Mass Effect 3: everyone in the mood for new screenshots? Good, 'cos here are 6 absolute beauties

New Mass Effect 3 screenshots. Released. Today. By EA. From Gamescom. The brand new images show default buzz-cut Shepard and his squad going up against some filthy Cerberus scumbags (and a red Geth?). There's also a couple of butt-ugly Cannibals and a spectacular spider-inspired walker-thing to enjoy with your puny human eyeballs. Look at them now:

Mmmmmm. Mass Effect 3.

    I can't wait to finish this story/game . Hopefully it will be more rewarding and satisfying than a certain other sci-fi game and its ending.

    I just started over from game 1 to get ready for 3. Come on March!

    @KolbitosFruitJuice I believe Bioware said that the adept's close range melee attack was replaced by a biotic punch, so yeah 3 is probably that

    @PaganPoet Rofl.

    Good Job raider1987, give away part of the ending for all the unlucky people who didn't beat ME2 yet. Just think before you type.
  • KolbitosFruitJuice - August 16, 2011 6:31 p.m.

    Image 3 and 5 look like the special melee attacks unique for each class. 5 is obvious, 3 is kinda up in the air. Crap, this has me so excited again
  • raider1987 - August 16, 2011 6:07 p.m.

    Think that now I know I am fighting Cerberus.... it was a mistake to save the collector station for them at the end of ME2...... Gives me another excuse to play ME2 again.

    I believe they're called Reapers, GR. Kind of a big thing in the ME universe.
  • reuben0110 - August 16, 2011 4:55 p.m.

    I got a boner. Again.
  • paganpoet - August 16, 2011 4:52 p.m.

    Gawd, default male Shepard looks like such a d-bag. Bioware should get into contact with me, they can use my Shepard. He looks rugged and handsome for the straight mens, but also kind of like a gay porn star for the women and gheyz.

    You can't hide from me Garrus, I see you in that first shot! You sexy turian beast <3
  • JeffersonTrachea - August 16, 2011 4:31 p.m.

    Batarians were already ugly, the Cannibals aren't that much worse. I do like that Reaper walker thing> And that sexy new armor Garrus is working in the background of the first screen.
  • Doctalen - August 16, 2011 4:27 p.m.

    I haven't been following the game too closely recently. Since a lot of what I see are screenshots, which are nice by themselves, but I found it difficult to get large plot details other than the usual. Like Reapers attack Earth, you get aliens to defeat them, big hero cheer.
  • FOZ - August 16, 2011 4:18 p.m.

    Have you been following this game? There going to be equivalents of Husks/ Scions of every species now instead of just humans. Those look like Batarians. Every class has a different melee attack, so who gets the fiery sword? At least I wish it was a fiery sword. And please un-nerf biotics, ffs. The "mighty Adept" shouldn't be reduced to spamming Warp and shooting an smg all the time. "Garget surveys" agree.
  • Doctalen - August 16, 2011 4:10 p.m.

    The creatures in the second picture look like Scions, are they returning or are those creatures only related?
  • keltar93 - August 16, 2011 4:07 p.m.

    @db1331 I agree. I distinctly remember playing through Mass Effect with a full head of brown hair as I saved the galaxy and got it on with my woman Tali
  • n00b - August 16, 2011 4:07 p.m.

    why is it always generic Shepard?
  • PURDUCHI - August 16, 2011 4:03 p.m.

    @jackthemenace the spider thing is indeed a reaper... it is almost identical to sovereign. and i belive the melee attack is the omni blade and every class will have it.
  • Matt Cundy - August 16, 2011 3:56 p.m.

    @jackthemenace - I initially thought Reaper as well when I saw the spider thing, but decided it doesn't look quite 'organic' enough. If you know what I mean.
