Mass Effect is back, Commander Shephard is back. This time the war is in our beloved earth.
Mass Effect 3 is officially confirmed at VGA, 2010. Coming to PS3, 360 and PC at the same time. So no waiting.
Lets hope for the best.
EA and Bioware have just confirmed Mass Effect 3 is indeed real and arriving next year. The announcement was made at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, which are currently airing live in the US. The trailer gives an "Holiday 2011" release date.
The trailer shown confirms the leaked synopsis, showing off London in ruins as a soldier hopes and prays that Commander Shepard can return to the planet in time with a fleet large enough to take down the Reaper threat that is decimating the planet.
Here's that synopsis again, for those of you who missed it:
"Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth."

Gamespot Breaks Down Mass Effect 3 Reveal Trailer
Originally Posted by Gamespot
The trailer for Mass Effect 3 begins with a narrator (whose voice sounds similar to that of English actor Sean Bean) proclaiming the death tolls of a catastrophic event. Peering out a window, we get a look at the devastation as numerous buildings and other sorts of structures have been completely decimated by an unknown force. What's interesting about all this is that the soldier (and presumable narrator) is hiding out in a clock tower--which is later revealed to be none other than Big Ben.
As the camera pans down, we get a look at the presumed narrator--a wounded soldier holed up in a building with a sniper rifle at his side. The soldier tends to his wounds with what might be medi-gel packs, suggesting that his armor isn't as advanced as the types worn by Commander Shepard in Mass Effect 2.
With his wounds treated for the time being and the sound of screams coming through the window, the soldier gets to his feet and grabs his sniper rifle to see what's going on outside. He sees a group of people that are under attack. At the same time, we hear him describing the events that transpired and how the attack by this unknown force was incredibly well coordinated.
The soldier takes aim with his rifle and manages to gun down the enemy that was bearing down on the humans. Unfortunately, it's kind of hard to make out what the target is. It's interesting that the enemy is so obscured--perhaps intentionally so. You might think it's a Geth, but if it were, why would BioWare be so mysterious about an enemy we've seen so many times before? Most likely it's something quite a bit more ominous.
With the target down, the soldier looks up into the sky just as a bright light shines directly onto his position. The camera pans out and we get an "Oh my" moment as it's revealed that the soldier is inside the top of Big Ben in London, and the planet is Earth. As the shot pans out even further, we see even more destruction as well as the imposing Reapers hovering above the city. The soldier remarks, "Shepard better bring help soon." The shot of London and greater references to Earth as a whole are especially interesting. We often hear discussion of Earth in the Mass Effect series, but thus far players have never actually traveled there. If Mass Effect 3 winds up being set on humankind's home planet, it will be a stark contrast to the alien worlds that Shepard has traversed in the previous two games.
And with that, we get a final shot of Commander Shepard--decked out in the Onyx armor--overlooking Earth as it's under attack. The narrator remarks that if Shepard doesn't act quickly, "there won't be an Earth to save." And the most important part is that we get a tentative release date of "Holiday 2011," which can't come soon enough.

May Cover Revealed: Mass Effect 3
Commander Shepard has already saved the galaxy twice, but the final entry in the Mass Effect trilogy could be either the hero's last stand or finest hour. Earth is in jeopardy, entire civilizations are at risk, and we've got all the details. Our latest issue has 12 pages of exclusive info, screens, and art that no Mass Effect fan should miss.
Subscribers should be receiving their issues in the coming days. After you finish reading up, don't forget to keep checking back with gameinformer.com throughout the month, since we'll have plenty of updates delving into Mass Effect 3 and the franchise as a whole.
In addition to explaining Shepard's latest mission, the May issue includes an in-depth look at Spider-Man: Edge of Time, a status report on upcoming Kinect software, and an examination of rumors that Activision might buy Take Two.
While you're waiting, you can marvel at the image you'll see adorning the issue when it's in your hands.

Re: Mass Effect 3 Officially Confirmed
Mass Effect 3 details:
here will be no multiplayer in Mass Effect 3, BioWare has apparently revealed.
Multiplayer will, however, be considered for future games and spin-offs, according to new details lifted from the latest issue of Game Informer (read by NeoGAF).
Mass Effect 3 will offer more than one bad ending and more than one good ending, depending on the turns your personal story makes. Your choice of companions also affects the outcome.
The RPG elements of Mass Effect are being expanded for the third game. Skill trees will be larger, and powers can evolve several times. In Mass Effect 2 there were only four tiers of skill advancement.
Weapon mods return, not quite to the degree of Mass Effect 1 - but there's the option to swap scopes, barrels, etc. This affects not only the behaviour of the weapon, but also its appearance.
Characters returning in Mass Effect 3 include love interests Liara T'Soni, Kaidan Alenko and Ashley Williams. Squad members Garrus, Wrex, Mordin and Legion are pencilled in (providing they didn't die), as is Anderson. Whether these old faces can be recruited remains to be seen.
James Sanders - a possible offspring of Mass Effect novel heroine Kahlee Sanders - can also apparently join your team.
Mass Effect 3 starts as Shepard stands trial for his actions in recent ME3 DLC Arrival. Part-way through the hearing the Reapers invade earth. Mass Effect 3's prologue involves Shepard escaping to the Normandy, before rocketing off to put the old team back together. He'll fight Reaper-controlled husks of all species along the way.
Like Mass Effect 2 on PS3, the third game packs an interactive digital comic to both backfill the story as well as take your input on key series decisions.
Enigmatic Mass Effect 2 patron the Illusive Man also returns, his Cerberus operation now tasked with killing Shepard. Why the Illusive Man has turned the tables on his former champion remains to be seen.
Interestingly, BioWare has also denied any multiplayer for Mass Effect 3. It's a feature for future games or spin-offs, apparently.
ami always sure silam je Bioware kokhono multiplayer dibe na ei game ta te .... karon ei dhoroner great game gula te multiplayer dewa means simply franchise ta k ruin kora
even many mass effect fans also requested to Bioware not to give any multiplayer feature
nice to see Bioware is on the right track ...
