New Video Shows Mass Effect 3’s Squad Leader Gameplay; Comes With New Screenshots

August 16, 2011, By Christian Davis

Everyone is pulling out all the stops for Gamescom this year. Bioware is included and that means one thing: Mass Effect 3. Whenever there’s news about the final chapter of the incredible Mass Effect trilogy, we all want to know every little thing. Bioware released a new video showcasing the squad leader combat commands.

The video shows Shepard and team take on an onslaught of Cerebus mercenaries. The first thing you’ll notice is how visually gorgeous the game looks. Details are sharp and characters look incredibly realistic. After you finish drooling over the aesthetics, you’ll notice that you can tell your teammates exactly what to do.

Calling out when your partners will attack a certain enemy, with a certain weapon, and from which position will definitely come in handy. That’s all illustrated pretty fluidly in the video below. The team takes out the Cerebus group pretty easily, but are then greeted with an Atlas heavy mech.

These mechs look stronger than those in previous Mass Effect iterations. So strong in fact, that one of your teammates is killed within seconds of the mech’s arrival. These things are tough and are easily one of the harder foes you’ll face in the game.

Here’s the video below. Let us know what you think!
