Leak: Mass Effect 3 Earth DLC New N7 Classes

Until now, the new multiplayer classes were given no more than a name. The leak, spotted by Something Awful, offers complete descriptions for each of the six new N7 classes to be released July 17 on Xbox. Along with the new classes, you can expect mods, gear, maps and a new difficulty mode to be included in the next DLC.

Here are the full descriptions and abilities of the new N7 classes:

N7 Destroyer – Soldier

  • "The Destroyer's T5-V Battlesuit gives these strong-but-slow soldiers mech-like protection. Driven by eezo-assisted actuators, these frontline troopers carry heavy weapons onto the battlefield."


    Abilities: Multi-Frag Grenade, Missile Launcher, Devastator Mode

N7 Fury – Adept

  • "Fury operatives use implants to fuel biotics and their incredible movement speed. These operatives wind an unpredictable path on the battlefield, moving in and out of combat before returning to unleash a sweeping biotic attack on their unsuspecting targets."


    Abilties: Throw, Annihilation Field, Dark Channel

N7 Shadow – Infiltrator

  • "Shadow infiltrators use implants to dramatically improve agility, making them slippery combatants on the battlefield. Their monomolecular blades are a menace from cover and close range."


    Abilities: Tactical Cloak, Shadow Strike, Electric Slash

N7 Demolisher – Engineer

  • "The Demolisher uses grenades to attack at range and to terrorize the battlefield. Demolishers can also create a supply pylon that stocks allies with an nending reserve of grenades and thermal reloads."


    Abilties: Homing Grenade, Arc Grenade, Supply Pylon

N7 Paladin – Sentinel

  • “The Paladin carries a powerful omni-shield onto the battlefield to block enemy fire. The Paladin also uses the shield as a heavy-melee weapon that, when modified with incindiery or cryo upgrades, creates a devastating combination attack.”


    Abilties: Snap Freeze, Incinerate, Energy Drain

N7 Slayer – Vanguard

  •  “Slayers use implants to dramatically improve mobility. Their dizzying sword attacks can hit multiple opponents, and the Slayer’s ability to slip fire makes them hard to pin down on the battielfield.”


    Abilities: Phase Disruptor, Biotic Charge, Biotic Slash

Best of all, a blog post spotted by Eurogamer states that the DLC will be free via the Xbox Live Marketplace. For images of each of the six new classes, check out the post on PC Gamer.

    It's a shame actually. When I played the MP Demo, I enjoyed myself. However, after the huge disappointment that was the ending, I just can't bring myself to enjoy anything ME anymore. It really sucks, but I'm glad there are those who can still enjoy it.

    Ending totally ruined this series for me. I have no doubt that EA would be charging $10 for this if they didn't have to save face from that putrid ending.

    Actually they would still release this for free, enough idiots are buying points just to pay for packs. A quick look on youtube shows people spending 80+ dollars on points just to get packs. Instead of playing the MP and getting credits....

    I really did not mind the ending that much. I mean sure it was a little wacked, and full of plot holes, but its a game... I guess I was not expecting much.

    Don't care much about multiplayer DLCs as I don't have much time playing MP anyway. I want more single player stories. Hope Bioware is listening.

    First, they have to run it with EA...

    And we all know how much attention EA gives to their customers...

  • Really? Leak? If you went to bioware's website a couple of days ago it was publicly annouced with all of these details. The leak was a couple of weeks ago. Old news.

    There is no need to charge for new content if people spend money to buy in-game upgrades and cosmetics.

Old news.I don't think I've checked Bioware's site since I looked up the release date of ME3, so this news article is in fact quite useful.
