BioWare's issued a briefing on its next
Mass Effect 3 N7 Bounty Weekend, assigning Alliance forces to put
down an army of Cerberus's sneakiest unit, and keep a squad together
through the toughest missions.
Entitled Operation Exorcist, the
multiplayer promotion runs this Friday at 6pm (PST) until Monday,
April 30, at 5am (PST). Collectively, BioWare is challenging the ME3
online community to kill 1,000,000 of Cerberus's ninja-like Phantoms.
Individually, it's daring entire squads to stay alive until
extraction on any map set on Gold difficulty.
All players who participate in the N7
Bounty Weekend will receive a free Victory Pack, assuming the Phantom
purge is successful. Meanwhile, teams who achieve their Gold map goal
will limp away with a Commendation Pack.
Unfortunately, PS3 soldiers will have
to watch the fun from the sidelines yet again, as Sony has yet to
greenlight the ME3 N7 Bounty Weekends on the PlayStation Network.
There is word this might change for future ME3 multiplayer weekends (read: ME3's next N7 Bounty Weekend teased, Sony “working” on PS3 inclusion),
but for now it appears Operation Exorcist is an Xbox 360 and PC-only party.
