Updated Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Infographic


Multiplayer in Mass Effect 3. I don’t think many gamers took it seriously before the game launched or expected it to be a long-lasting draw once the campaign had been completed. However, in the two months since its release, the multiplayer component appears to have spawned a dedicated following. That, or so many copies have sold that a mass volume of gamers experimenting with a few rounds before returning to the single-player has been enough to skew the stats a bit.

Either way, the multiplayer statistics are very impressive for a solo-first RPG. According to this shiny, new infographic from EA, nearly 23 million multiplayer matches have been played and well over a trillion credits have been spent. Firebase White seems to be the community’s preferred map, drawing 36% of the total match count, and apparently a lot of players are dying as 84 million medi-gels have been used to revive fallen comrades. Gold difficulty must be damn tough, too, because only 3.5% of the 10.5 million successful extractions have met the gold standard.

Peek at the infographic for other interesting stats like these. Any thoughts? What has your Mass Effect 3 multiplayer experience been like? Are you still playing?
