Mass Effect 3's New Squad Leader Combat Trailer

Commander Shepard has proven more than once that he can hold his own in a fight, but with his team at his side, he has the potential to stand up to just about anyone — including Cerberus' newest combat suit, Atlas Mech. Today at GamesCom the Mass Effect team released their first trailer in a new series of videos featuring the combat of Mass Effect 3. The series' debut video focuses on the importance and different uses of Squad Leader Combat.

The firefights of Mass Effect 3 promise to be bigger and more difficult than ever, and using squad commands to adjust to each change on the battlefield is essential to your team's survival. Watch as Shepard, Liara, and Garrus go head-to-head with a Cerberus unit before getting a visit from an Atlas Mech.

Commander Shepard and his team of handpicked combat specialists are faced with a near impossible task in Mass Effect 3, the latest installment in the sci-fi action adventure series. An ancient alien race, known only as the Reapers, has launched an all-out invasion of the galaxy, leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the universe is on the verge of total annihilation, and Shepard must lead the counter assault to take it back. The price of failure is extinction.

Only you, as Shepard, can determine how events will play out. Pre-order your copy of Mass Effect 3 on Origin and prepare for galactic war.
