Online pass confirmed for Mass Effect 3



1:00 PM on 10.12.2011

Well, what a surprise. No sooner is it confirmed that online multiplayer has been shoehorned into Mass Effect 3 do we get the real reason for the mode's existence ... an online pass. Yep, a redeemable code will be included with every new copy of the game. You can set your watch by this shit.

As always, used consumers will need to buy a code from EA if they want to play the tacked-on co-op mode that was detailed this week. I am going to hazard a guess and say that used consumers won't even be missing much this time around. Just a guess. 

On a personal note, I was accused of trolling when I had the gall to suggest that Mass Effect 3 would cram in an online mode in order to justify an online pass. Well ... look what happened. I think I'll cash those "I was right" chips in immediately and use them to buy a boat.
