April 6, 2012
BioWare has announced free new multiplayer DLC for Mass Effect 3. Available on April 10th, the Resurgence Pack will offer two new maps known as Firebase Condor, which takes place on one of Palaven's moons, and Firebase Hydra, which brings players to an abandoned quarian colony.
In addition to the maps, new weapons, consumables and characters will also be unlockable via reinforcement packs in the game's multiplayer store. New weapons include the Striker Assault Rifle, Kishock Harpoon Gun and Geth Plasma SMG. The following new consumables will also be available:
Strength Enhancer - Applies a melee damage boost for one mission
Targeting VI - Applies a headshot damage boost for one mission
Stabilization Module - Stabilizes weapons while firing and moving for one mission
Shield Power Cells - Shortens shield recharge time for one mission
The pack will also feature six new characters, including the Asari Justicar Adept, Krogan Battlemaster Vanguard, Batarian Soldier, Batarian Sentinel, Geth Engineer and Geth Infiltrator. Interestingly, this list matches the DLC content that was leaked to Facebook last month.
The Resurgence Pack will be available on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Origin. It will remain free until April 12, 2014. For more on ME3's multiplayer, be sure to check out all of the info in our Mass Effect 3 multiplayer wiki.
