One of the first articles we published in 2011 was a piece on how the 2011 gaming year was hell bent on devouring your free time for lunch leaving you begging for mercy. 2011 was one of the best years ever to be a gamer, and it will be an incredibly long time before we ever experience anything like it again. But enough about 2011, those games are old news right? Take a quick look at some of the games we’re looking forward to the most this year (Q1).
Hopefully everyone is enjoying an action packed E3 extravaganza this week! For those of us at home who are still enjoying the tactical bliss that is Mass Effect multiplayer, we have some new info about this weekend’s community challenge. Unlike the “kill” and “promote” objectives we’ve seen in the past, Operation Mastiff will require the community to complete 100,000 delivery missions which is the new objective added with the free Rebellion pack. Players also must complete a silver level extraction in order to in order to receive their commendation packs for the week. Once again, I’m happy that ME3:MP is still going strong and can’t wait to see what the team cooks up next.
Operation MASTIFF (June 8th-10th)
We are dropping the new reinforcements onto occupied worlds to supplement resistance movements. Retrieving data of how the Reapers conquered those worlds is of paramount importance.
Allied Goal: Complete 100K retrieval missions.
Personal Goal: Extraction on Silver difficulty with one squad member of the Rebellion Pack classes: Vorcha, Phoenix Project Defectors, or Quarian Male.
Special Circumstance: None.
Completion of the personal goal awards that player a Commendation Pack.
Completion of the Allied goal awards all players a Victory Pack that has a guaranteed N7 weapon.
Operation Mastiff begins at 6pm PST Friday June 8th and ends at 4am PST Monday June 11th.
Packs will be distributed Tuesday evening if the mission is successful.
