Even though we all know that Mass Effect 3 was obviously going to be announced tomorrow at the 2010 Video Game Awards on Spike. Some poor guy has accidentally pushed the publish button and for a brief couple of minutes, Mass Effect 3 was able to be pre-ordered on the EA Store for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. A short description of the plot of the game was even provided. The store pages have been pulled off the site now but the screenshots below explain all.
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.
The prices and the consoles for all we know could be completely wrong. But for now just be safe in knowing that Mass Effect 3 exists and I’m sure you’ll be finding out much more about it tomorrow.
