More Mass Effect 3 multiplayer details emerge

Mass Effect 3

BioWare has dished out some more information surrounding Mass Effect 3‘s four-player co-op multiplayer missions, including playable races and its affiliation with EA’s Online Pass.

Since players won’t be able to take on the role of Commander Shepard and his crew in the multiplayer, they’ll instead be allowed to choose their own character from a list of classes and races. Those races playable for the mode will be Human, Krogan, Asari, Drell, Salarian, and Turian.

However, anyone who wants to experience the four-player co-op will have to either buy Mass Effect 3 new or pay extra. The game’s Galaxy at War system, which includes the multiplayer, will require a Mass Effect 3 Online Pass that can be acquired by entering a code found in any new copy of the game or purchased online via Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation Network.

To hear more about the multiplayer from Executive Producer Casey Hudson himself, simply scroll below and check the developer’s statements themselves in the latest edition of BioWare Pulse.

Mass Effect 3 will release on March 6, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
