Operation Lodestar to run until March 10
BioWare has announced Operation Lodestar, a five-day event for Mass Effect 3‘s multiplayer mode, according to the developer’s blog.
As with previous multiplayer events, which usually only lasted for a weekend, Operation Lodestar comes with different tiers of challenges, each with its own level of reward. The first tier, which simply requires players to participate in the event, rewards players with the Commendation Pack, which contains a randomly chosen weapon.
The second and third tier challenges require players to complete a co-op mission against each of the game’s four enemy factions – Geth, Reaper, Cerberus and Collector – on various difficulties. Completing this challenge on at least Silver difficulty rewards players with a second Commendation Pack and a banner saying “Stood Fast, Stood Strong, Stood Together.” Doing so on Platinum difficulty rewards players with a third Commendation Pack.
Operation Lodestar began on March 5 and will run until March 10.
