PlayStation 3 owners will soon be acquainted with Commander Shepard and his crew when Mass Effect 2 launches on January 18. If you're wondering what kind of person Shepard is like, let his badass self show you what he's capable of with this launch trailer:
Since this is the second game in the trilogy, BioWare is offering an interactive comic to recap the events of the first Mass Effect and allows players to make key decisions that'll affect events in Mass Effect 2. From there, you can enjoy the full game plus all previously released DLC such as "Lair of the Shadow Broker" straight from the disc.
Don't feel like running out to the store to grab ME2? You can also buy the full game from the PlayStation Network on day one if you're willing to wait for a huge download. PlayStation Plus subscribers get a one-hour full game trial at the game's release but everyone is free to try out the demo as well.
