Does Mass Effect 3 have multiplayer? The industry can't seem to decide, but the cover of the latest issue of Xbox World says it has.

One cover line teases: "Mass Effect 3: New levels - and multiplayer!"

The first hint that the game would contain multiplayer (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/248942/mass-effect-to-get-online-multiplayer/) slipped out in a BioWare job listing for a 'Multiplayer programmer (Mass Effect Franchise)'. Since then industry 'sources' (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/307597/mass-effect-3-multiplayer-is-real-based-on-original-online-missions/) and other reports have supported claims (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/305786/mass-effect-3-are-these-the-first-multiplayer-details/) that the game will come with a "Horde-style multiplayer mode," as well as established multiplayer types such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag.

But BioWare dismissed forum chatter on the subject (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/280660/mass-effect-3-is-a-single-player-game-bioware-mod/) when a rep said: "Mass Effect 3 is a single-player game."

Keep a sharp eye out for UK's Xbox World issue 108
