There will be perks for gamers who pre-order Mass Effect 3. GameStop have said that their exclusive perks are the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle and the N7 Defender Armour.
The N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle will be a rare back market item for everyone else. The N7 Defender Armour works by channeling energy from the armour into weapons; to boost weapon power, ammo capacity – and apparently armour strength too.
We also know that gamers who pick up the game directly from EA’s Origin store enjoy a free AT-12 Raider Shotgun. The shotgun fires a large spread of pellets, with a quick load time between shots and is designed especially for close combat.
Gamers are left to assume that other shops may qualify for different pre-order perks. It’s also an assumption that similar deals will be available in Europe and elsewhere. There may also be a collectors edition with different goodies.
Anyone else think that game buying has become quite a tactical process these days? Are you going to pick up Mass Effect 3 and if so – how?
