Game Informer has some brand new details on Mass Effect 3, and thanks to NeoGaf so do we.
Someone has used the popular social site to post up the latest details on Mass Effect 3 straight from the US gaming magazine.
So what do we know? Well before we start, remember there will be some spoilers here.
The story starts with Shepard on Earth, effectively on trial in regard to the events of Arrival, and in the middle of the trial, the Reapers invade. It then seems that Shepard’s escapes to the Normandy and goes off to start finding allies, all while fighting Reaper troops along the way.
Squadmates joining him along the way include Liara, Ashley/Kaiden, Garrus and James Sanders, also confirmed to appear as Wrex, Mordin, Legion, and Anderson.
The Illusive Man also plays a prominent role, while Cerberus is out to kill Shepard, although we do not know the reason why at this point.
Finally the RPG element has been refined, giving players more freedom with the character skills. Skill trees will be larger, and powers will evolve several times instead of just once, offering even more freedom. Weapons are ME2 style, with a set list, but mods make a return, not in the ME1 style, but allowing you to swap out different parts such as barrels, scopes, and so on, which effect both the weapon’s combat performance and its appearance.
Also, all classes will be able to wield all weapons unhindered now, although they will have limited slots to carry them. Only the Soldier can carry all weapons at once, meaning the others will probably be limited in their carry capacity.
The game will also have numerous endings, some good, some bad, and who you have in your squad and which allies you recruit can have a drastic effect on which endings are available.
Thanks to Wario 64 over at NeoGaf for all of this information.
