At EA's E3 2011 press conference, Bioware has confirmed that Mass Effect 3 will be released on March 9, 2012

The press conference also showcased the new hard-hitting, combat-focused gameplay with the debut gameplay trailer "Fall Of Earth."

In Mass Effect 3, an ancient alien race known only as “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 galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them.

The price of failure is extinction. You, as Commander Shepard, must lead the counter assault to take it back. Only you can determine how events will play out, which planets you will save from annihilation and which alliances you will form or abandon as you rally the forces of the galaxy to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all.

We'll bring you the full gameplay trailer shortly.
