One of the biggest omissions of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, at least in my eyes, is the multiplayer support. The cooperative multiplayer component of Mass Effect 3 was excellent: small squads of players facing increasingly difficult waves of enemies in a variety of specifically built arenas, with optional objectives and a desperate ending for extraction. It’s a multiplayer mode that I really miss.
BioWare chose to remove the multiplayer support from the Legendary Edition, saying that the effort required to incorporate it was simply too great. “I think our focus was on a player’s experience and at some point we had to draw the line,” project director Mac Walters said in February. "I love the ME3 multiplayer, as I say people still play it today, but in the end I think the product, the ME: LE in general, is a better representation of the original trilogy because we can focus on those elements. single player ".
But there may be hope for those, like me, who would very much like to return it. In an interview with CNet, Walters said there is at least room for possibility.
"I would never say no, we want to see what kind of reception the Legendary Edition has and what the demand for multiplayer is," Walters said. "And then we'll ask ourselves if we have the resources and the time to raise it to the level of quality we want and the fans."
The "never say never" response style is almost uncompromising, but since that's all we have right now, I'll take it. And maybe I’m too optimistic, but I think it’s a real possibility, albeit a weak one. The exclusion of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer caused a real disappointment, and if interest in the game doesn’t wane in a week, maybe BioWare will decide that the best thing it can do for Mass Effect right now is give this one a try. great multiplayer. to shine.
