New Mass Effect 3 Details, No Multiplayer – The Full Quencher

by Ernice Gilbert on April 8th, 2011, under EA, Hot, News, PC, PS3, Xbox 360

The latest GameInformer magazine’s decked out with Mass Effect 3 details, and just as expected, someone’s gone on and post the full thing on gaming’s web. We have the full lot for you below the break.

It starts off with Shepard being on trial on planet earth following the final events that played out in the game’s final DLC offering, Arrival. However while the hearing is in session, the Reapers start their massive earth invasion.

The organization that saved Shepard in Mass Effect 2, Cerberus, is out to kill him this time around, and it’s said that the Illusive man has a great role to play in this final chapter.

There will be no multiplayer in ME3 but the feature will, however, be considered for future games and spin-offs, according to new details lifted from the latest issue of Game Informer (per NeoGAF).

Teammates confirmed for the WRPG include: Garrus, Liara and, depending on a choice made in Mass Effect 1, Kaiden or Ashley, with Wrex, Mordin, Legion and Anderson.

If you’re new to the franchise, Bioware’s prepared a “previously on Mass Effect” comic to help get you acquainted with one of the highest rated series this generation, and one of the bestselling.

The title won’t go back to gameplay standards of Mass Effect 1, but RPG elements will be boosted, and more freedom will be given to character skills, while skill trees will be bigger and your powers will evolve several times instead of just once.

Although the weapons in ME3 are based on ME2, this time there will be mods, which will enable you to swap out gun parts, such as barrels, and scopes.

All classes are now standalone in the sense that they’ll be unhindered in terms of weapons, but there will be limited weapons carrying ability. The only class allowing you to carry your full arsenal will be the Soldier Class.

The game comes alive this holiday for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
