E3 2011: Mass Effect 3 Trailer and Official Release Date

June 6, 2011, By Nicholas Davis

We just saw Microsoft unveil Mass Effect 3 Kinect support which puts you closer to the game. They also showed off old fan favorite characters including Garrus Vakarian and Mordin Solus the singing Salarian scientist. As well as hinted at some new characters including a female Krogan. EA’s press conference starts within the hour but the trailer has leaked and can be seen below.

The game seems to be more heavily influenced this time around combat. Although the last two Mass Effect titles had action it seems BioWare is looking to make the ending of the trilogy more intense than ever before. The in depth conversation will return for that is what makes Mass Effect more of a movie than a videogame. The war on Earth has begun and you as Commander Shepard must stop the Reapers.

Commander Shepard has a few new tricks up his sleeve as you will notice from the video below. One of the most impressive being an omni-tool dagger that he uses to stab his enemies to death as a finishing kill. New Reaper technology, weaponry, and enemies have also appeared. The fight for Earth will not be an easy one and gives off the impression that all hope is lost. You choose how it ends. Mass Effect 3 is set to release March 6, 2012.
