Tons of new info of Bioware’s upcoming RPG “Mass Effect 3” have been revealed which details new characters, locations and plot of the game. We already posted detailed info of the new game along with two new exclusive screenshots here. The details are posted below:
The new characters list show new confirmed squad mates as below:
-Tali: Has unfinished business with Shepard.
-Jack: Had a character redesign. Was a popular romance option.
Confirmed Part of Squad:
-Kaiden/Ashley (Has achieved Spectre status)
-The Illusive Man
-Mordin (The plot dictates that he stays close to Shepard)
(And, from Game Informer earlier, Wrex)
-Quarian Homeworld Rannoch (The Geth Occupied One)
-Mars (A human-mining operation)
-A human mega city that formed when Vancouver and Seattle merged.
Add: That’s where you’ll spend your time on Earth. So not London or New York like previously mentioned. Describes the planet: ‘It’s curved, futuristic buildings bathe in beautiful light as the sea laps into the waterfront and docks.’ They also saw the aftermath in which the Reapers decimate it.
Additional Details- Combat and Plot Info
Heavy Melee Attacks
-Class based one hit kill melee move.
-There is a new charged-up melee attack where Shepard uses his Omni-Tool to inflicting a big burning hit.
-Casey Hudson says, the game will have some epic moments, as well as ‘smaller, more personal moments’ that exceeds the previous 2 games. The player will start realising things from Shepard’s personal life. He will have to deal with the consequences of the sacrifices he’s had to make.
-Obvious: Your choices will all have an impact in ME 3 such as the genophage, the collector base, your LI choices etc.
-New enemy type: The Cannibal. Part Batarian, part Human and part Reaper. Consumes other enemies in combat to gain strength.
-The Turret that Engineers can use won’t kill enemies, but distract them.
-Gunfights are quicker and more deadly (confirmation).
-Visually it’s tapping the heels of games such as Killzone 3 and Crysis 2, with 6 months development time left.
-The Rachni decision may haunt you in ME 3.
-Character customisation will be as extensive as ever.
-The action, rather than the all-linear affair of ME 2, will be more along the lines of Uncharted.
-New Cerberus troops are called Phantoms and Assassins.
-Shepard faces full-on bosses in the game’s story. Some are really huge. One part, you have to lure a Reaper up to a Thresher Maw so they can duke it out.
-“Many of the core story levels are built around the largest, most dramatic moments in the galaxy.”
-The Mass Effect series has sold over 7 million copies.
