The latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine has dropped some new Mass Effect 3 details.

As collected by a NeoGAF user, the new details provide information regarding various gameplay elements present in the game.

Spoilers ahead.

  • You can jump and roll in the game, and blindfire has been introduced.
  • As well as gaining civilisation’s allegiance, you can lose them to the Reapers if you don’t play right, similarly to losing squadmates in the suicide mission.
  • Your weapons have three upgrade slots -scope, barrel and grip, and you can change the colour and camouflage of weapons.
  • Cerberus and Husks will be main enemies, and Cerberus is divided into three main types of troops – heavy bruisers, medium and light.
  • You may be able to get an eyepiece, like Garrus’s, that will allow non-sniper weapons to scope in further, which also hints at armour having more of an effect on gameplay.
  • Bioware is going to announce something big at E3 – a lot of the gameplay features and more squadmates.

Mass Effect 3 recently got delayed into the first three months of 2012.

The game’s in development for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
