EA and BioWare have announced a whack
of pre-order incentives for Mass Effect 3, offering fans some flashy
weapons and armor in exchange for their early allegiance.
Starting today, players who reserve
their copy at select game shops (including GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart) will receive the
M55 Argus assault rifle, a burst fire weapon sporting increased
accuracy. Watch it take down a few baddies in EA's video:
Meanwhile, North American fans who slap
down cash at GameStop and EB Games will also get the N7 Warfare Gear; a
pack containing the high-impact N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle and a
stat-enhancing N7 Defender Armor. Sounds good? See how it
Lastly, pre-ordering the PC
version from EA's Origin service will net you the AT-12
Raider Shotgun; a weapon sporting deadly close-range killing
abilities. Or so we're told.
On top of today's videos, EA and
BioWare have also released a handful of screenshots depicting the
early bird bonuses below. Of course, you can always just try them
yourself when Mass Effect 3 storms onto PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on
March 6 in North America, and March 9 in the UK.
