To usher in the Mass Effect 3 demo Bioware has put out what I’d like to call an almost art house cinematic teaser called ‘Take Earth Back’. The reason for me using the whole art house description is because this trailer doesn’t feature Shepherd, or any of the other Mass Effect characters that we’ve come to know and love, but rather it features a small girl playing in a field who happens to stumble upon a Reaper invader. The short uses almost no sound to really hammer home the point that Earth is going to get extremely f*cked up in ME3, and that many innocent people like the little girl, will inevitably perish in the invasion.
It’ll be up to you and your Commander Shepherd to take Earth back and get revenge for this poor little girl’s demise. Check it out below and appreciate the softer side of video games. The full version will air this Sunday during The Walking Dead on AMC. You’ve decided that you’re just going to wait for the full ME3 experience this March, and will bypass the demo…
