Xbox 360's Mass Effect - an original futuristic RPG from the creators of Knights of the Old Republic - made a stir at last week's X06 conference, and the screens have finally emerged from hyperspace.
We got a more detailed report on the game coming up soon, but in the meantime click the Images tab above for the latest eyeful of your squad of interstellar do-gooders.
Developer BioWare's fetish for personality means your back-up characters will all have their own volatile traits. And with alien co-stars like Garrus seeming eager to butt heads, that's a painful proposition. Especially because his skull is armor-plated.
Mass Effect will be released early next year, accompanied by downloadable Xbox Live content. Also, the game is slated to be the first in a trilogy, so we might be seeing a lot more effects of a massive nature as the 360 matures.
