In what can be viewed in some ways as a departure from the series (not a whole lot of melee fighting going on in Mass Effect generally) or others as more closely holding to the spirit of the series (melee is awesome, Mass Effect is awesome, you do the math), Mass Effect 3 is apparently getting a completely melee-focused class. Among other things.
So, besides the punching and kicking-focused melee class, we can expect more dynamic combat, two-kilometre Reaper enemies, a slew of companions from both prequels, including Liara, Ashley Williams, Kaidan Alenko, Legion and, yes, finally, Wrex. RPG elements will play a larger role, with upgradable powers and a PS3-style digital comic will be included to fill in the late-comers. Oh, also, the Illusive Man will be trying to kill you. There are plenty more details of a more spoiler-ish nature, so we’ve decided not to include them here. Suffices to say we’re… excited.
