Mass Effect 3 – two distinctive looks at the reaper invasion

Submitted by on Wednesday, 29 February 2012No Comment

A pair of Mass Effect 3 trailers, one live-action and one of the CGI variety await your eyeballs.

The reapers are coming! The reapers are coming!



The Real Deal

Just ahead of the Mass Effect 3 release BioWare and EA premiered a very cinematic, live-action trailer portraying the reaper invasion during the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Reality and a green screen never looked so good (albeit horrifying).

So that’s what a Mass Effect movie would look like.

Computers Do It Better

Not to be outdone by Commander Shepard’s live-action debut, the Mass Effect 3 team also released a lengthy CG launch trailer to commemorate the series finale.

The scene opens with an adorable girl innocently playing with her toy Normandy in a field of sunflowers. Crashing into our atmosphere to rob us of our innocence and our sunflowers are the reapers.  Left in their wake is nothing but smoldering rubble and an orphaned toy. In steps Shepard to take earth back. It’s going to be one hell of a battle folks, don’t expect to come out clean.

With Mass Effect 3 now only a few days short of its March 6US/9UK release date we know most of you are already planning on picking up a copy but let us know which launch trailer you prefer.

For more Mass Effect 3 coverage have a look at the pre-order bonuses, more videos, the game’s voice talent roster and a look at multiplayer.
