Mass Effect 3 is the upcoming third and final game in the Mass Effect trilogy of video games developed by BioWare, and published by Electronic Arts with a tentative release date of "Holiday 2011" (referring to the November-January holiday season). The game will be released simultaneously on Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
The game's director, Casey Hudson, commented that Mass Effect 3 "will be easier [to develop] because we don't have to worry about continuity into the next one," and that the game's development will follow a timeframe similar to that of Mass Effect 2. Decisions will still be imported from the two previous titles to Mass Effect 3, as to keep continuity within the series. Hudson also said in an interview at the Consumer Electronics Show that BioWare is already at work on Mass Effect 3. Mass Effect 3 will complete the story arc of Commander Shepard, and will pull in over 1,000 variables from Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 to shape how players experience the final chapter.
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.
