"Mass Effect 3: Earth" is an appropriately titled upcoming add-on for the game that brings multiplayer to Firebase Rio, Firebase Vancouver, and Firebase London. Fatigue might be kicking in by now, but this content will be free to download when it arrives on July 17 in North America and in Europe a day later.
In addition to those locations, "Earth" includes a selection of N7 characters -- the Demolisher Engineer, Destroyer Soldier, Fury Adept, Sentinel Paladin, Shadow Infiltrator, and Slayer Vanguard -- plus new modifications and upgrades. The N7 Piranha Shotgun, N7 Typhoon Assault Rfile, and Acolyte Pistol are being added to the weapon list.
Perhaps more interestingly, this DLC introduces a Platinum difficulty to Mass Effect 3's multiplayer and also a new mission objective centered around protecting and escorting a designated target. That'll appear randomly on waves 3, 6, and 10, going forward. Are you still enjoying this stuff?
There are new details on Mass Effect 4, but all anyone cares about is the damn Mako
