Mass Effect 3 trailer shows Earth under siege

You knew it was coming. But any news about Mass Effect 3 is good news. Earlier this morning a listing on Electronic Arts online store confirmed that the final chapter for the trilogy will be coming out for the PlayStation 3.

The official description in the listing for Mass Effect 3 revealed some details about the plot of the title, reports CVG. The description says, "Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth."

The listing has been removed, but a picture is worth a thousand words – and the debut trailer for Mass Effect 3 is worth about a million. Check it out.

    @Darkhawk Did he just delete your profile or delete all your game saves? You can recover your profile and all your game saves will be there. I would look into that before restarting all over again.

    @Darkhawk Well that's not a terrible thing. It still sucks but the games are awesome.

    I hope I don't die in between now and ME3s release date, because well..I'd be able to do nothing about it, but my ghost would be intensley pissed off.

    My bloody new roommate deleted my Profile, and I lost all my Mass Effect files. Now I need to replay through both games again before the third.

    @fusionmix uhh within the first week i'm sure most of earths defenses were still around and fighting, they aren't going to just show up and boom boom every one on the whole planet, all of the earth fleet, and everything defending earth is all dead. wouldn't that make it all the more unbelievable that shepard could win in the end?
  • fetalspray - December 13, 2010 12:11 a.m.

    I came

    hmm... let me guess. The illusive man is behind all of this. *yawn This series is do damn predictable.
  • Psylockerules - December 12, 2010 11:43 p.m.

    so glad that its 2011! thought the wait to mass effect 3 would be ages like the wait for the 2nd one, hope the British marine will be a companion
  • D0CCON - December 12, 2010 11:37 p.m.

    I thought I typed ME3 first, anyways, add that there too. It's the most important one.
  • D0CCON - December 12, 2010 11:37 p.m.

    So Crysis 2, Portal 2, 3DS and a multitude of its games, TES5, Forza 4, Uncharted 2, Resistance 3, Gears 3, Homefront, Batman Arkham City are coming out next year or very close to it. Two questions: How many of these are going to be moved to 2012 and how on earth am I going to get enough money to buy them all? I have very little of anything on my Christmas wishlist this year, but next year is going to be LOADED (again, unless half of these get pushed back to 2012 as is the norm).

    I can't possibly wait for this game to come out... however that Winter 2011 release is honestly unlikely since the series has mostly been coming out in the January-April quarter plus they cannot be this close to done or else the game'll end up as buggy as the first one was. Musings aside, YEAH! Mass Effect 3 and it's on Earth, yeah baby!!1

    Reapers vs. Paragon Shepard. Who will win? GOD I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GAME!!! Also can't wait for the conclusion of my romance with Tali. Tali FTW!
  • BishopofHippo93 - December 12, 2010 9:03 p.m.

    I need this. Right now. Also: Shepard must die in an explosion of a million reapers while giving a piggyback to Miranda and high-fiving Garrus. It's the only way the series will mean anything.

    Awesomeness is ensuing. I can't wait
