Mass Effect 3 PS3 players given multiplayer bonuses

To make up for previous exclusion. 

PlayStation 3 owners of Mass Effect 3 will today be given reward packs from previous multiplayer weekend events.

Mass Effect 3's fortnightly multiplayer promotions have only been available to those playing on PC and Xbox 360. BioWare's Operation Exorcist, the last multiplayer event, allowed PlayStation 3 players to join in for the first time.

BioWare is now gifting PS3 gamers the reward packs given during the Operation Goliath and Raptor events. These can be claimed from the PlayStation Store today.

The move comes in time for this weekend's push, Operation Silencer. Rewards will be granted if the community manages to kill 3,000,000 banshees. Extra packs will be given to those who complete a map on gold difficulty with a full extraction.

The BioWare blog suggests that the fang-toothed vorcha could be the next race of playable characters to be added.

"This task is an onerous one," the blog noted, "and many of you are right to dread contact with these particular foes, but rest assured that we are prepared to reinforce your battalion with reserves. The vorcha want in, and as soon as they complete combined-arms training with our technically-skilled personnel, we will let them loose."

A fresh infographic of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer stats revealed that 22.84 million matches have now been played, with 10.5 million successful missions. 1.38 million credits have been spent in multiplayer, while the new geth classes are used in 11.8 per cent of missions.
