Mass Effect 3 'Earth' DLC coming next week

Love it or hate it, but EA and BioWare have been throwing a lot of support behind Mass Effect 3's multiplayer mode. Best of all, every expansion pack released so far has been free. Next week's "Earth" pack promises to continue expanding the game's online offering--and yep, it's still free.

The Earth multiplayer expansion will be available next week according to a post on Major Nelson. While EA has yet to release official details on the pack, an earlier rumor pointed to the addition of three maps: Rio, Vancouver, and London. In addition, the free DLC adds a Piranha assault shotgun, Acolyte pistol, Typhoon light machine gun, and six human classes: Destroyer, Paladin, Demolisher, Slayer, Shadow, and Fury.
