BioWare Launches Mass Effect 2 to Intergalactic Acclaim
One of 2010's most anticipated blockbuster videogames ships to stores worldwide
BioWare announced that Mass Effect 2 has begun shipping to retailers worldwide. It is noted for its intense shooter gameplay and deep, hand-crafted story.
The Mass Effect trilogy is an epic science fiction adventure set in a vast universe filled with dangerous alien life and mysterious, uncharted planets. In Mass Effect 2, players will once again step into the role of the heroic Commander Shepard, commanding their crew of some of the most dangerous operatives from across the galaxy on a mission so challenging that it’s potentially suicidal. Featuring intense shooter action, a rich futuristic storyline, space exploration and emotionally engaging character interaction, the game delivers an unparalleled cinematic experience.
Gamers who purchase a new copy of Mass Effect 2 will also be able to activate the ‘Cerberus Network’, an in-game portal in Mass Effect 2 that will keep fans engaged with the Mass Effect universe through downloadable content (DLC) and news at no extra charge. The first piece of DLC is now available, featuring a new mission around the Normandy crash site. For players who do not buy the game new, the ‘Cerberus Network’ can be unlocked through a one-time, in-game purchase of an activation code. BioWare will release additional news on future ‘Cerberus Network’ content in the coming weeks.
Mass Effect 2 is available for the Xbox 360 and the PC. For more information, visit the game’s official website at http://masseffect.bioware.com/
