*Spoiler alert, spoiler alert!*
The first Mass Effect information has been revealed via the latest copy of Game Informer. Those wishing to avoid spoilers, turn back now and go and read about Spyro the angry looking dragon!
ME3 will start with Shepard on trial on earth following the events of Mass Effect 2′s ‘Arrival’ DLC. The hearing doesn’t get very far though, as the Reapers start their attack.
Shepard is also on the hit list of the Cerberus organisation. The Illusive Man is said to play a crucial role in ME3. So far Garrus, Liara and, depending on a choice made in Mass Effect 1, Kaiden or Ashley, have been confirmed as squadmates, with Wrex, Mordin, Legion and Anderson also appearing as NPCs (depending whether they made it through the first two games).
Never played a Mass Effect game before? Firstly, shame on you, and secondly the game will start out with a “Previously on Mass Effect” comic similar to what came with the PS3 version of ME2.
Powers gained will evolve several times, and you will be able to mod your weapons, which are based on ME2’s. BioWare are also saying no to multiplayer.
