Yesterday, Bioware launched 20 copies of Mass Effect 3 into space and back to earth attached to a pair of weather balloons. Both balloons landed in inaccessible locations, although the photo above shows gawkers checking out one of the payloads which is reportedly 150 up in a redwood tree in Northern California's Big Basin.
Today, Bioware is launching packages in Las Vegas. Hopefully, these copies of the game won't end up in trees -- just desert. So get your dune-buggy ready if you're near Las Vegas. It looks like the Las Vegas Mass Effect 3 copies haven't taken off yet, but they were originally scheduled to go up at 11 AM.
While we won't have video of the launch in LV, we do have a look at yesterday's launch. Imagine the scene below, but with less water and more desert.
More balloon-related news as it becomes available.
