It’s been months since the conclusion of Mass Effect 2, and Shepard is back on Earth under house arrest. Despite the countless warnings about the Reapers, life on Earth and the rest of the galaxy seem far too relaxed. All that matters is Shepard worked with Cerberus and needs to atone for it.
However, when Earth starts to suffer from the destructive forces of the Reapers, the Council calls on Shepard’s for advice and experience. Finally keen to listen, and wondering what to do next, they call for Shepard to go back to active duty to stop the impending threat. Is it too late?
