With Mass Effect 3’s release mere days away, the inevitable launch trailer has hit the interwebs. Those keeping score will notice that this is, in fact, the third such launch trailer in the past week, but you won’t hear me complaining! In fact, since this one is comprised entirely of gameplay footage, unlike the CG “Take Back Earth” trailer and the live action “Fight” trailer, it is arguably the better trailer.
The launch trailer gives us a good idea of what to expect from the game and divulges a lot of its own interesting details. Highlights include an Asari in the hands of some….thing, the Illusive Man talking crap to Shepard, huge scale battles between Reapers and defending fleets (even led by the Destiny Ascension), new types of Reaper enemies, etc. You even catch a quick glimpse of returning characters, such as everyone’s favorite bald lady, Jack, resident racist, Ashley, and heartless mercenary, Zaeed. Oh, and sex. And explosions. Lots of explosions.
Mass Effect 3 will hit retail on March 6th, 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, so power up those omni-blades and head past the break to check out the launch trailer.
