After weeks of rumors, BioWare officially confirmed the next multiplayer DLC that will be coming for Mass Effect 3, titled “Earth”. Available on July 17th for Xbox 360 and PC. Playstation 3 users in North America will be able to dive in to the DLC the same day, with those in Europe waiting until the 18th.
The Earth Pack will add “mods, gear, and new maps for Rio, Vancouver, and London,” as advertised on BioWare’s blog; as well as a new difficulty: Platinum. Three new weapons and six new human N7 classes will be unlockable in existing Reinforcement Packs (bought with credits or real money).
Just like with the past multiplayer packs–Resurgence and Rebellion–Earth will be available at no additional charge.
If you’re not busy this weekend and want to hit up ME3‘s multiplayer to save credits for the free DLC, be sure to participate in “Operation: Broadside“, which began July 13th and will end on July 16th.
