Some exciting stuff here for those of you who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Mass Effect 3, as the developer BioWare has just released a couple of game trailers revealing some of the pre-order goodies you can expect to receive if you intend on purchasing the title early.
First of all, everyone who pre-orders Mass effect 3 will gain access to the M55 Argus assault rifle, a weapon that according to the video clip is ‘devastating at any range’ and produces accurate bursts of fire. Additionally gamers in the US who manage to snap up the title early from GameStop will also receive the N7 Warfare Gear which consists of the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle; a weapon that possesses ‘superior accuracy’ and fires high caliber rounds and the N7 Defender Armor which grants players increased ammo capacity, weapon damage, shields and health.
Whether or not gamers outside of the US can obtain the N7 Defender Armor is not yet known although reports suggest regional availability will be announced soon. If that wasn’t exciting enough PC gamers who find themselves pre-ordering through EA’s Origin storefront are also in for a treat as they will be receiving the AT12 Raider Shotgun.
According to CVG there will also be a Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition available that features ‘classified’ bonus missions, characters and more. The first issue of the comic for the game called Mass Effect: Homelands is reported to be released in April. Published by Dark Horse and written by lead writer of Mass Effect 3 Mac Walters, each issue focuses on different characters in the Mass Effect universe. Faux-hawked newcomer James Vega will be the first member to be center of attention. The game is expected in March.
