If you're still taking the fight to the Reapers with your friends in the multiplayer for Mass Effect 3, you'll be happy to know that the new "Earth" downloadable content has been released today for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 (Europeans with the PS3 version will get the update tomorrow, July 18; all other versions release worldwide today). The free update adds new characters, weapons and maps as well as the new "Platinum" difficulty setting.
I haven't played the multiplayer since shortly after the game's launch, but I don't think it was ever going to be a long-term love affair with me. And this isn't going to get me to come back either, but it does seem like a rather healthy amount of content and you can't argue with the price.
