Bioware has been hinting at a large announcement for their Sci-fi, RPG, shooter, that is set to drop October 25th in the latest issue of XBox world. It has been speculated that that announcement will be the multiplayer component of Mass Effect 3. The case for it is growing stronger as a pre-order bonus has been discovered that mentions an online multiplayer pass.
As you can see from the image below this almost certainly confirms the forthcoming announcement as it is a feature that has been requested by many of the fans. Now, we could only speculate if that will mean full on co-op or would it be more competitive play, with the usual deathmatches and capturing of flags. Nothing will be confirmed until Bioware says so, as even this pre-order flyer could have easily been photoshopped.
