EA and BioWare have provided full details of the Online Pass system that will allow gamers to enjoy a full range of web-based content for Mass Effect 3.

Each new copy of the eagerly awaited Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC title will include a single-use code that will provide users with access to various online features.

These will include the game's newly announced multiplayer mode Galaxy at War, which allows players to form their own special forces squads aiding Commander Shepard's efforts to save the galaxy from the Reapers.

Online Pass registrants will also be able to gain access to the BioWare Social Network, helping them keep abreast of the latest Mass Effect news and access downloadable add-ons.

Casey Hudson, executive producer of the Mass Effect series, said: "The theme of galactic war in Mass Effect 3 presents us with the perfect opportunity to introduce multiplayer into the Mass Effect series."

Mass Effect 3 will hit stores in March 2012 and will receive a feature-packed Collector's Edition release, while the Xbox 360 edition offers support for Kinect voice controls.
