Mass Effect 3 is coming in March 2012, which is really getting awfully close now. It's going to bring to a close the trilogy that BioWare started in 2007 with the first game, but that doesn't mean you should expect the same old everything. There are plenty of new tools for you to make use of, especially in the sci-fi RPG's action-focused combat scenarios, as a newly released video reveals.
There's some cool stuff in here. A new Krogan shotgun. Powered up heavy melee attacks. The ability to hack turrets that enemy engineers place in the world and redirect their fire toward your foes. I could run through the rest, but gameplay designer Eric Fagnan and combat designer Corey Gaspur know the stuff a lot better, and they have moving pictures to share. Skip to around 1:50 for the new hotness.
