Continuing their trend of operations that are single-player-centric in their objectives, BioWare has announced Operation: Firestorm as this weekend’s Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event. A description of the event, rewards, and its backstory is below:
Event Description: The Reapers have changed their tactics in an effort to prevent us from whittling them down. As they conquer rural areas, their fighting groups are fewer but larger, making them more difficult to assail. Accordingly, we are hitting them in the cities to deliver as much damage as possible before evacuation.
Squad Goal: Earn the “Killstreak 3” squad medal. (As a squad, kill 5 enemies together 3 separate times.)
Reward: Commendation Pack
Operation: Firestorm commences today and runs until February 3rd, 2013.
