New Mass Effect details released

Ourbest buddy BioWare has detailed a new race for its upcoming 360 colossus Mass Effect; the survival suit-wearing quarians.

According to the game's official website the quarians are a nomadic race of humanoid aliens, dressing in scavenged materials and hiding their faces behind visors and goggles - basically they're like intergalactic grungers.

"Some believe the quarians are cybernetic, a blend of machine and biology that can survive for a time in the cold vacuum of space," the website post reads. "Others believe the quarians are simply so used to living on their substandard, makeshift ships that they never remove their survival suits."

"Three hundred years ago the quarians created the geth, a species of rudimentary AIs, to serve as an efficient source of manual labor. But the geth rebelled against their quarian masters and drove them into exile. Now the quarians wander the galaxy in a flotilla of salvaged ships, secondhand vessels, and recycled technology."
