This weekend’s Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event is Operation Overwatch, the first bounty weekend to take advantage of the just-released Earth DLC.

Operation Overwatch will take place between 10AM Pacific on July 27th, and 5AM Pacific on July 30th. Here’s the details of the operation:

Operation OVERWATCH drops troops on Earth to tackle the most secure Reaper strongholds. Reaper anti-air defense will make for high-risk shuttle extractions.

Squad Goal: Extraction on any difficulty with at least one squad member using an Earth Pack character

Allied Goal: Extract 800,000 individual players on any difficulty, with each live member counting toward the goal.

Squad Goal Success: All squad members awarded a Commendation Pack.
Allied Goal Success: All players awarded a Victory Pack that includes a new Earth character.

Special Circumstance: Extraction time lengthened due to failure of Operation BROADSIDE.

Requirement: Mass Effect: Earth must be installed to earn these rewards.

I’m definitely going to get in on this one, as I really want that Shadow Infiltrator—and I really don’t want to grind and grind and grind to keep buying packs hoping to randomly get her. Here, I’ll actually have a 1 out of 5 chance!
