GameStop US has announced it’ll open 3,600 stores in the country for midnight launches of Mass Effect 3 next week.

There’ll be special events in place featuring streams from Edmonton, Canada – where BioWare’s HQ is based – as well as West Hollywood, Chicago and Boston.

GameStop will also offer pre-order bonuses, like the N7 valkyrie assault rifle and N7 defender Armor, as well as an additional $50 off a Kinect to go with shouting voice orders at your group or selecting in-game story dialogue if bought between March 6-11.

The BioWare RPG launches in America next Tuesday for PS3, 360 and PC.
