Mass Effect 3 Operation Shieldwall adds Banshees to everything

Thursday, 24 May 2012 02:53 GMT By Brenna Hillier

During the last Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event, players were charged with taking down 3 million banshees. They failed. And now there are banshees everywhere.

As detailed on the BioWare Blog, this weekend’s Operation Shieldwall debuts a new “special circumstance”:

“Due to the failure of Operation SILENCER, more banshees will spawn with Reaper enemies and might also spawn with other enemies.”

I don’t know whether to be excited or terrified.

The operation’s overall goal is to promote 50,000 characters, which will reward all participants with a Victory Pack including a high chance at a rare weapon.

There’s also a squad goal to promote three characters, which will give your whole crew a Commendation Pack.

The operation kicks off on Friday, May 25 at 6:00PM PT until Sunday, May 27 at 5:00PM PT.

The operation is available to all three platforms, although you’ll have to make sure you’ve got “upload gameplay feedback” switched on. PlayStation 3 players won’t see a screen announcing the special event but BioWare was quick to reassure users that it’s a known issue and won’t effect rewards or participation.

Do try to pass this one, comrades – there’s some suggestion that a planned surprise DLC expansion was yanked after we failed to take down the blue scourge. Don’t you want to play as a Vorcha? I do. KEEEEL YOUUU.

Thanks, GameInformer.
