It will make you think, you will care about the character you are playing, and you will care about the characters that you bring into battle with you.”
Mass Effect 3 will be released March 6th, 2012 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. For those who just can’t wait for the intergalactic battle between humanity and the Reapers, get your first taste with the Mass Effect 3 demo which launches worldwide on February 14th.
