Default Mass Effect 2 - News Roundup

December 22nd, 2009, 23:12
Not surprisingly, the Mass Effect 2 PR machine is in overdrive while everyone else is slipping out the back door for the holiday season. There's a couple of new videos and other stuff today, so I'll collect it here.
First, the promised the three-minute cinematic trailer that was previously teased has been released. It doesn't appear to have been widely circulated yet but there's a streaming version at Shack, along with a second "unofficial" trailer.
IGN reveals the Infiltrator class, with a video and quick Q&A with Lead Combat Designer Christina Norman:
IGN: What type of player is the Infiltrator most suited for?

Christina Norman:
If you love stealth action gameplay you'll definitely want to try the infiltrator out.

Another player type that will really like the infiltrator is anyone who loves using sniper rifles in shooters. We've dramatically improved our sniper rifle combat for Mass Effect 2. The first thing we did was completely redesign our sniper rifles so they all feel powerful and precise. Then we added location based damage, and positional damage reactions. Some enemies you can literally dismantle, limb by limb, with precise surgical sniper rifle fire.

What makes the infiltrator the class best sniper class are his Tactical Cloak and Operative powers. We've already discussed how cloak lets you line up perfect headshots. Operative improves your weapon damage, and also adds a time slowdown effect whenever you are aiming your sniper rifle. This makes it easy to line up headshots, even against moving enemies. Combined with the damage boost from Tactical Cloak, infiltrators are without question the ultimate snipers.
Also at IGN is some info on the sex scenes, courtesy of comments from the ESRB and, finally, the Achievements have been revealed (spoilers, obviously).
More information.

Whoever is a moderator or has the editing privaleges, would you edit this article, and include that the HD version of the full 3 minute long Blur Trailer HAS been uploaded to Youtube.
I've uploaded it to my youtube profile, which is the same screenname as it is here: javierabegazo
Or just for convenience sake, here's the link to the video
