The Mass Effect series has always had amazing trailers, and the latest epic cinematic launch trailer for Mass Effect 3 that just premiered during AMC’s The Walking Dead is no exception. The newest trailer, entitled “Take Earth Back”, is 90 seconds of amazing visuals that’s going to make the next two weeks of waiting for ME3 feel like 90 years.
Whenever there’s an argument over whether we need new gaming systems, no words will be needed; just this trailer is all that needs to be shown. Hopefully one day we’ll have Mass Effect 6 on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox 720 that will look this good. Until then, we have Mass Effect 3, which is set for release on March 6, 2012, for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
In case you missed it during The Walking Dead last night or just don’t watch The Walking Dead (why the hell don’t you watch The Walking Dead?), you can check out the full trailer in HD below, and we’ll have an extended version on Tuesday.
Update 2/21/12: As promised, BioWare has just released the extended version and it’s almost a crime that they didn’t just release this version first… it’s that good. Linking together other teasers from the past, the full version of Mass Effect 3‘s launch trailer is one of the best ever. If this doesn’t make you want to buy ME3, you might need to see a doctor.
