In a recent post on their blog, BioWare announced the newest event for the multiplayer portion of Mass Effect 3. Unlike most events that are full-on assaults, this one is geared more towards finesse and discretion on the side of the players; it should prove to be an interesting change of pace.
You can read below for all of the pertinent information; the event is scheduled to run from today until Sunday, October 7th.
Based on intel recovered during Operation PATRIOT, we are anticipating a massive strike from the Reapers on multiple fronts. Our information officers and special-ops teams stationed behind enemy lines require immediate extraction.
Squad Goal: Full extraction on any map at any difficulty in 20 minutes or less. Squads can be any size.
Allied Goal: Complete 200,000 extraction waves on any difficulty. Squads can be any size. Full extraction not required.
Special Circumstance: None
Squad Goal Success: All squad members awarded a Commendation Pack
Allied Goal Success: All players awarded a Victory Pack
