the others then have a seperate team add the co-op missions and multi. Might as well add a hoard mode with husks leading up to bigger enmies and bosses. Its perfect for a squad of 4 just make it with 50 waves and bosses every 5 or 10. Mass Effect is a rpg like dues ex so it doesnt need these things but i feel like it would give so much replayability and fun after you beat it why not.
Devil's advocate here: but what if the MP was amazing? ..ok it probably wouldn't be...but just sayin' I've loved stuff I thought I'd hate, and hated things I thought I'd love more times than I can count.
Please no MP, hopefully something cool, like the return of the Mako. I know some people hated it, but I loved driving around all the different planets and exploring.
I don't want MP.
Then don't play it. Problem solved.
Reveals of Grunt, Legion, Miranda & Thane as perma squaddies please!
Legion is so underrated. It already been confirmed that he'll play a major role in ME3. I hope Thane is cured!
I know Legion's in the game, but he better be a perma teammate. Thane should either be cured in-game or go out saving the Normandy.
The news I would rather hear right now is that Bioware is going to patch the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2!
Horde mode in bound....
Lesbian Tali? Lesbian Tali.
I hope that a PS3 version of Mass effect 1 is announced. I know it's next to impossible but I can dream can't I? Like most of the commenters here I think it will be MP as well. Sigh. Not every game needs MP. Did the MP in Dead space 2, Assassin's creed: Brotherhood, Uncharted 2 or Bioshock 2 make them better games? No. MP is a waste of time for the most part. Leave MP for the meathead fps games and keep them out of games whose main draw is the SP.
