Feast Your Unworthy Eyes On New Mass Effect 3 Shots

You can count on EA to make Mass Effect 3 a big part of E3 this year. While we're all a little bit worried by the hasty development schedule - we don't want another Dragon Age 2 on our hands - let's not get too cynical now, especially when Bioware drop no less than eight new screenshots online for us to pore and salivate over.

First off, we get a glimpse of the new species' Husks alluded to in Game Informer's exclusive preview. In the shot above, we can clearly see the neon blue-speckled frame of a human Husk, shambling along, but standing beside it, all eyes and nostrils and fearsome cannon, is a Batarian Husk, bolstering their ranks as a tank-type of sorts. It looks incredible. I can't wait to blow that arm off.

We have quite a few shots of Shepard and Liara battling Cerberus shock-troopers, and one shot in particular - highlighted above - shows Shepard smacking one with the butt of his rifle. It's been revealed that Mass Effect 3 features a new Heavy Melee class, to show off Bioware's newfangled CQC system. Might this be a low-level example?

Another scene gives us a glimpse of what I believe is the Salarian home-world. A landscape of layered platforms at a steep incline, festooned with exotic flora and a particularly beautiful sunset. I was a little bit miffed when earlier shots revealed this to be the Salarian planet, as it's just not alien enough for me! Hopefully it's just one portion of a wider palette of environments.

The last shot appears to be Captain Anderson - voiced by the terrific Keith David, who also supplied the dulcet tones of the Arbiter in Halo - looking out from a lofty perch across a cityscape of tapering towers. I can't deny I'm excited by the promise of Mass Effect 3, of taking the fight to Earth and seeing just what Bioware can do with a futuristic vision of our planet.

Tell us, what do you think of Mass Effect 3? Worried by the all-too-quick development schedule? Or can you simply not wait for the next chapter in Bioware's epic space opera? [Eurogamer]
