Bioware has confirmed that Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer DLC, in the form of new maps after release, will be free. The news comes in the form of a tweet by Aaryn Flynn, the general manager for Bioware. In response to fans’ questions about whether DLC maps will be free like they were in Mass Effect 3, he replied: “It’s going to be just like ME3”. Mass Effect 3 featured 5 additional upgrades over its life, including new enemies, maps, characters, weapons, and difficulty levels, all for free, so it’s good to see that Bioware will be doing the same with the latest iteration of the Mass Effect franchise.

We’ve seen very little of the Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer side of the game, but it will be playable at this weekend’s PAX East. Even so, this little nugget of information makes the prospect of playing the multiplayer alongside the main game all the more appealing, especially considering that you can earn rewards for your single-player campaign by playing the multiplayer. What do you think of this news? Will this entice you to sample the multiplayer side of Mass Effect Andromeda? Or were you going to do that anyway? Let us know in the comments below.
