Mass Effect 3 Outed On EA Store

The EA Store has added a pre-order listing for Mass Effect 3 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The listing includes a description that the "Earth is burning" and Commander Shepard (that's you!) has to gather the races of the galaxy to launch "one final mission" against machines striking from beyond known space

The story is too old to be commented.
Fishy Fingers2868d ago

Oops... I imagine this should of gone up after, what is now pretty clear to be, the VGA reveal of ME3.

TOO PAWNED2868d ago

i am only glad that it is day 1 on PS3, all i care for.

-Alpha2868d ago

Don't forget that it will likely have a MP component...

ksense2868d ago

Mass Effect 3 with Multiplayer component looks like confirmed just like uncharted 2 which added multiplayer

NoOoB1012868d ago

The only Mp component i want is Co-op.

plenty a tool2868d ago

great news! but i am a little diappointed with sime of the things that i have done in mass effect 1 and 2. like killing wrex and the arachni queen..

i dont have the time to go back and play them both again at the mo... although i mite have to.

and, can someone link me the bit about multi-player please..

day one for sure

MariaHelFutura2868d ago

The multiplayer should be co-op thru the story (like Borderlands), the game is made for it.

saint_john_paul_ii2867d ago

the consequences will never...be the same...

JohnnyBadfinger2867d ago

Eww yuck! fuck multiplayer.

Keep it Single player Story only... MP takes precious development time away from the epic story.

Dont go saying they can get another dev to make it, because just look at what happened when EA combined DICE and the MOH dev team together...

Fucking idiots always trying to ruin perfect games for morons like you guys who only want multiplayer games... fuck off!

evrfighter2867d ago

i don't see how ME would work in multiplayer...it would come off as generic

Maybe this is EAs plan, to make people think it's going to be Mass Effect 3, then BAM! It's not. That would be awesome.

If anything, i hope this is that 2013 game, so they have enough time to polish it and everything.

Blacktric2868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

"That would be awesome."

No. It wouldn't. Wasn't waiting the release of God Of War 3 painful for you since you're a God Of War fan (just making an assumption from your avatar)? Sure at the end you got a great game but it was a PS3 game while last game ever released at that time was God Of War 2 for PS2 (if I'm not mistaken). But for ME 3, engine is ready, story was probably ready before the release of ME 2, so only thing they have to do is just make the game and release it. But since Geoff Keighley said that "there's a game that has "Coming 2013" at the end of its trailer", I'm thinking that might be ME 3 and thinking about it makes me sad.

Christopher2868d ago

I agree, it would be awesome to have a new IP and know that ME3 would be coming regardless. I guess a lot of people want ME3, but just because the reveal isn't ME3 doesn't mean that ME3 isn't coming. It's kind of a given. And, it's also a bit early for such a reveal considering ME2 came out just last year. I'd rather have ME3 out at the very end of this year or very start of 2012 since I know they would have had a good 2 years to work on improving the engine and really getting the gameplay to shine rather than spending a lot less time on it.

JohnnyBadfinger2867d ago

just because people want something... doesnt mean you have to give it to them...

otherwise this planet would be fucked if we all got what we want.

leave it until late 2012 or early 2013.

Cevapi882868d ago

i just hope it gets a smart release date, meaning a 2011 release date would be counterproductive since the game has gone multiplatform...i think it would only hurt sales on the PS3 since ME2 is just about to come out and PS3 gamers are being introduced to series if they havent seen it or played it on the PC before

i had the original on my PC, so the back story for me will be just fine

ksense2868d ago

January 2012 sounds likely

UnwanteDreamz2868d ago

Yep I want to play 2 before 3 comes out. I know fans will disagree but I wouldn't mind a 2012 release.

Blacktric2868d ago

I'm so happy! Finally we're gonna see the Earth, eventhough it'll probably be a warzone. My guess is, that "teaser" picture Bioware published on their Facebook and Twitter pages is the picture of an enemy soldier (someone who's trying to make profit while Earth is under attack by Reapers and their agents maybe?). It'll try to shoot either Shepard or some innoncent civillian and Shepard's probably gonna stop him in the trailer.

Seriously does ANYONE working at these "stores" even care about the reveal dates or no?
Because it seems like everyday some online store or otherwise "announce" games before they've been so officially.

I mean really, it's ridiculous. Somebody should be fired :P

TheGameFoxJTV2868d ago

If there is a Co-Op mode, it should be a TOTALLY separate mode from single player rather it's Co-Op or not.

SaberEdge2867d ago

I think we all knew this was coming. I can't wait to see something about it though.

chainer30002867d ago

ME has never been a game I've looked at and gone "Damn, wish I could play online."

Split screen Co-Op would be fine though.

avengers19782867d ago

How does someone out a game that everyone knew was coming out; even before the second was released everyone knew there was a third one, and everyone knew that the game would be coming out pretty soon.
Keep telling me stuff I already know though thnx.

Another surprise for the VGA's that is not a surprie any more.

The people from Spyke will be really happy with this screen.

Theoneneo812868d ago

Though I think it was a given ME 3 was gonna be shown 1 way or another.

TOO PAWNED2868d ago

so just because it isn't surprise we should not watch VGA to see those trailer? Yeah screw R3, U3, ME3 trailers....grow up. I seriously don't get people as yourself that always have to bitch and moan about something.

BrianG2868d ago

lol, after reading your comment and his it seems like your the one bitching and moaning.

Sounds like calitax was just stating an opinion to me. Your the one that got all emotionally involved, "grow up" haha.

Don't mean to be mean, just my opinion. And I'll still be watching the VGA's to see these trailers.

RockmanII72868d ago

lol nice. The first thing I did when I saw this was post the url in my skype chat.

MicroSony4Life2868d ago

What time does VGA start? Eastern Time Please.

jony_dols2867d ago

I'm pulling an all-nighter to see the it all live.
By the time the awards are finished in GMT, it is going to be well into Sunday morning....

Day 1 buy I've finished another play through of 1 this week working on my 4th play through of 2 right now. This is possibly the greatest series of all time next to MGS. @wtf at the disaggres? Obviously you guys have not played this game if you disagree with me.

Forbidden_Darkness2868d ago

There are too many great series, but i agree, while i havent played the second one (yet), it's a great series, just hope they are given the time to polish and everything, to make this a grand closure to this trilogy.

BakedGoods2868d ago

Dude, you haven't even played Mass Effect until you've played 2.

user83971442868d ago

Its too soon for another mass effect. They could of have waited till E3.

Iamback2868d ago

Who said that it is coming any time soon? It is probably Jan 2012

Dorwrath2868d ago

Not really, maybe for PS3 users who are gonna buy Mass Effect 2 in January, but for anyone else I think late 2011 wouldn't be too early.

Lunatic_Brandon2867d ago

It should be out early 2012, 2 years after release. Announcing a game one year early is fine.

ChaosReaperX2868d ago

I think I just gaz'd my pants. Seriously, fighting on Earth? Gathering all the races of the galaxy for one final galactic battle? Multiplayer? Sign me the fuck up!

ChaosReaperX2868d ago

If you disagree, then go fudge yourself.
