Mass Effect 3: Operation Fortress Offers 25% Extra XP This Weekend

Posted on March 23, 2012 AT 09:31am

THE BUZZ: BioWare is offering 25 percent extra XP in Mass Effect 3′s multiplayer this weekend, as part of Operation Fortress.

The official description:

“With Reaper forces beaten back, relief efforts are under way in the newly-taken territory.

During this period, Reaper enemies will be severely depleted and there will be far fewer brutes than usual.

All players will get +25% experience over the weekend as Citadel Allied Command reviews the lessons of Operation Goliath and uses them to train new forces.

Looking ahead: Admiral Hackett has put out the call for advanced combatants among the N7 squads. These troops are being marshaled for an upcoming elite operation. Experience under fire leads to promotions….”

The event begins today on all platforms and ends March 26 at 5am PST.

EGM’s TAKE: If you’ve fallen behind on your character leveling now is the time to catch back up. BioWare offers a helpful hint that you will want to be as high a level as possible ready for next week’s event. So get online and start working your way up to level 20 with your favorite character or build up your N7 rating.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
