Mass Effect screenshot hype

Oct 2, 2007

With Halo 3 finally out of the way, Microsoft's mammoth PR machine can finally focus on its next big gun Mass Effect, starting with this new character bio.

Nihlus Kryik, one of the Citadel Council's most decorated Spectre agents, reads Microsoft's blurb, has unquestionable skills but is a bit of a hot head. A confidant of Saren, the main villain in Mass Effect, Nihlus has apparently learned a trick or two from the old master.

"Eventually, he stepped out of his mentor's shadow and established himself as one of the Council's top agents," the bio continues. "Since then, Nihlus has completed countless missions as a Spectre, each one more difficult and dangerous than the last.

"Though his methods aren't as brutal as Saren's, he will not hesitate to efficiently and thoroughly eradicate anything or anyone that stands in his way."

Check out three new screens of Nihlushere.
