E3 is underway with fresh screenshots out of BioWare for Mass Effect 3. More images of the title in the works have been revealed with BioWare firmly setting the arrival date for the third in the series for March 9th, 2012.
In Mass Effect 3, an ancient alien race known only as “Reapers”, has launched an all-out invasion of the galaxy, leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction. You, as Commander Shepard, must lead the counter assault to take it back. Only you can determine how events will play out, which planets you will save from annihilation and which alliances you will form or abandon as you rally the forces of the galaxy to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all.
Mass Effect 3 is currently on display at the Electronics Entertainment Expo at the EA booth located at #1601 in the South Hall.
