Although it was accidentally outed last night by the EA retail store, it still wasn't confirmed to be the title that BioWare had been teasing for the Spike VGAs. Now it has. Mass Effect 3 is official, and it's in 2011
"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."
Shocking? Not really. ME2 made its way onto the PS3, so for ME3 to not be multiplatform wouldn't have made any sense. EDIT: Me too...C'MON BRO!
I was being sarcastic.
Sony is really pushing for it tonight! I have seen loads of PS3 ads too, nice to see they put effort into it haha. There are prob as many announcements for games at the VGA's as E3.
oh yay more dumbing down of me for ps3 owners
I F*CKING LOVE BIOWARE! And its coming in Holiday 2011, not 2013! THANK YOU LORD! Mass Effect 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming in the same season let alone same year. My dreams are coming true!
So yearly is now good? I know it's almost 2 years as it will come in Q3 2011 and ME came in Q1 2010, but that still isn't a step in the right direction in my book. For us, PS3 owners, it will be both ME 2 and 3 in 2011... We have to wait and see if they aren't just rushing sequels out to make quick money, as in any yearly game, my highest concern would be it lacks on new content over ME2... Time will tell if I'm right or just paranoid.
bishop - i'm a ps3 only owner as well. i just watched the ME3 trailer and it's going to be a day 1 purchase for me........it looks intense! what a year 2011 is going to be.
What are you talking about? It's not yearly. November 11 is at the end of 2011 not at the beginning. ME 2's been released in January 2010. PS3 users are gonna get a port of ME 2 in 2011's beginning and by port I'm not saying the inferrior version. Just saying that the story, music, graphics, everything was ready and only thing needed to bring it to PS3 was just porting it and that's all. If ME 2 was released at the beginning of 2011 for all platforms, you have a right to say that. But ME 3 won't be coming after a year later. It'll be coming two years after ME 2 which means Bioware has plenty of time to do polishing, etc.
I'm not saying it will be a bad game, just that they are doing exactly what we so commonly dislike here, moving to tigher schedules, as it can end on less content than expected. I was just noting that ME2 came out on Jan 2010 and ME3 comes out Nov 2011, for sure it's not really yearly (as I have already stated before, it's 1 year and 9~10 months). but we all know Bioware don't only make ME and that they aren't a giant team, they also make Dragon Age, which also was said to release next year... They just released a DA this year too... Like it or not, it means 2 games from Bioware every calendar year, let's say they use 2/3 of this time between releases of ME2 and 3 just to develop ME3, that's a little more than 14months of development time, barely over a yearly schedule, plus they only had 7~8 months to deal with the last DA and the next one. Not necessarily a bad thing if they can handle it, but I wouldn't mind them taking more time, just to be sure.
I cant beleive its coming out at teh end of 2011. WOW. Im getting all the 3 games next year. Mass effect 3, uncharted 3, diablo 3, and gears 3.
@tmoss726 "Im getting all the 3 games next year" Learn how to read. He said he is gettin the games that end with a 3.
WEW! one of the best franchises this gen! ALL MIIINE! =D
One of the best :D
no such things as absolutes. ever.
MS Got face palmed !
oh god yes. Just started 1 last week, gonna get 2 in the new year, and then 3 by the end!
This is epic
Mass Effect 1 was amazing, I gave the Mass Effect 2 PC version an honest 9.5, and I expect no less from ME3. BioWare, I love you.
Hands down my favorite franchise this gen.
Go to see some home town loving (or killing)
As a Londoner as well, I would love to visit the North Western part where I reside.
Multiplatform,hell yeah :)
When i was whatching the trailer it felt like Resistance Fall of Man and i was like wtf xD
my god, so many great games
Can the PS3's line-up get any better?
Hell Yes !!!!! this game is gonna look beast for the firs time in a console lol!
Nexus-Knight Yeah.........it already did. It got released on the 360!
Rhetorical questions are not appreciated here. It can and WILL get even better. I love you, my PS3!
Sony is just getting warmed up. I have been more of a 360 gamer the first few years this generation but now that has all but changed. The only game I am looking forward to next year on the 360 is Gears 3.
Mass Effect 2 & 3 in the same year for PS3. :D Pretty sweet, I will look forward to this game.
2011!!!! 2011!!! HOLY SH*T 2011!!!!!!!!!
...that sucks for London, though...
Can I get a hell yeah?!
Some games have to get pushed back. There's just too much awesome for one year.
For the love of God, PS3 only owners....DO NOT LOOK AT THE VIDEOS OR ANY VIDEOS FOR THAT MATTER. WAY TO MANY SPOILERS!!!!!!!!
ME3.......No words need to be said.
any one have a live stream that works ?
man.....how many good exclusives left on 360? forza, gears and halo? o and fable, man u guys r gettin trimmed. well cheers for ME3 eitherway
Well, that explains your one bubble I guess. *shrugs shoulders*. Bye now?
ppl was saying the same thing about ps3 with some to most of exclusives was going multi-platform ps3 goods ff13versus(might be multiplatform but i doubt) Uncharted Resistance Killzone(only got recognition when 2 came out) Ratchet&Clank(I praise insominac Metal gear solid(partially since rising is going to be multiplatform) 360 still got a lot exclusive same goes for the Ps3 but companies more and more is going multiplatform because of $$$. FF13 show the bad side of going multiplatform but multiplatform can't be blame for poor sale, but more rather overall game itself. Exclusive is just for bragging these days. Truthfully people are caring less and less. You will people argue more about an exclusive going multiplatform than vice-versa.
Aswesome! I can't wait to see the conclusion to the story.
I do hope that it retains more RPG elements. Bioware might be forced to cut some in-depth RPG features to streamline the game.
Sweet! At least now the fanboys won't be spoiling the game on N4G since it'll be coming to all the "big" platforms. Bliss. :)
2 3 4 5 100 Any new IP? No offense to people who is looking for it and I actually liked ME1 and ME2 but I get tired of same old formula. I want New IP.
There will be
2011 will be godlike to all fellow gamers
Looks real good.
Nice, I will get this day one.
Uncharted n ME will finally go toe to toe ... wow 2011!!!
Mass Effect 3's released date says Holidays 2010. The problem is Elder Scroll V has a release date of Nov. 11, 2011. Mass Effect is good but it might not want to go head to head with Elder Scrolls 5.
that shit looked. cant wait to play the ps3 version of mass effect 2
I think ES5 will get push back some. Even if it doesn't I'm buying them both
Nice! I love me some Mass Effect!
Now the final question is, how many discs will it require on the 360?
At 360 owners get the trilogy.. 1 -> 2 -> 3 How it was meant to be played.
I think you may be on to something.
yeah on Earth thats the ultimate mass effect on PS3! mwahhahahaha
Pardon my french again but HOLY F**K !!!! This is dropping in 2011 along with Uncharted 3. I need to go find a dark corner i can go lie down because this is beyond crazy. ITS F****N'MENTAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wow! another ps3 game! uncharted 3 - check! resistance 3 - check! journey - check! yakuza 4 - check! ps3 is making other consoles look pale in comparison.
