Those anticipating Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer will be pleased to hear free DLC multiplayer maps have been confirmed by BioWare GM Aaron Flynn.
Flynn responded to a fan’s question on Twitter, pictured below, saying Andromeda multiplayer is “going to be just like ME3.” The fan specified Mass Effect 3’s free multiplayer maps in his tweet, so it’s safe to assume Flynn was confirming both multiplayer maps and their nonexistent cost.
Confirming a game feature like this on Twitter seems very unorthodox and nonchalant, but it’s a strategy BioWare has been fond of recently.
Just days ago, producer Fernando Melo shared several screenshots of Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer character-select screens, confirming armor customization and playable Krogan characters–as well as females of all races.

It seems like the devs are having fun teasing and confirming game features, stirring up excitement in the days leading up to launch. I get it. I’d be posting exciting features of my game every 30 seconds if I had one coming out. We’re all game nerds here.
As for Andromeda’s DLC maps, details beyond that tweet are unknown. Mass Effect 3 received five free multiplayer expansions, containing new maps, characters, and equipment, so maybe we’ll see something similar with Andromeda.
Though the game’s multiplayer beta has been cancelled, attendees at PAX East this week will be able to experience the mode firsthand.
Mass Effect: Andromeda hits shelves March 21st for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
