BioWare Details “Operation Overwatch” Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Event

BioWare’s next multiplayer challenge for Mass Effect 3 has been announced and it’s harder than just killing X number of enemies within the weekend.

In order to win a Commendation pack in Operation Overwatch, players must complete an entire multiplayer mission but at least one member of your four-man squad must be one of the character classes released in the free Earth DLC pack.

While this in itself isn’t hard, getting the characters themselves could be a dilemma since Mass Effect 3’s booster packs work on a dice roll system.

If this doesn’t deter you, players across all platforms must work together to have 800,000 Earth class characters extracted alive in order to meet their goal. This is for any difficulty and hitting this goal will net all participants a Victory pack with more stuff.

This week’s multiplayer event will start on July 27 at 10:00 a.m. PDT and will run through to July 30 5:00 a.m. PDT.

Keep in mind that you need to have the DLC installed and have online feedback enabled to participate.

So, best to get that Earth character class now for the weekend, no?
