Bleh mgarble figing mung I’m sorry, but in my excitement I lost the use of my fingers momentarily. BioWare have given us something to look forward to in January, picking us up from those post Christmas blues – Mass Effect 2 has an official release date of January 29th 2010 in Europe and a 26th in the US (lucky chumps) for both PC and Xbox 360. As is the norm nowadays, preordering Mass Effect 2 will reward us with all kinds of lovelies but so far, only GameStop in America has revealed such bonuses as;
- The Terminus Armor (seen above) is designed for use in extreme planetary conditions, increasing run speed and personal shields, and augmenting weapons with an additional magazine of reserve ammo.
- The M-490 Blackstorm Heavy Weapon generates a high-powered localized gravity well, accelerating particles to near-infinite mass, and ultimately expanding the selection of heavy weapons available to players when they gear up for combat missions in Mass Effect 2.
Fingers crossed that European retailers get similar deals. Dr Ray Muzyka, BioWare co-founder said “BioWare’s fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting this epic sequel, and we couldn’t be more excited to reward them for pre-ordering by delivering some awesome bonus content!” Yes yes, it’s great that we may miss out on content if we buy the game somewhere else. I had no idea that ME2 would come out so early in 2010 and expected the game to be released around Easter. But hey, I’m not complaining!
