Although it has officially moved on from full-time Mass Effect 3 support, BioWare is still keeping an eye on the RPG’s multiplayer.

This feedback could help inform future Mass Effect multiplayer outings, should any be produced, so you potentially have a chance to help shape the franchise’s future.

Mass Effect writer Drew Karpyshyn has said filmmakers should focus on the story of humanity’s search for a place in the galaxy, which much more intrinsic to what the franchise is than, say, Tali or Garrus. Don’t shoot the messenger.

All three Mass Effect games are on sale on Origin, according to Joystiq. You can apparently grab all of them at about half-price, for a total of $25, and the sale is valid through March 12. I can’t find any mention of the offer on my end, which suggests it may be restricted to the US. The sale marks the third game’s one-year anniversary, as well as an end to DLC support.

Mass Effect 3′s latest N7 Bounty Weekend, Operation Impact, started yesterday.

Mass Effect 3′s latest N7 Bounty Weekend, Operation Firestorm, is live. In the event, the Reapers have changed their tactics to keep from being “whittled down.” As areas are conquered, their fighting groups become fewer yet larger, “making them more difficult to assail.” Your job is to deliver as much damage as possible before evacuation. The Squad Goal is to earn the “Killstreak 3” squad medal – kill five enemies together three separate times. The reward is a Commendation Pack. Get more details through here.

Mass Effect 3′s latest N7 Bounty Weekend, Operation Ballistic, is live.

Players can use the Assault Rifle, Heavy Pistol, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, or Submachine Gun to accomplish this. The reward is a Commendation Pack. Get more details through the link.

Mass Effect 3′s latest N7 Bounty Weekend, Operation Geronimo, is live. In the event, Reaper units are identifying and targeting medics, so training in battlefield medicine for all N7 soldiers has commenced – regardless of specialty. Players will be tasked with delivering emergency care on the battlefield, in order to “confuse and frustrate the Reapers into abandoning their strategy.” The individual goal this time out, is to earn any first aid medal on any map, at any difficulty. The reward is a Commendation Pack. Get more details through the link.

Mass Effect 3′s latest N7 Bounty Weekend, Operation Alamo, is live and it looks as though the Reapers are making a push for Menae. Alliance Intelligence seems to think the Reapers are luring the forces into “committing large-scale defenses to the moon that they will wipe out.” The counter-strategy is to insert small, stealth units in order to conduct disruptive offensives and hold the firebase. The team goal is to earn the “Survived 5 Waves” medal on the Firebase Condor map at any difficulty with extraction not required. The reward is a Commendation Pack. Get more information here.
