Mass Effect 3 Synopsis Revealed

Over at EA’s website and web-store, the company has officially announced Mass Effect 3 and has provided a synopsis for the story we’re all dying to play…and this time, the goal is Earth.

From what sounds like a plot to just about any sci-fi epic *cough*Halo*cough*, we now know that something happened at the end of Mass Effect 2 which caused someone, whether it be the Reapers or the Geth, to take over Earth. Here, read it for yourself.

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.

This makes some pretty good sense since in the books we found out that Earth’s Mass Effect relay was buried underneath ice on what we once thought was planet Pluto’s moon Charon. Maybe like the forerunners in the aforementioned sci-fi game, they sealed us off on purpose because Earth has ‘something special’.

I can’t wait to find out, but like all good things, I’ll have to wait for it. There’s no current release date, so keep checking back with us as new details emerge.

Thanks to Destructoid for finding the listing.
