Mass Effect 3 details emerge in Game Informer
Subscribers have gotten their first look at Game Informers cover story on Mass Effect 3, and while youll have to read the magazine to get all the details, a reader posting on the GameFAQs forum is providing hints of whats to come -- and sorry, that doesnt include multiplayer.
Expect more RPG elements this time around -- if still not on par with Mass Effect 1 -- with beefier skill trees and more evolution of powers. You can also expect more weapon modification, though, again, likely not as much as we saw in ME1. All weapons will be usable by all classes, though each class (except for the solider) will be limited to a certain number of weapons that can be equipped for a mission.
As far as Mass Effect 3s plot ... well, suffice it to say that Shepard is on Earth due to the events of the "Arrival" DLC. But thats all well spill. As for returning characters -- you really dont want to know, do you? ... You sure? ... OK, fine. For now, we know Liara and Garrus (if he survived) will be playable. Favorites like Wrex and Mordin (again, if theyre alive) will also make appearances, though whether theyll be full-fledged teammates is unknown.
Sorry, but thats all youre getting from us. You can check out the new issue of Game Informer if you want to spoil more for yourself, but we certainly wont be party to it.
