Watch a Thresher save Shepard’s skin in latest Mass Effect 3 video

Sunday, 11th December 2011 04:47 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Bioware released a new video for Mass Effect 3 tonight, which received its world premiere during the VGAs. In it, Commander Shepard is trying to escape being obliterated by a Reaper when a Thresher Maw bursts onto the scene, inadvertently saving his life. It’s pretty intense to watch, and you can do just that below the break. There’s also a few screen grabs through here. Mass Effect 3 is out in March on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. A demo is set for release in January, with Battlefield 3 players getting the first crack at it.

    He wasn’t saved by the Thresher Maw, he summoned it, it’s like a giant Thresher who was supposed to live on Tuchanka but was never seen before (See Mass Effect Wiki for further info) which explains the controversy a while back about the GameInformer Coverstory because people couldn’t really understand how a normal Thresher Maw could attack a giant Reaper …

    Yeah that’s not a thresher if you watch the video right near the end you see others falling from orbit, those guys I assume only appear if you saved a certain insect in Mass Effect 1.
