BioWare Unveils Full-Length "Take Earth Back" Trailer

BioWare Unveils Full-Length "Take Earth Back" Trailer

The Reapers are here, and so is the full length Mass Effect 3 "Take Earth Back" cinematic extendo-trailer!

You don't have to be Kreskin to figure out that the Reapers aren't just popping over to see how we're doing after all that nastiness with the Turians a few years back. They're here to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and they're all outta bubblegum! (Fortunately the supply of little girls playing in the grass seems pretty solid.)

Also fortunate is the presence of Commander Shepard, the intrepid gunslinger from outer space. He's on the scene and boy oh boy, he's not happy! Luckily for the future of humanity, he brought along more than just his lady friend; he's also got a couple armored regiments, a fleet of air support and a whole bunch of mean-lookin' dudes just spoiling for a fight. And then the Mancubus shows up! And the Commander leaps into everyone's line of fire, so he can clean house with the most awesome Superman punch ever! Because this is personal, baby!

Okay, yes, the trailer was a little over-the-top for my tastes, but I suppose that when you get down to it, the destruction of the Earth is pretty serious business. All jokes aside, there aren't many games I'm looking forward to more than this one. Mass Effect 3 comes out on March 6 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

OT: I liked this trailer much better than the two shorter versions I have seen. The buildup was much better.

Ash still bothers me though.

Guys I found proff that not everyone on youtube is a complete moron
From the comemnts section

2 millions sun flowers dead in the first day.another 7 million by the end of the first week. all our farmers on the run. if shepard doesnt bring help soon there wont be a plant to save

It's funny because it's changing the words of the original teaser.

So Mass Effect 3 gets Michael Bay treatment the same day I saw new The Big Picture episode ...

Its a good day for Michael Bay. :)

My interest is rekindled, too bad Asura's Wrath comes out on the same day in the UK, or i might have made it a first day purchase.

I really don't get why people keep saying this?

Yes, there is now a war going on, it is cinematic. That makes it Michael bay? Come on, did we want the reapers to land boringly, occasionally shoot something, and have characters yell "HOLY SHIT THE WORLDS ENDING" because if that happened all I would've said was "You sure about that?"

OT: Nice trailer, the opening especially with the reapers landing. Although the Alliance soldier one handing the shotgun annoyed me a bit.

They made it so corny, that it's overflowing with husks.

hi im commander shepard and this is my favourite trailer on the internet.

seriously loved it

So it's kinda like what Halo 2 was supposed to be about... except it's awesome this time because Microsoft isn't tampering with the story to bleed an extra sequel out of it.

Let me get my brain from behind my chair.

Ah, there. Why does it have to all be about the damn humans? Thank goodness that ME3 is only book-ended by Earth, with cool alien stuff in between.

I see what you did there.

I loved the bit with the charge of the Makos. The rhinoceros with butterfly wings is back baby.

I get more of a Halo 3 vibe. "Finish the fight" and all that.

realy like the music at the start anyone know who did it?

Its "After the Fall" by 2 Steps from Hell. They do a lot of trailer music, and its generally pretty epic.
OP: I really like this trailer. The original was awesome, and the bonus scenes only make it better.

The band is Two Steps From Hell, song in the second half is Black Blade, name of the first song eludes me but it's from the same band.

Nifty.

Also, I loved the bit where the Normandy was flying with the fleet of Alliance ships. That was very cool.

Although, I've gotta say... it's been three years since they shipped the Prototype. Where is the rest of the SR series? Shouldn't they be mass producing these Normandy-type ships by now? They're fast enough to dodge Reaper attacks (as demonstrated in ME1 and possibly ME2 with the late-game collector ship battle), and powerful enough to deal damage to Reaper ships (particularly if you got the prototype Turian gun that was based on Sovereign's gun).

What I really want to see is the Normandy leading a whole fleet of SR frigates. ^^

This is defiantly better than the short ones. also.......

Is it just me or did anyone else's nipples get hard?

Eh. If you make a game trailer look like a movie trailer, and if said movie trailer would imply a movie that looks like ass, I wouldn't be impressed. And as such, am not.

Would it like to be a little more cliche? Oh look, a child. And flowers! Look at all that innocence. Gross.

Bara_no_Hime:

Well the reason was is that the cost of Normandy was tremendous compared to that of even the Alliances largest ship.

Like I said in another thread, it's a resounding 'meh' from me.

It didn't make me as nearly excited for ME3 than the trailer they did for ME2.

In fact, I actually prefer the very first trailer for ME3 over this one. You know the one, the sniper in Big Ben.

Yeah, we're all better off that EA is only tampering with the story to get a spinoff out of it.

Seems like a mixture of Halo and CoD now, almost unrecognizable from ME1 (which was better than and unrecognizable from ME2). Kinda sad, the direction this game has taken, although it should still be a good conclusion to the story.
Also, did anyone notice how EVERY reaper looks like Sovereign, despite the fact that each reaper was supposed to be made from a species of alien that was harvested? I could understand a few that were from the same race, but it just seems lazy on Bioware's part to not have some different designs. Whew, would be banned for this if this was on the Bioware forums.

It's already been explained elsewhere that Reapers all share the same outward appearance, but their cores are what resemble the races they were constructed from.

So, in ME2, the human Reaper would still look like that, but it would still end up with the shell of a giant squid.

Resistance 2 did this kind of trailer and did it better. Not impressed.

At the end of ME2 all the reapers did have different designs, and in the game itself the reapers look different, this just seems to be a failing on the trailers part.

EDIT: When I say different designs, I meant the shells looked a little different, they still mostly resembled squids.

Andy Chalk:

You're quite right, there here for tea and crumpets!

(As for said trailer all I can say is... kinky!)

More like: the Rockstar horse with a camera magnet shuved up it's ass is back.

Ahem, cuttlefish, not squid.

Now that I'm done being pedantic. >.>

It was alright. Nothing special. Favorite part, oddly enough, was the sniper in Big Ben. Now there's a mission I'd like to play, as a sniper taking out husks, giving people a chance to escape. Being "The Hero" fun and all, but sometimes it's fun to be just some guy, helping others survive.

Almost as good as the Dead Island trailer...]

...fortunately, I doubt the game is gonna be anywhere's close to THAT bad!

But if it is...

The Reapers hath no fury compared to the ME3 fans...

Um... Bioware wants to do spin-offs. You think they wrote-up an elaborate world like Mass Effect for just one trilogy? We're gonna be seeing Mass Effect games for years to come, and EA doesn't need to tamper much to make that happen.

WhiteTigerShiro:

Jade Empire says otherwise... But that was before EA and it didn't sell well or something.

But yes; they plan for spin-offs. Mass Effect 3 is apparently going to be the end of Shepard's story.

thanks for the info on the song
