Mass Effect 3: Operation Overdrive starts tomorrow

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 4 October 2012 15:18 GMT

Mass Effect 3’s latest multiplayer event, Operation Overdrive, starts tomorrow and will run through the weekend.

Based on intel recovered during Operation Patriot, “a massive strike from the Reapers on multiple fronts” is expected.

This time around, information officers and special-ops teams stationed behind enemy lines require immediate extraction.

Squad Goal includes full extraction on any map at any difficulty in 20 minutes or less and the squads can be any size.

The Allied Goal is to complete 200,000 extraction waves on any difficulty with any size squad. Full extraction is not required.

There are no special circumstances this time out, and Squad goal success will garner everyone a Commendation Pack. Allied goal success will award everyone a Victory Pack.

The Operation Overdrive Bounty Weekend runs from October 5 through October 7.
