Mass Effect 3 "Operation Silencer" multiplayer Bounty Weekend announced

Called "Operation Silencer," this latest Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event challenges players to take down 3 million banshees between the dates of May 11, and May 14 (Friday to Monday.)

If the community can rally to take down that colossal number then everyone will be rewarded with a Victory Pack, though what's inside was not specified.

There's also a secondary goal with its own potential reward. Bioware is also offering a "Commendation Pack" to any squad that manages a full extraction against any enemy on Gold difficulty.

They also took the opportunity to send over a few statistics about multiplayer so far in Mass Effect 3. Among them are the interesting tidbits that 22.84 million multiplayer matches have been played since the game went online. Of which, only 10.5 million were successful extractions, and only 3.5% of successful extractions were on Gold difficulty.

    They're working with Sony to try and reward PS3 users for previous N7 Weekends too. As far as this weekend's goal, the collective player base managed to reach the goal of killing 3 million Phantoms last time.

    Too little too late. It's like fixing Skyrim 3 months after release... Guys wake up! We, PS3 players, move on when we get tired of being laughed at by other players who can enjoy the same game on a different platform, at a decent FPS and have their weekends operations without having Sony barring the events.

    Ending ruined it all. It was 10 minutes I can never take back. Then again maybe playing the very dull, clunky, and repetitive Mass Effect 3 multiplayer might help??? Nah.

    If you read the blog post it mentions vorcha in the same way the Resurgence post mentioned battlemasters, justicars, and geth. My guess is we're getting some unlockable vorcha soon... bets are off to whether it's going to be free or not.

    Still can't do it for PS3. So don't care.

    The last one was available for PS3. And looking over the actual announcement, so is this one.

    Someone missed the memo.
