Mass Effect 3 needs you once again to protect the universe against the vile scum out to destroy it. And this time, we’re taking the fight to our own backyard. Mass Effect 3: Earth, the new DLC dropping on July 17, takes players around the world to defend Rio De Janeiro, London, and Vancouver in three new maps.
This Mass Effect 3 DLC comes with a whole new lineup of elite N7 forces to protect civilization along with 12 new modification and 11 new upgrades to your gear. Older missions also get a touch up with a new mission objective that randomly occurs during waves three, six, and 10. You’ll need to play bodyguard to one of your teammates as you escort them to the designated extraction zone on each map. Singing Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You” while you do it is purely optional.
Along with all of that, players can risk it all in the new difficulty level, Platinum.
As we reported earlier, the DLC will come to you free of charge. With new characters, weapon mods, and maps all coming to you for nothing out of your pocket; there’s no reason not jump back into the fight July 17 and try to boost your galactic readiness once again.
