In a new interview with CNET, Mass Effect Legendary Edition director Mac Walters reveals some new information regarding the missing multiplayer from Mass Effect 3.
“I would never say no to that — we want to see what kind of reception the Legendary Edition gets and what the demand for the multiplayer is,”, Walters explains. “And then we’ll ask ourselves if we have the resources and time to bring it up to the quality level we and fans want.”
This comes as an exciting possibility for many fans. While Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer didn’t receive the attention of the campaign, it was praised by critics and players. The mode allowed up to 4 people to team-up to fight waves of enemies, while completing objectives along the way.
Earlier this year, when it was announced the mode would not be coming to Legendary Edition, there was backlash. Being one of the few things that was left out of this new remaster, many felt confused at the omission. However, with this news, it seems like things could be looking up.
The interview also mentioned a few other elements, such as the upcoming next-gen version’s performance and the initial, highly divisive response to the trilogy’s ending. It is an enjoyable interview, and definitely worth reading for any fans.
