Mass Effect 3's Take Back Earth trailer brings it home

Commander Shepard and crew shine in BioWare's latest CGI teaser

We're still a long way from a Mass Effect movie, but if it's anything like this new CGI promo for Mass Effect 3, consider us there on opening night. In the meantime, rejoice in the digital human apocalypse to come with BioWare and EA's latest “Take Back Earth” trailer:

Like what you see? Just wait. Today, EA tweeted word that an extended cut will be ready to post in just two days. We're crossing our fingers for more of the little kid running through the sunflowers, because that was just dang adorable.

The Take Back Earth trailer was teased last week, around the same time BioWare dropped a Mass Effect 3 demo on Xbox Live and PSN. Obviously fans are being whipped into a frenzy for the triology capper, which is said to end the current Mass Effect storyline. We say “current”, because you know EA will be publishing Mass Effect games well into the next century.

Mass Effect 3 finally lands for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 6 in North America, and March 9 in the UK. You can also catch one early in select cities, as physical copies fall from space during an EA promo sometime next week.
