BioWare is inviting players to save the Milky Way Galaxy this weekend. They're hosting another Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Weekend, dubbed Operation Exorcist, that will begin on Friday, April 27th at 6PM PST.
During Operation Exorcist, players are challenged to survive until extraction on any map on Gold difficulty. You'll earn a Commendation Pack for accomplishing this feat. The wider community must also work together to kill a total of 1,000,000 Cerberus Phantoms. All players will be granted Victory Packs if the goal is met.
As usual, you need to enable "Upload Gameplay" feed in the online options menu to take part in the event. Also, in keeping with tradition, this multiplayer weekend will only be available on the Xbox 360 and PC. Sony and BioWare are said to be working together to bring the multiplayer weekends to the PS3.
BioWare used to host multiplayer weekends every week. However, they decided to space the events out a bit more.
"Moving forward we will be offering our N7 Operations every other weekend," said BioWare's Chris Priestly. "We realize that we have thousands of N7 operators, and this new cadence will allow us to create and execute the best possible Operations for the community."
Mass Effect 3's multiplayer is a series of standalone co-op missions. A team of four players works together against waves of Cerberus, Reaper, or Geth forces. Once a player has gotten a multiplayer character up to level 20, they can "promote" them into their single-player campaign to boost their Galactic Readiness.
Operation Exorcist will conclude on Monday, April 30th at 5AM PST.
