Make life easier against the Reaper invasion

Written by Dat Boi Treezy on 04 January 12 at 21:41 | Credit to Mr J Muffin

Bioware have released a new pre-order bonus trailer for their huge upcoming title http://www.trueachievements.com/Mass-Effect-3-xbox-360.htm.

The trailer showcases each of the pre-order bonuses in action along with a few details on each regarding their key features. The trailer starts of by showing the N7 Defender Armor, which comes fully equipped with increased health, amplified shields, extra weapon damage and ammo capacity. Secondly, the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle is ready to be put to work and fires in with "high caliber rounds and superior accuracy". Lastly, we have the M55 Argus Assault Rifle, with which players can let rip with "accurate burst fire" that is "devastating at any range".

Witness all the pre-order goods in action with this trailer:



Since this article was originally posted, several screens have also been released.

Yikes. I'm preordering the game even if it meant having a baby Thresher Maw spawn in Shepard's suit randomly during the game.

Why US only?? Isn't this discrimination towards us Europeans? Isn't there an international law against this? :) With or without bonuses, this epic title remains a must buy if you ask me!

I loved the first one, still haven't played the second. Making the game easier seems like a good way to go, but I'm assuming in game armor eventually beats this out.

Yes, I said I'd play it easier. If I put anywhere near enough time into this as I did the first one, it'd be nice to have a boosting point. Too bad I'm broke lol

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!!

EFF your item packs LAMESTOP.

Wait a few weeks after launch - the game gets cheaper and they will have patched some of the glitches.

I'm sure there is more to come...Dr Pepper exclusive, BF3 themed weapons and armor, Dragon Age stuff, "I played ME and ME2" unlocks...the one constant with Bioware games is you start with too many weapon and armor choices!!
Killer Punks...all that needs to be said.

As usual with these things, I'm expecting GAME and Gamestop to run separate, but probably similarly shitty, preorder deals on this here in Sweden, but I honestly couldn't care less. I'll get it where it's cheapest, an assault rifle here or a special piece of armor there won't sway me. I just hope that if ME3 has something along the lines of ME2's Cerberus Network (basically a Season Pass Lite you got for buying the game new), we get more than like... TWO free DLC packs out of it roll

Pre-order in-game items very rarely interest me. I'm a traditionalist, and I love trinkets; give me some sort of figurine or artbook any day!

Not that it matters, as I'm in the UK anyway... but hey ho! Still likely to be picking ME3 up.

More pre-order information here.: http://www.masseffect.com/me3/game/preorderbonus/

If I read this correctly:

Gamestop gets the N7 Warfare Gear.

EA Origin gets the AT12 Raider Shotgun.

All pre-orders get the M55 Argus Assault Rifle.

Big Boss Ocelot said:Man this game looks good, I just couldn't get into the first or 2nd one at all.Then you most likely won't enjoy this, as it looks to just basically be ME2+. Which is absolutely amazing as far as I'm concerned, but you might disagree. And besides, one of the main qualities this series has is the character transfer system, and seeing your actions in one game have noticable consequences in the sequels. Missing out on that (not mentioning the fact that you'd also miss out on understanding much of the story) would make the game a lot less fun.

If you couldn't get into the first 2, odds are extremely low you'll feel any different about this one.

What a joke. So basically Pre-order the game to make it easier. No thanks.

Now if it said pre-order for extra conversational options or an extra side mission or two then I'd consider it. Don't see that happening with Mass Effect ever again though, Bioware seem to be taking the franchise down the route of a Transformers film with the emphasis on BIS ASSPLOSIONSSSCIO%^&£*( rather than on it's original P.O.S of being an RPG.
