Mass Effect 3 Operation Vigilance begins today

Mass Effect 3's new multiplayer challenge begins today, giving players a chance to earn Commendation and Victory packs.

Operation: Vigilance's squad goal tasks you with completing up to and including wave 10 on any difficulty without using a consumable (medi-gel, ammo, Ops pack, or Cobra missile launcher). The allied goal, which will reward you with a Victory pack wants you to complete 250,000 escort missions on any difficulty.

The description reads:

Unexpected attacks have taken out several squads and damaged vital Alliance equipment. We will deploy drones to repair damage and investigate the nature of these attacks.
