View Full Version : Mass Effect 3 figures to come with multiplayer DLC

01-24-12, 02:00 PM
It looks like Mass Effect 3‚?≤s multiplayer mode will be getting extra DLC after launch, and Bioware will be offering a new way to get it. A series of toy store adverts spotted on Eurogamer (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-01-23-mass-effect-3-action-figures-to-come-with-exclusive-dlc) show off a series of Mass Effect figures. Each one comes with a code that will unlock extra bits and pieces for Mass Effect 3‚?≤s new co-op mode.

The randomised codes ‚??could include powerful new weapons and new characters,‚?? according to a post on the Bioware store (http://biowarestore.com/mass-effect/mass-effect-accessories/series-1-action-figure-four-pack), or they could contain ‚??character boosters, weapon modifications, and weapon upgrades to make your multi-player squad stronger.‚??

The four figures can be pre-ordered ahead of shipment in April/May for $75.on the Bioware site. The Big Bad Toy Store (http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=DCC11280&mode=retail) has eight figures listed available for $17.99 each including Shepard, Tali, Thane, Garrus, Legion, Miranda, Mordin and Grunt. If you have $650 knocking about, there‚??s also a full size replica of a Mass Effect assault rifle (http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TRF10003&mode=retail) which I‚??m going to immediately click away from to protect my bank balance.

Bioware haven‚??t announced their DLC plans for Mass Effect 3 yet, but I‚??d be surprised if the weapons and upgrades supplied with the figures weren‚??t available as DLC after release. Retailers have already been outlining their pre-order bonus packages for Mass Effect 3 (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/01/05/mass-effect-3-pre-order-bonuses-include-bonus-armour-rifles-shotguns/), which will include extra armour and weapons for ME3‚?≤s single player campaign. The game‚??s due out on March 6 in the US, March 8 in Australia and March 9 in Europe.
