Is it just me, or did this come around quickly? It's time for the official Mass Effect 3 reveal with a big GameInformer cover article in the May edition. You can check out the cover art in the meantime.
In other Mass Effect news, an anime movie deal has been announced:

Leak from gameinformer

- Game begins with Shepard on Earth

- Reapers invade while the trial is happening
- Prologue: Shepard's escape to the Normandy, off to start finding allies, fighting Reaper troops
- Squadmates include Liara, Ashley/Kaiden, Garrus, James Sanders
- Screenshot shown of Ashley with her hair down
- Confirmed appearances (may not be squadmates): Wrex, Mordin, Legion, and Anderson
- Game will show a "previously on Mass Effect" comic to make decisions if you're starting from scartch
- The Illusive Man plays a big role
- Cerberus is out to kill Shepard
- Enhanced RPG elements
- More freedom with character skills
- Larger skill trees

- Powers will evolve several times, not just once
- Weapons are like the ones in Mass Effect 2, have a set list
- Mods returning, swap out different parts such as barrels, scopes (effect both the weapon's combat performance and its appearance)
- Numerous endings
- Who you have in your squad and which allies you recruit greatly impact the endings that are available
- No multiplayer
Are they learning something with DA2?
Hmm….. This seems to good to be true.

Edit: I just noticed this is already being discussed in here:
