Want to hear a cool internet rumor? Mass Effect 3 will feature a four-player co-op mode. The rumor comes via Eurogamer, who says the online-enabled co-op mode is "standalone" and will feature "competitive elements." To the relief of fans of the series, the co-op mode will reportedly not compromise the single player campaign.
Officially, BioWare is not talking about the four-player mode. When asked about the mode at E3, BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka said, "We haven't talked at all about multiplayer in the Mass Effect franchise, but we're exploring multiplayer in all of our games and all of our franchises... The short answer is we have no comment on that. But we're interested in the idea of multiplayer."
What do you think of the possibility of multiplayer in Mass Effect 3? Is it a selling point for the game, or unnecessary trend-chasing on the part of BioWare?
