Mass Effect 3 is scheduled for a maintenance window tonight. The game’s Twitter feed advises that “impact should be minimal”, suggesting it might still be possible to play during the three hour session, which kicks off at midnight PST. It’s not clear what the maintenance will address although BioWare’s constant addition of new content to the near year-old multiplayer title has raised (my) hopes for a new DLC pack or set of classes, weapons and challenges.

The individual goal for the weekend is to extract twice: once as a base male human and once as a base female human on any map at any difficulty. The reward is a Commendation Pack.

The BioWare Blog advises that the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer is going on its annual hols from December 21, meaning there’ll be nobody to host N7 Bounty events on the weekends of December 28 and January 4. But before staff turn off the lights and put the chairs on the tables, it’s switched on all hazard maps, added two new card packs, and unlocked three new characters – the Drell Assassin, Batarian Slasher, and Volus Protector. Nice.
