Mass Effect 3 Special Edition plunges you into an all-out galactic war to take Earth back from a nearly unstoppable foe -- and how you fight that war is entirely up to you. Groundbreaking interactive storytelling drives the heart-pounding action in which each decision you make could have dire and deadly consequences. You are Commander Shepard, the only one who can save Earth from annihilation.
BioWare makes its debut on the Nintendo console with the gripping blockbuster game of the year: Mass Effect 3 - coming to the Wii U™ console with brand new features and content that fully take advantage of the Wii U hardware. Command the battlefield like never before by using the Wii U™ GamePad to issue commands and unleash devastating attacks. Bonus content includes an additional mission and squad member, an exclusive new weapon, the Extended Cut ending, and an interactive backstory experience detailing previous events in the Mass Effect universe.
The war to Take Earth Back begins on March 6, 2012 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
Not everyone will survive. An ancient alien race, known only as "Reapers", has launched an all-out invasion leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction.
You are Commander Shepard, a character that you can forge in your own image. You determine how events will play out, which planets to explore, and whom to form alliances with as you rally a force to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all.
How you wage this war is completely up to you: go into combat with guns blazing or use cover to plan a more tactical assault. Utilize your squad to full effect or take a lone wolf approach. Rain death from a distance or go toe--to-toe with enemies using devastating melee attacks.
Mass Effect 3 will react to each decision you make as you play through a truly unique experience of your own creation. The war for Earth has begun, decide how it ends.
