What you’re seeing here are the ruins of London England in the year 2184 C.E. The cockney sounding gentlemen states that 2 million were killed in the first day, and another 7 million in the first week. While the numbers may seem low for a massive alien invasion, we are talking about the population of London after many humans left earth due to pollution and overpopulation problems. Also, we should all be aware that many of the humans are more than likley being harvested for some nefarious purpose, as seen in Mass Effect 2.
This just in. Bioware revealed a bit of interesting information about Mass Effect 3 via Twitter a few moments ago. If you were worried about Shepard starting all over from level one all over again, exhale! Your Shepard will pick up right where he/she left off. According to this recent tweet by lead designer Preston Watamaniuk “The level cap for #ME3 is 60. If you import from #ME2 you retain all class powers and your xp level.” With this information it appears we won’t have those terrible “level one blues!” We all hate lvl one right? I’m excited that Bioware went this route and increased the level cap to 60. I’d hate to see them have to explain how Commander Shepard “forgot” all of his/her abilities all over again. Nice!
