This weekend in Mass Effect 3, soldiers across the galaxy are being recruited for Operation Broadside, in a massive, widespread attack on the Reapers.
Operation Broadside gets underway on Friday, July 13th at 10:00 AM PT. The goals of the missions are as follows:
Squad Goal: Extract at least one squad member against Reapers on Gold difficulty
Allied Goal: Extract 400,000 squads against Reapers on ANY difficulty
Suceeding at the squad level will get each member in your squad a Commendation Pack. If the overall 400,000 squads are extracted safely, everyone will receive a Victory Pack. Operation Broadside wraps up on Sunday, July 15th at 10:00AM PT so don't miss out on your chance to deal the Reapers a crushing blow!
According to Xbox Live's Major Nelson, Mass Effect 3 will also be receiving a free multiplayer DLC add-on next week entitled Mass Effect 3: Earth. No details have been released from BioWare on this yet, but it is expected to launch on July 17th.
