Operation Silencer Hits Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer This Weekend

Posted on May 11, 2012 AT 04:22pm

The next Mass Effect 3 N7 Weekend Operation is here, as Operation Silencer tasks players with aiding an all-out extermination effort against Reaper banshees.

The allied goal? Simple: Kill 3,000,000 banshees. Squad goal? Survive until a full extraction on any map against any enemy on gold difficulty.

Here’s a full introduction to this week’s N7 Weekend Operation, straight from BioWare:

Cerberus defectors have verified key intel on Reaper banshees to help provide us a vulnerability to exploit. Banshees are created from a specific kind of asari that cannot be replaced quickly, so we are diverting forces to focus on an all-out banshee extermination effort.

This task is an onerous one, and many of you are right to dread contact with these particular foes, but rest assured that we are prepared to reinforce your battalion with reserves. The vorcha want in, and as soon as they complete combined-arms training with our technically-skilled personnel, we will let them loose.

It’s time to make our enemies scream.

Operation Silencer kicks off tonight (Friday, May 11th) at 6pm Pacific, and runs until Monday, May 14th, at 5pm Pacific. Mass Effect 3 players on the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 can all join in—however, PS3 owners will not see the Operation Silencer promotional screen when playing. Don’t fears PS3 owners: If you participate, you will be rewarded.

As always though, if you do want to participate, you’ll need to have the “Upload Gameplay Feedback” setting to “On” in order to get credit for doing so.
